Tony Romo likes golf; he loves football.
So, Cowboys fans, there’s no need to fret about Romo firing a 72 in a pre-qualifier for the HP Byron Nelson Championship that allows him to move on to the open qualifying event next Monday. He will be at the team’s first OTA of the offseason that same morning, according to the Dallas Morning News.
“If a tee time doesn’t work out, you just can’t play,” Romo said following his round. “At the end of the day, football is what I do. Golf is enjoyable. It’s fun to compete and try to be good at it, but it’s more fun to compete and get better at football. I think everyone knows that.”
Apparently not everyone does.
But anyway, Romo will be there, and he’ll have his first chance to develop chemistry with rookie WR Dez Bryant, a new weapon that Romo is excited to have.
“For me, anytime you can add more weapons, it’s a positive to the offensive unit,” Romo said. “I’m anxious to see what level he’s going to be able to play at. They say he is pretty natural catching the ball and does some good things. It’s all a part of getting out there and seeing who is going to step up, who is going to play well and who is going to be ready to go.”
