It's been a dream of Tony Romo's for quite some time now, and also a hot topic among Dallas Cowboys fans who believe their quarterback should be practicing football year-around.
Romo is trying, once again, to qualify for the U.S. Open and will play in a local qualifier for the tournament on May 14 at Old American Golf Club in The Colony. The U.S. Open is scheduled for June 14-17 at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Romo, who was paired with Tiger Woods at a pro-am recently, didn't get past the local qualifier last year but did advance to the sectional qualifer two years ago.
As an avid golfer, Romo is constantly trying to improve his game, which is a bit frustrating to many Cowboys fans. A lot of folks believe that since Romo has never won a Super Bowl, he should dedicate his entire life to football.
At times on The Ticket, they have joked sarcastically that Romo should be spending his entire off-season throwing football through tires in his backyard, not working on his golf game. Fact of the matter is, everyone needs some off time from their careers, and what better way to spend your off time than by trying to play in the U.S. Open? It'll probably never happen, but best of luck to Tony.
