Tony Romo: Cowboys QB Comes Up Short at the American Century Championship Again
Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo just missed winning the American Century Championship on Sunday.
The celebrity golf tournament that is annually held in Lake Tahoe Nevada brings out the competitiveness of big names in movies and sports.
Names such as Michael Jordan, Jerome Bettis, Charles Barkley, Wayne Gretzky and Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are just a few names that have competed in the event.
It came down to the very end and Romo was unable to catch actor Jack Wagner. The only non-athlete to win the event in the 22 year history of the event.
Wagner drilled a 10-foot birdie on the 17th hole and Romo couldn't catch up. So once again the critics can point to the lack of clutch ability when it counts. Remember the famous fumbled snap against the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs? Or how about the poor performance against the Minnesota Vikings in the 2010 playoffs?
While this isn't nearly the same stage, it's another failure in the fourth quarter so to speak. Yet after the event, Romo wasn't phased by his close loss:
Six birdies, no bogeys. That's a good round of golf for me.
He just missed out on a $125,000 paycheck that is awarded to the winner...something Romo could of used after footing the bill for his extravagant wedding held in Dallas last month.
As the NFL lockout finally looks to be coming to a close, this is one of the last leisure weekends for Romo. Starting at the end of this month (let's hope), it's back to business.
Romo will be coming off a season that was a major disappointment. He only played in six games and the Cowboys won a grand total of one game. He put up 1,605 yards with 11 TDs and seven INTs.
The pressure is on as the 31-year old continues to age before our eyes. The window of opportunity is closing and Romo needs to step up before he is relegated to celebrity golf tournaments as his only form of competition.
