Nearly three years ago, Golfweek's Forecaddie wondered aloud if Tony Romo's new mega-deal with CBS Sports would put a crimp in his emerging golf lifestyle, one that included yearly appearances at numerous celebrity golf tournaments and even some appearances on the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour.
From our piece:
Now here we are, with the New York Post's Andrew Marchand reporting that CBS had grown so alarmed with Romo's faltering performance that network execs urged him to take the job more seriously and add in some extra prep work. That meeting reportedly took place before last season, an intervention of sorts.
So what's led to Romo's regression? Radio host Colin Cowherd has a theory - golf.
On a recent podcast, Cowherd said Romo's love for golf might be competing for his time when he could be breaking down more tape and maintaining better connections in the topsy-turvy NFL world. Cowherd insisted the migration to golf is natural for many, and he even said he has gauged potential employees' love of golf before considering whether to hire them.
As for the former Cowboys quarterback, he's maintained a high profile in the golf world, even winning his third American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in 2022 by edging Mark Mulder and Joe Pavelski in a playoff. His other wins came in 2018 and 2019.
He also teamed with University of Texas prodigy Tommy Morrison to qualify for the 2023 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship slated for May 20-24 at Kiawah Island Club. That event will coincide with the NFL Spring Meetings, which starts on May 22.
