Former NFL star Tony Romo, whose chances of making a first cut at a PGA Tour event looked promising after his first-round 70, plummeted down the leaderboard with a six-over 78 that left him four-over for the week. "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. He seemed to be settling back to earth with two successive bogeys on his second nine, but rebounded for three birdies on the final five holes to finish in red numbers.

Unai Emery's side head into the game in 4 place after winning three, drawing two and losing one in the league this campaign. But Emery says he's not quite ready to feature against Man Utd on Monday. "He needed to take minutes and confidence".
The 39-year-old Aussie, who took time off after finishing tied for fifth at the Tour Championship in August, goes into the season seeking a first title since 2016, when he won the Honda Classic and the WGC event at Doral.
"Just the scoring back home and in practice sessions have shown that I've done things a little better, so that makes you excited to come out and test your game", Romo said.
Nick Watney was second after a 65. He was joined by Canadian Nick Taylor, who carded a 66, South African Dylan Frittelli who posted a 65 and Americans Adam Long and Cameron Champ, who both shot 68. Landry shot 74 and drop to 5 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. Phil Mickelson also fell below the cutline, despite shooting 69 following a 75 on Thursday. "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. But I felt really solid on the greens, so I'm just going to try and keep that going". "Haven't been able to do two rounds yet, but I think by next spring, you'll see a pretty big leap in the game".
