NAPA, Calif. – Jim Nantz might have a new broadcast partner for Sunday’s NFL on CBS broadcast. His regular partner, Tony Romo, just might be in California rather than Chicago.

Thursday, Romo – the former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback, carded his best round ever on the PGA TOUR. Playing in the Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa North, Romo recorded five birdies and three bogeys on his way to a 2-under par round of 70. After round one, he’s tied for 28th place.

Should Romo make the cut and qualify for rounds three and four, he’d miss Sunday’s NFL on CBS broadcast of Minnesota vs. Chicago. Should Romo make the cut for the first time in four PGA TOUR events, Boomer Esiason would join Jim Nantz in the broadcast booth.

New for the 2019-20 PGA TOUR Season, the 36-hole cut is the top 65 players and ties.

Adam Scott and Andrew Landry are tied for the lead at 7-under par. Virginia Beach golfer Marc Leishman is even with Romo, tied for 28th.
