Tony Romo Is Co-Favorite For American Century Championship

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is known not only for his quarterback skills (and his celebrity girlfriends) but also for his golfing ability. Romo is one of the best golfers in the NFL and he'll get a chance to prove that against other players and celebrities in the American Century Championship on July 15-17.

Romo and former MLB pitcher Rick Rhoden are co-favorites at 5/2 following by former NFL QB Billy Joe Tolliver at 4/1. The director of Harrah's and Harveys Sportsbook says, "It's clear that he wants to win this tournament." Romo finished third in 2008 and second in 2009 and 2010 so he's working his way to a title.

A number of former NFL QBs are expected to do well including Chris Chandler, Mark Rypier, John Elway and Trent Dilfer who are all 12/1 favorites.
