Tony Romo's career-best golf round has CBS watching closely

Tony Romo's career-best golf round has CBS watching closely

Romo is now scheduled to call the Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game on Sunday.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback is participating in the Safeway Open in California, and if he makes the weekend cut, he won't be able to make it to Soldier Field for Sunday's matchup between the Bears and Vikings. "The greens got a little bumpy this afternoon, but they're still rolling nice enough to make some putts". He seemed to be settling back to earth with two successive bogeys on his second nine, but rebounded for three birdies on the final five holes to finish in red numbers.

Romo, who is playing on a sponsor exemption, birdied his last two holes and beat his two playing partners, Beau Hossler (74) and Michael Gellerman (76).

Romo - the victor of the 2017 and 2018 American Century Championship - had a previous career-low round of 74 entering the 2019 Safeway Open. He made consecutive bogeys at Nos.

"I made a couple good putts, that was obviously awesome, and I struck it a lot better than I did yesterday", DeChambeau said in a televised interview.

Taylor, 31, was tied with South Africa's Dylan Frittelli and Americans Adam Long and Justin Thomas after the morning wave.

Romo was five strokes back of early clubhouse leader Adam Scott of Australia, having shown great progress from he earlier PGA efforts. The network told Marchand it has a backup analyst ready to fill in for Romo if necessary, but it wouldn't reveal who that person is.

Defending champion Kevin Tway was among those who missed the cut after shooting rounds of 71 and 72. "So there's eight to 10 shots right there, simply on the par-5s". I'm just trying to continue to improve and get better.

But with a strong start at Silverado in Napa, California, amateur golfer Romo might have to skip his usual job as an National Football League television commentator to play Sunday's final round.
