Tony Romo To Play In 2019 AT&T Byron Nelson Golf Tournament

Announced today, Tony Romo will play in the 2019 AT&T Byron Nelson

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback turned CBS football announcer is using his offseason to play golf.

Romo will play in the Byron Nelson in Dallas this May at Trinity Forest Golf Club.

The color analyst for CBS will play on a sponsors exemption as an amateur.

This will be Romo's second time teeing it up in a PGA Tour event with the first last year at Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.

“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 said.

There has been plenty of criticism of Romo playing as an amateur due to being sponsored and appearing in Skechers golf shoe commercials.

Byron Nelson's tournament raises money to assist children with social-emotional health through the Momentous Institute.
