I mean, why not, there are so many bad commentators out there it would at least be worth a shot.

Commentators are usually hired because of their voice, ability to think on their feet, initiate and keep conversations going.  Analysts are the experts, the ex-athletes or coaches, a good voice is preferable, the rest of their job is taught to them and practiced.  In terms of the quality of golf commentators, I doubt it's a field that attracts the best as there is likely more money and opportunity in other sports given the number of games and teams.  

Romo could be a 3rd guy, he's not a commentator and his analyst skills are best suited for football, though he might be a suitable analyst for an amateur tournament or web.com

God no.

I don't get the Romo love.  I like that he calls some of the plays ahead of time, but his near orgasmic voice "Here we gooooo Jimmmm!!!!!" is as annoying AF.
I dunno, I kinda like orgasms.

Listening to other guys' orgasms?
The joke.  You missed it.

I don't watch football, so I have never heard him call anything, I just know how bad the commentators and analysts are in golf. They don't know how to get out of the way of their own voices, let alone the use of proper drama and context.

I think the idea is right in that you need somebody like Romo but who has competed on a higher level in golf. A zinger is just not a good choice. I feel like he was the only guy who raised his hand when they asked who wanted to do it. Get a guy with some recent PGA experience who is well informed and calls the action in an intelligent and passionate fashion.

What has someone who has “been there” (like Faldo or Azinger) ever said that has excited you during a broadcast?! Haha.

I mentioned Romo as a 3rd voice, but I’d take him over any golf analyst currently on the big networks. I’ve heard enough of the experienced guys - they’re boring. Who knows...Romo may have a golf voice that surprisingly reaches us, and that may outweigh the strengths of an guy who has Tour experience on his side.

The best choice, of course, is not available...yet.. Tiger Woods is the greatest analyst of any sport I’ve ever heard. His peak was just higher than them all. Those few holes he called on tv a couple of years ago surprised the crap out me.

I admit there are folks calling golf I'd prefer out of the booth if Romo was the replacement.
