Tony Romo misses the cut, won't advance in U.S. Open qualifying


Tony Romo can get a head start working on his broadcasting chops after failing to advance past U.S. Open local qualifying.

Retired Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's bid to reach the U.S. Open golf championship ended in a local qualifier on Monday outside Dallas in Aledo, Texas. Romo followed his 370-yard drive with a 225-yard iron shot that stopped within a couple feet of the hole and would tap-in for eagle, much to the delight of the crowd.

"It was fun to be back out competing", Romo said. I think I was about one over through 14 or 15, then I had the bad hole. Rain delays and a Cowboys mini-camp conflict forced him to withdraw from the rest of the sectional.

Even so, Day remained impressed by what he had heard about Romo's round.

He played in high school and tried to qualify for the U.S. Open nearly every year between 2003 and 2011.


Before the round, the Texas Golf Association tweeted a photo and said that a gallery of 200 was on hand to watch Romo attempt to qualify.

But like it was during his days as the Cowboys' quarterback, his work with CBS will take precedence. Competition in itself I enjoy and, for me, just improving and looking at something to get better at.

"As a pro you can see who can really hit the ball and who can't, and he strikes it", said Lutterus, who shot a 3-under 69 and earned the second alternate spot in a playoff.

"That's the same thing in broadcasting". It's exciting. It's a little nerve-wracking. "I was chatting to my buddy [Monday] night and he said that [Romo] has got a lot of game, hits it good". I know I'll probably stink for a while. "Now, I've never had the opportunity to play as much as I will be able to hopefully going forward".
