Tony Romo Given +400 Odds to Make the Cut at Safeway Open

Tony Romo Given +400 Odds to Make the Cut at Safeway Open

The CBS NFL broadcaster, playing the tournament on a sponsor's exemption, made bogeys on six of his first nine holes.

Romo rolled in 122 feet worth of putts for the day.

Adam Scott and Andrew Landry are tied for the lead at 7-under par.

Nick Watney, who shot a 69 a day earlier, finished Friday one stroke behind DeChambeau for the second straight day with a 65, leaving him in second place at 10 under. I've done some things I shouldn't have.

"If you can do it once, it shows you at least have enough stuff going in the right direction to be able to compete", he said.

Thomas, who closed fast after a shaky start on Thursday, kept up the good work to put himself in contention heading into the weekend of his first start of the season.

Romo is now tied for 24th after shooting a career-best 2-under 70 in the first round of the PGA Tour's Safeway Open in Napa Valley, and if he survives Friday's cut, his employer, CBS, could be without one of the NFL's top TV analysts.

"It's embarrassing to stink", Romo continued. "I've been working for the past two, three years, I mean, since college trying to get my wedging better".

Instead, Romo will take a private jet back to Chicago for Sunday's Vikings-Bears game, a roughly 1,800-mile trip which, according to Prince Jets, can cost from $24,997 to $84,011, depending on the charter package.

When signing his scorecard before the afternoon wave teed off, he was T-20 and sitting pretty, while on Friday he will be teeing off at T-43, as the rest of the field made up ground rather quickly on the fall circuit track in Napa.

This is Romo's fourth PGA Tour event.

DeChambeau missed the cut at the season-opening event at The Greenbrier, didn't play in last weekend's Sanderson Farms Championship and got off to a slow start this week, with an opening-round 68 that left him four shots back.
