Romo's US Open Bid Off To Slow Start




    Tony Romo’s bid to qualify for the US Open is off to a slow start today at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club in McKinney.

    According to reports, Romo is faring poorly under the windy conditions at Stonebridge, starting the day with back to back bogeys. He also bogeyed the fifth before shooting his first birdie of the day on the eighth. He is currently four over, going into the back nine of his first day.

    Romo made it to the sectional qualifier last year, but his commitment to the Cowboys’ offseason workout program, paired with a number of weather delays, led to the 29-year-old bowing out early.

    This season, what with the lockout, there is no official offseason workout program in place. Rather, player-organized workouts began last week, with Romo among the veterans leading the sessions.

    If Romo were to advance (which is looking kind of doubtful at this point), he would go on to the sectional qualifier at the Dallas Athletic Club, beginning on June 6. He has made it clear in the past that offseason workouts take precedence over golf.
