Romo is now scheduled to call the Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game on Sunday.

Romo's 2-under round on Thursday beat the likes of Justin Thomas and Phil Mickelson and pushed CBS to confirm back-up plans should its star National Football League analyst make the cut at the Safeway and miss Sunday's Vikings at Bears game. "I was able to control my line, control my speed and have a couple of them drop in".

Romo seemed to be headed to his usual place at the bottom of the leader board after consecutive bogeys at Nos.

Romo, 39, won each of the past two American Century Championship celebrity tournaments in Stateline, Nev., to highlight an impressive amateur golfing resume.

"For me, it's the closest I've gotten so far to being able to compete", he said.

The Queenslander made putts from everywhere, notably a 10-metre bomb on the 14 hole and then another from even longer range for eagle on the par-five fifth, having started on the back nine. Watney needed just 22 putts to complete his round and stay within range of DeChambeau.

Justin Thomas carded an 8-under 64 to be among five players tied for third at 9 under. The network told Marchand it has a backup analyst ready to fill in for Romo if necessary, but it wouldn't reveal who that person is. Defending champion Kevin Tway bogeyed the final hole for a 72 to miss the cut by a stroke.

Phil Mickelson shot 69 but was doomed by an opening 75 that included a quadruple-bogey.

"Every time I play in one of these events, get lucky enough to get an exemption, you kind of get a chance to see what you're not good at, and very apparent was putting over the past year or so", Romo told SiriusXM. "I feel like I've had points like this in my career before - most obvious to me was in 2012, where I played great all year and didn't win. I stunk a lot, so (I'm) just trying to continue to improve and get better", he said.
