The Dallas Cowboys quarterback -- the runner-up in this event in 2009, '10 and '11 -- finished fifth this year.

Romo can at least take solace in finishing ahead of former "Melrose Place" star Jack Wagner, who placed eighth after edging Romo for the title last July. The winner was former NHL star Dan Quinn, who had 66 points to Romo's 54.

Romo had three birdies Sunday, but he buried himself with double bogeys on Nos. 9 and 18. Cowboys teammates Miles Austin and Jason Witten finished 68th and 73rd, respectively.

The purse was $600,000, or 5.2 percent of Romo's $11.5 million Cowboys signing bonus. Tony Romo lost this battle, but he's still winning the war.
