Tony Romo Swing Golf Swing Analysis February 2018

I had a great time playing 3 straight days with Tony as his partner in the Isleworth Invitational, a Pro-am event with players such as John Cook, Nick O’Hern, and many other excellent players including a lot of younger guys working at Isleworth and playing the mini-tours. Tony has made some nice progress with his swing technique over the past year after coming back from multiple back surgeries due to football injuries, even while missing a bunch of playing and practice time with his new position as lead NFL announcer for CBS Sports.

Online Lesson: Tony Romo

By Wayne | Videos: Online Students

This is not a long video for the simple reason that Tony’s swing is improving and he is gaining on the things we have been working on. He tends to push his hands well out away from his body in the takeaway while fanning the face open, which gets the club flatter than the plane at left arm parallel (P3) and leads it to lay off and get a bit stuck in the downswing if he doesn’t rotate fast enough. Tony, like many powerful amateur players, sees a draw ball flight and tends to approach impact from the inside, which is why we have worked on visualizing a straight to left to right ball flight.

Of course, this gives me a great opportunity to watch Tony perform when it counts and it gives Tony a good idea of what his tendencies are when he’s got some heat on him.

Lesson of the Week: Tony Romo Part 4

By Wayne | Videos: Lesson of the Week

A few weeks ago, I met Tony up in New York where we played 18 holes and took some shots of his swing on the course (you can watch that video on the website). Since then Tony had me come down to Dallas where we met and worked at the new Trinity Forest Golf Club, site of next year’s Byron Nelson Classic. Tony was excited about the suggestions I had made after our first encounter (we actually met four years ago but he has been injured pretty much the whole time since then) and had started hitting the ball better.

Swing Analysis: Tony Romo Part 3

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

You may be aware that Tony is a stellar athlete who up to now has played golf strictly in his spare time and as a hobby. Now that he has retired as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys for the less injurious position of NFL analyst he is ready and able to put more work into his golf game and would like to become a serious amateur competitor. I met Tony in January of 2013 at the Isleworth Invitational when I was invited to join his group for a practice round on the back 9 after my 3 playing partners had retired for the day. Upon introducing myself Tony remarked that he had watched the video I had done commenting on Peter Kostis’ television comparison of Tony’s swing with that of Tom Brady.
