    Can't find any info on individual scores at the moment.

    But based on what Dolly said, sounds like he did pretty good.

    Did Robert Griffin show up to console him?

    I watched some of the tourney on TV. His team was 29 under par and Tony's game alone counted for 21 under par. If he had been paired with any of the top 10 finishers he would have won. The pro he was paired with finished in a tie for 22nd. One of the co-champion celebrities was paired with the tournament winner, Snedeker (sp).

    In other words, Tony was fantastic.

    You can't say that the way the pro-am tournament is scored. You'd have to compare scorecards to see where Romo helped his team vs. where he wouldn't have helped if paired with another pro. There's a chance that scores would have canceled each other.

    While true, with how poorly Tony's partner scored by himself, it's probably a safe bet that he didn't have Romo picking a lot of his balls up.

    ...it is quite obvious from the score that he wasn't a total waste of time. They were in third place!

    From that you can infer that Tony did his part as the Am on the Pro/Am team. Typically the Pro laments the partner he gets, but I don't think it was the situation in this case.

    It is important to remember the amateur's are handicapped and since Romo is scratch he does not get any strokes. He played very well and definitely was a big reason they were in contention.

    That's right.
    Usually the winning team has an amatuer that has a handicap way higher tan TR's. He had a great week and more importantly, it sounds like it was a good event overall.

    Let's not not spare the thin-skinned haters by gently beating around the bush--we might as well speak the truth:

    Tony utterly dominated. Romo completely kicked .

    Good for Tony! I'm happy for him.
    BTW, I hate Romo-haters.

    Romo played very, very well.

    What I was saying was that you could not extrapolate scores based on comparing the pros scores. One would have to compare Romo's scorecard to other pros to see which holes he would have helped on.

    Had he been paired with a better pro, he would have choked under the pressure.

    Being paired with a bum allowed him to play loose, no pressure.

    ...this seems to be very loosely interpreted.

    What evidence do you have of his partner being a "bum"? Somehow this "failing" QB and "bum" made it to first place then finished in third.

    If I could always have this kind of perfomance from the "bums" on my youth football teams I would be very happy.

    When Tony and Tiger were paired together, Romo shot a better final round than Tiger. That is straight up scoring too.

    do you have a problem?

    I asked a simple question, because I am interested in seeing how well he did.

    For the record, I am not now, nor have I ever been a Tony basher or one of these Anti-Romo posters. I have been a Romosexual since he took over for Bledsoe. However, that Skins game to end the season really was like a huge kick to my manhood, and for the first time, I felt as if I could no longer defend him. Still, he is our QB, and I will continue to root for him.

    Now, enough of the foolishness.

    Cowboys' Tony Romo, Dallas' Jordan Spieth lose lead in final day of Pebble Beach Pro-Am, finish third


    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Tony Romo was doing his post-round interviews Sunday at Pebble Beach Golf Links when Nick Faldo came bounding over from the television tower overlooking the 18th green.

    Faldo put his hand across Romo’s neck and pushed his head up, apparently referencing a tip he had given the Cowboys quarterback.

    “Did it work,” Faldo asked. “See? See?”

    Romo answered, “Did you see 17? Take a peek.”

    Faldo, rushing to get back to the tower before the end of a commercial break replied, “It was on TV live!”

    At No. 17, a famed hole that has ruined as many potential champions as it has crowned, Romo sank a tricky 15-foot putt for a birdie.

    Although their team score of 68 Sunday didn’t reflect it, Spieth and Romo both played well.

    Said Romo: “You’ve got to get it in the hole sometimes, and we just missed our opportunities. … You’ve got to make some putts to go low.”
