No US Open homecoming for former Cowboys QB Tony Romo

No US Open homecoming for former Cowboys QB Tony Romo

CBS Sports boss Sean McManus predicted Romo will quickly become a "must-listen": "He brings a fresh and insightful perspective to our viewers having just stepped off the field". The U.S. Open will be held next month in Erin Hills, Wisconsin. He's done it before, and while he hasn't yet qualified, he's gotten pretty close.

Think this has anything to do with Romo's US Open qualifying round today?

Romo shot a three-over-par 75 and finished in 40th place out of 117 competitors in the local qualifier, just six shots out of a playoff for the seventh and final spot in the sectional qualifying.

"When you're playing against great players, you shouldn't have four (three-putts) in four rounds, so four in one round pretty much ends your day", Romo said.

In previous years this had been widely seen as a show of strength against Beijing over competing claims in the South China Sea. It's a privilege for US forces to train with the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Nicholson added.

Major league baseball pitcher turned pro golfer Rick Rhoden and Tiger Woods both said they hope Romo makes it into the U.S. Open.

It is the first time since 2011 the 37-year-old Romo has attempted to qualify for professional golf's national championship.

"I understand I'm coming in without any experience in that world", Romo told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He shot a 71 in the first round of the 36-hole sectional qualifier, but he started his second round eight over through three holes. That's why you love to do things. "That eagle got it going a little bit". You're coming in to the unknown and it's something I have to get better at. He seemed genuinely touched that fans would take five hours out of their day to watch him play golf. I like a challenge. I know I'll probably stink for a while [in the broadcast booth]. "Now, I've never had the opportunity to play as much as I will be able to hopefully going forward".
