The Open Championship (which apparently has become sufficiently pretentious to justify dropping “British” from the title) wasn’t the only golf tournament this weekend. In Nevada, a gaggle of celebrities gathered for the annual American Century Championship, televised by NBC.
He wasn’t even the highest-placing quarterback.
Former hockey player Dan Quinn won the tournament, with former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien finishing second. Former Broncos quarterback and current Broncos V.P. of football operations John Elway came in third. And former NFL quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver finished fourth.
Romo, who previously has tried to qualify for the U.S. Open (at some point, it probably will just be “the Open”) was fifth.
The good news for Romo is that he finished ahead of former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann, who came in sixth. If Theismann had beaten Romo, Romo never would have heard the end of it.
Along with the rest of us.
