Jason Witten, Miles Austin join Tony Romo in golf tourney
By Calvin Watkins
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten and wide receiver Miles Austin were added to the player list for the American Century Golf Championship. Of course, quarterback Tony Romo will be attendance for the event which takes place at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course on July 20-22.
Romo is a 5-2 favorite of the event, which has a $600,000 purse. Rick Rhoden, at 4-1 odds, has won the tournament eight times.
"Tony Romo is a talented golfer and his focus should be stronger than ever this year with the new wife and baby
providing that calming influence," Harrah’s Sportsbook Director Steve Schorr in a statement. “He’s been knocking on the
door since he started playing here in 2007, and he’s probably ready now to kick it in."
