Tony Romo will make his Korn Ferry Tour debut after accepting a sponsor's invite into the Veritex Bank Championship held in Arlington, Texas, in April, the Tour announced.

"I am very excited about the opportunity to play at the Veritex Bank Championship against the future PGA Tour stars," Romo said. “Playing in the shadows of AT&T Stadium and having the tournament in my own back yard will be great. I have been working hard on my game and hope to make a little noise during the championship.”

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback will compete as an amateur in his first start on the development tour. The tournament runs from April 16-19.

Romo previously played in four events on the PGA Tour but missed the cut each time. He flirted with making the cut at the 2019 Safeway Open after shooting 70 in Round 1.

The 39-year-old is a regular at the PGA Tour's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He and teammate Jim Furyk missed the cut at the 2020 edition.
