    Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will make his broadcasting debut at a golf tournament in North Texas this weekend.

    During an award ceremony Monday night, CBS Sports producer Lance Barrow said Romo would be part of the team that covers the Dean & Deluca Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.

    "[Romo] will be in the announce booth at 18 for a few moments," Barrow said. "And it will be the first time that he will have the CBS Sports blazer on."

    A Periscope video captured the news, which Barrow asked to be kept a secret.
