He’s gonna like this one, Jim!!!
Tony Romo transitioned back into athlete mode Thursday … sinking a 30-foot chip-in for an eagle at a pro tournament — and the shot was EPIC!!
The ex-Dallas Cowboys QB (and Jim Nantz’ NFL game broadcasting partner) hit the links as a sponsor exemption at the Korn Ferry Tour’s Veritex Bank Championship in Arlington, Texas … and it didn’t take long for him to shine.
On his first hole of the day — the Par 5 10th at Texas Rangers Golf Club — Romo knocked his second shot just short of the green, and was looking to chip it close with his 3rd shot to set himself up for a birdie look.
The thing is … Romo hit the chip shot so well — IT ACTUALLY WENT IN!!!
Side angle footage showed just how difficult of a chip it really was … Romo had to navigate a big hill in order to bury the ball in the cup.
Of course, Tony’s a hell of a golfer and this isn’t anything too new for the 41-year-old — so his celebration was muted, with nothing more than a small fist pump and a wave.
Romo — who’s played a handful of times at pro events before — is currently doing well at the event … he’s even on his scorecard through five holes so far.
Only 13 holes left in Round 1 … go get ’em, Tony!
