TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Ten past Champions of the Texas State Open along with celebrity entrants Tony Romo and Johnny Manziel will headline the event starting Tuesday in Tyler.

The Cascades will once again be home to the event. The 10 former champions playing is a record for the event. This will be the third time for Romo and the first time for Manziel.

Round one pairings.

Romo was in East Texas last month competing in a U.S. Amateur qualifying tournament. Romo failed to finish the event which was two rounds in one day. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback said his back felt good following his practice round and hopes this tournament goes smoothly.

”I feel good,” Romo said. “That was difficult that time just traveling in that day. We came in that morning. There was a lot of golf at that time. We needed a little rest but we are rested at this point. My game from the fairway in has gotten to the point where I can compete at this level. If I drive it well I will score well. Hopefully that will take shape this week.”
