Memo to CBS Sports. Tony Romo, your new No. 1 NFL game analyst, admits he'll probably stink on TV this fall.

So CBS will have to be patient with the TV rookie during his first season in the broadcast booth with Jim Nantz.

The former Cowboys quarterback made the admission Monday after he failed to qualify for the U.S. Open golf tournament, according to Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk.

During an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Romo was asked whether golf can fill the competitive void as he replaces Phil Simms on CBS' No. 1 announce team.

"It's different," Romo said. "Competition in itself I enjoy and, for me, just improving and looking at something to get better at. That’s the same thing in broadcasting. I understand I’m coming in without any experience in that world. It’s exciting, it’s a little nerve-wracking, it’s all these things in one. That’s why you love to do things. You’re coming into the unknown and something I have to get better at and I like a challenge.
