No US Open homecoming for former Cowboys QB Tony Romo

Doyle BarkerMay 10, 2017

The ball settled three feet from the cup, setting up an eagle that briefly propelled Romo to 1-over in Monday's 18-hole U.S. Open local qualifier at Split Rail Links & Golf Club.

Romo is in the last group at Split Rail Links & Golf Club that is scheduled to tee off at 1:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. ET) on Monday.

It is the first time since 2011 the 37-year-old Romo has attempted to qualify for professional golf's national championship.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback didn't make it through an 18-hole local qualifier for a spot in the U.S. Open next month in Erin Hills, Wisconsin.

Romo finished tied for 40th in the 107-man field.

As far as competitive golf going forward, Romo could attempt to qualify for other USGA events such as the U.S. Amateur and U.S. Mid-Amateur. In 2010, he made it to the sectional round of the qualifying process, but he had to withdraw after an opening-round 71 when the weather forced a delay.

Seven qualifiers will move on to a sectional qualifier. That's why you love to do things.

While he missed his chance this year, Romo sounded like he's content for now to reconnecting with the game. You're coming in to the unknown and it's something I have to get better at. Romo will announce games with long-time CBS commentator Jim Nantz this fall while Simms has been reassigned in the organization. "That eagle got it going a little bit".

"I know I'll probably stink for a while (in the broadcast booth)". There also were Romo signs on fences of homes neighboring the course. Back injuries late in his football-playing career limited his golfing.

How good does Lutterus think Romo could be? "But hopefully I'll continue to improve at that".
