Former NFL quarterback and current CBS analyst Tony Romo is a very good golfer. While not good enough (yet) to do it professionally, he’s good enough to win the American Century Championship.

Romo has won the celebrity tournament three times. On Sunday, he won the annual Lake Tahoe event on the second hole of a three-man playoff. The other two who qualified for extra golf were Joe Pavelski and Mark Mulder.

Vikings receiver Adam Thielen finished in a tie for fourth place, with Annika Sorenstam.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished ninth. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr came in 21st. Vikings safety Harrison Smith tied for 27th place. Vikings defensive back Patrick Peterson tied for 46th. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes finished 51st. Bills quarterback Josh Allen finished 58th. Titans coach Mike Vrabel tied for 65th.

Coming in dead last was former (and potentially future) NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III.

  1. Like him or not, you’ve got to admit Tony Romo has really stuck the landing on “retirement”. Work 17 days a year and make 17 mil, then win golf tournaments in your spare time.

  2. Only championship he could win! Sure couldnt do it with the over rated Cowboys!!!

  3. Wasn’t Annika Sorenstam like a legit pro female golfer? Why was she in an amateur tournament?

  4. Rodgers might make a living playing golf someday. He seems like the sort of selfish, self-centered “patriot” the LIV Golf League is looking for. It would appeal to his ethically unique sense of personal gain and privilege.

  5. What’s not to like?

    Romo is smart, funny, and a good person.

    He deserves compliments and $.

  6. Why was he asked to hold the potential game winning field goal? That is on the coaching staff for putting him in that position.

    The 53rd player to suit up would have done a better job.

  7. Agree, he’s a very good golfer. As far as broadcasting goes I think he’s taken a step back from a few years ago. He brought insight and energy to the booth when he first started. Now he talks way too much and doesn’t stay focused on the game.
