Golf is more than a post-retirement hobby for former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. He takes it very seriously, competing in PGA Tour events as an amateur and routinely golfing with established pros. In fact, one of his frequent golfing partners, Will Zalatoris, just burst onto the golf scene with a second-place finish at the 2021 Masters. 

Romo isn't at that level yet, but he may be getting there. He teed off at No. 10 at the Veritex Bank Championship on Thursday and wowed the crowd with an eagle on his first hole of the day.
