Tony Romo Gets PGA Tour Exemption!

Opinion has become divided online, in the case of the PGA Tour providing exemption for NFL great Tony Romo to play in the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. Romo revealed during a press conference that he would be playing in the $3m event, which runs opposite the WGC-Dell Match Play from March 22-25.


Romo stated: “I am grateful to the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship for giving me an incredible opportunity to test my skills against some of the best on tour.” But the news of Romo playing has split social media opinions with many suggesting that this is an unfair play by the PGA, as it takes the spot of a fully-fledged Touring Pro.



Others are backing the PGA Tour’s decision in the matter.


The move is reminiscent of when NBA superstar Steph Curry was exempted into a Tour event last summer.
