Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo has finished the first eighteen holes in his bid to qualify for the 2010 US Open with a one-under 71, his work cut out for him in the next eighteen, which are beginning shortly in an attempt to get them in before sundown. Romo made par on the first three holes before running himself into some trouble on the fourth. After sailing the drive, it took the Cowboys quarterback three shots to get back on the fairway. He triple bogeyed the hole, and stood at three-under going into the fifth. Romo recovered to birdie the fifth, after which a two-hour rain delay sent the players ducking for cover in the clubhouse. Finally, the players returned and Romo made par on the sixth and seventh, and birdied the eighth. He made par on the ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth. Romo missed an eagle on the thirteenth but sunk a ten-foot birdie putt to go to even on the day. He went one-under with a birdie on the fourteenth, and remained there by making par on fifteen. He remains at one-under (71) as of now, after making par on the final three holes. The leader currently sits at 67, and there are only two spots available.
