Tony Romo and the Importance of a Growth Mindset
Tony Romo made his PGA Tour debut over the weekend at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship. Shooting +10, 82 and +5, 77, Romo failed to make the cut, finishing last in the 132-man field with +15, 159.
Romo gained entry to the event with a sponsor’s exemption, much to the chagrin of many pundits that felt the space could have been better used on a more accomplished amateur.
After ending a 14-year career quarterbacking the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, Romo retired in 2016 following a pre-season back injury.
Romo doesn’t seem to be too rattled by the poor showing. "I kind of have an idea of where I really need to put my time in, as far as to get better and scoring,'' Romo told ESPN. "I'm hitting the ball fine. You just have to score.”
Going into the weekend, the odds of Romo making the cut were low; however, the odds of an undrafted quarterback from Eastern Illinois University becoming a NFL starter were also pretty low, but that didn’t stop Romo from earning a spot in four Pro Bowls.
