Tony Romo may have had some fine seasons in the NFL, but excelling at another sport is a whole new ball game.
Per the Chicago Tribune, the recently retired former Cowboys quarterback missed the cut at the Western Amateur after taking a slow-play penalty.
"Tony Romo has flourished against celebrities in Lake Tahoe, but the millennials crushed him at the Western Amateur. Playing on a sponsor's invitation at Skokie Country Club in Glencoe, the retired Cowboys quarterback missed the cut after shooting 80-82," wrote the Tribune.
Romo beat only two of the 155 players who completed 36 holes, and he was assessed a one-stroke penalty Wednesday for slow play.
"He was very gracious about it," Western Golf Association tournament chief Vince Pellegrino said. "His group fell behind and missed two checkpoints. The others in the group did not receive a penalty. They made an effort to close the gap. Tony readily accepted it."
There's some good news in Romo's competition life though: he'll get his chance to turn things around Thursday night at the Hall of Fame game.
