Tony Romo won't make U.S. Open run
Romo said he has elected to skip the May 14 local qualifier at Old American Golf Club in The Colony.
According to the USGA’s Web site, Romo was listed in the upcoming field, but the quarterback said the application to play in the event was not made by him.
Romo has attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open numerous times and reached the sectional qualifying in Houston two years ago. He did not make it out of local qualifying last year.
The Cowboys started the supervised offseason program on Monday, however, Romo and a high percentage of teammates had been working out at Valley Ranch on their own for more than a month.
“The workouts have been great,” Romo said. “The intensity and focus have been great to see.”
