Tony Romo has withdrawn from a U.S. Open sectional qualifier after it was delayed for the second time due to bad weather.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback, one of 36 players vying for two spots in a 36-hole sectional qualifier at The Club at Carlton Woods, just north of Houston, was four shots behind leader Casey Clendenon midway through the event.
He started his second round with a quadruple bogey and had played three holes when air horns signaled the day's second weather delay. Players were going to resume their unfinished second rounds on Tuesday, but Romo withdrew because the Cowboys return to practice then, and he says his first obligation is to his team.
Romo bounced back from an early triple bogey to shoot a 1-under 71 in his first round.
