Tony Romo Accepts Korn Ferry Sponsor Invite

Tony Romo loves him some golf. And he’ll gladly play against the pros whenever the opportunity strikes. His latest attempt to make the cut will be at the Korn Ferry Veritex Bank Championship at Texas Rangers GC in April.

This is the perfect event for Romo’s starpower to draw extra eyeballs and gallery (at least for the first two rounds). And forget about any backlash from players complaining he’s taking up a valuable spot for a struggling pro. This is all about marketing and entertainment. Good for Romo and the KF Tour.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to play at the Veritex Bank Championship against the future PGA Tour stars”, Romo stated. “Playing in the shadows of AT&T Stadium and having the tournament in my own back yard will be great. I have been working hard on my game and hope to make at little noise during the championship.”

While Romo will be making his tournament debut on the Korn Ferry Tour, he is no stranger to the Tour. He competed in the 2018 Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament, advancing through the Pre-Qualifying Stage before falling short with a T72 finish at First Stage.

Romo has yet to make the cut in any pro tour event. His best finish is missing the weekend at the Safeway Open by six shots.
