    Former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is back competing on the golf course.

    Romo's CBS broadcasting partner, Jim Nantz, told Golf.com that Romo will get an exemption to play in a PGA Tour Event "in the next – let's just say two months. So he's going to put it out there on the line."

    Nantz also described Romo as a "golf fantatic" in the interview, pointing out Romo travels with a putter on the road, "even up into the booth."

    In May 2017, Romo played in a U.S. Open qualifyer at Split Rail Links & Golf Club in Aledo but didn't advance.
