Tony Romo makes 2019-20 PGA Tour debut at Safeway Open

Tony Romo in action

But he was more competitive on Thursday at Silverado Resort.

But for Romo, 39, missing the cut wasn't a failure.

"I knew if I could go work on my swing like I did yesterday and come out and feel comfortable like I did today, I'd come out and shoot a low number", DeChambeau said. Romo is tied for 24th entering Friday, which would be good enough to make the cut, which includes the top 65 on the leaderboard. And through nine holes, he was on track to do just that.

Jim Nantz might have a new broadcast partner for Sunday's National Football League on CBS broadcast.

Given minuscule 50,000-1 odds to win the tournament ahead of play beginning on Friday, Romo certainly turned heads with his impressive showing in the first round of the tournament. "He's proven people wrong his whole life".

Since retiring from the NFL, Tony Romo has taken up another sport: Golf.

Romo made five birdies on Thursday but only had three on Friday.

He made just one bogey, at the par-four 13 hole from deep rough off the tee, resuming from a holiday in the Bahamas with his family.

After struggling in the first round of a new season, an optimistic Phil Mickelson expected to bounce back with a round of "6 or 7 under" at the Safeway Open. This is Romo's fourth appearance on the PGA Tour, with him failing to make the cut in his previous three tournaments.

Bryson DeChambeau opened up a two-stroke lead at the Safeway Open after firing an 8-under 64 in the second round, while Tony Romo missed the cut.

"If you are going to go do something, you want to do it well", Romo told reporters. SuperBook USA golf oddsmaker Jeff Sherman responded accordingly, giving Romo astronomical 10,000-to-1 odds of winning the tournament, and the Action Network's Darren Rovell promised to erase himself from Twitter if the former Cowboys quarterback was atop the leader board at the end of play Sunday.
