Cowboys QB Romo 36th in Big Amateur Tourney

tony romo golfTony Romo is a darn good golfer. The Cowboys quarterback loves to play, and has even tried to qualify for the PGA Tour Byron Nelson Classic.

Last weekend he wrapped up play in the Azalea Invitational, a major amateur tournament that draws a field including some of the top collegiate and amateur golfers in the U.S. Golfweek reports:

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo finished T-34 at 19-over 303, a shot ahead of former U.S. Amateur runner-up and Walker Cup captain Buddy Marucci. Romo shot 2-under 69 in the third round.

Romo posted rounds of 73-80-69-81 to finish at 19-over 303. That 303 total is better than it sounds when you take into account that nobody finished below par - and only two golfers did better than 8-over - in the event played at The Country Club of Charleston in South Carolina. The winner, University of Alabama-Birmingham golfer Zack Sucher, finished at even.

Other notables: All-American and Curtis Cup team member Webb Simpson, second, 2-over; top college golfers Trent Leon and Kevin Tway, 8-over; Trip Kuehne at 14-over.

    Does anyone know where Tony keeps his handicap? Is he an amateur, or a pro? His name on the Byron qualifier list is as a pro.
