It will be difficult for Tony Romo to beat professional golfers at the AT & T Byron Nelson Clbadic this weekend, but he managed to get the crowd cheered on the seventh hole when he faced the eagle.
Romo started on Thursday with a birdie on the opening hole and then prepared for the 66-foot eagle on the seventh hole of par 5 for 544 yards.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, who played in the tournament with an amateur sponsor exemption, ended the day with two double bogeys and four bogeys to shoot at 76.
"A couple of exit shots really cost me just because they are penal in those areas. You can not lose them there, "Romo said after the first round. "As I said, the separation between these guys is the ability to do it for long periods of time, consistency."
