Some of those celebrities including other Cowboys greats like Emmitt Smith and DeMarcus Ware, plus Stars legend Mike Modano.

Romo talked about the moment he realized he had a shot at winning.

"It wasn't easy out there. It was cold, a little windy, and then I made birdie on 1, which is huge. You start the day on 6, just getting that momentum just kind of as a catalyst I feel like in some ways to get that emotional boost that lets you know you have a chance," he said.

Professionals also competed in the tournament.

Australian PGA Pro Mark Hensby claimed the pro victory.
