Tony Romo has received a sponsor’s exemption to compete in the AT&T Byron Nelson in May.
The tournament will be played at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas, which is the home course of the former Cowboys quarterback.
“Golf is one of my greatest passions outside my family and football, and I am honored to have the opportunity to compete amongst the pros again in this year’s AT&T Byron Nelson,” Romo, now CBS’ lead football analyst, said in a release from the tournament.
Romo, 38, has tried but never qualified for the Nelson.
This will be Romo’s second pro tournament. He missed the cut last March when he shot a second-round 82 at the PGA Tour Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship event in the Dominican Republic.
Last fall, Romo reached the second round of qualifying on the Web.com tour.
That followed his July win at the American Century Championship in South Lake Tahoe, Nev.
