Tony Romo, Jordan Spieth to partner
By Todd Archer
Tony Romo has become a fixture at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am through the years, playing with John Daly and Tiger Woods.
This week, the Dallas Cowboys' star quarterback will partner up with Jordan Spieth at the prestigious event.
Spieth, who is from Dallas and played college golf at the University of Texas, 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 friendly rounds in Dallas.
Spieth, who led the Longhorns 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 last month.
