Tony Romo, Jordan Spieth pair up at Pebble Beach
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – Tony Romo has become a fixture at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am over the years, playing with John Daly and Tiger Woods. This week he will partner up with Dallas’ Jordan Spieth at the prestigious event.
Spieth earned a sponsor’s exemption into the field and will play at least three rounds with Romo.
Romo and Spieth have played competitively together at the Azalea Invitational, an amateur tournament in South Carolina, as well as in friendly rounds in Dallas.
Spieth, who led Texas to a national championship before turning pro, was unable to earn his PGA Tour card through Qualifying School but will play in several PGA Tour events in 2013. He missed the cut at his first event, the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
