Tony Romo played in his fourth-ever PGA Tour event this week. The former NFL star hasn't made the cut in any of his events to date, but if he had made the cut this weekend, he would have missed work on Sunday.

Romo participated in the Safeway Open in Napa, California. If he made the cut, his final round would be on Sunday and he wouldn't be able to call Vikings-Bears on CBS, according to the New York Post.

After one round, it appeared that might happen. Romo carded a two-under, 70.

Following the first round, Romo was ahead of golfers like Phil Mickelson. However, he came crashing down to Earth on Friday during his second round.

He carded a six-over, 78 to finish the tournament at four-over and miss the cut.

Romo's chances in the tournament were very slim heading into the weekend. He's a quality golfer, but not on the level of a professional at this point.

Perhaps if he devoted a little more time to golf he'd actually be able to compete in these tournaments.

After missing the cut the cut, Romo will fly to Chicago for Vikings-Bears as scheduled. Kickoff for that game is set for 4:25 p.m. ET and will be nationally televised.
