Tony Romo To Take Another Swing At The US Open
The recently retired Tony Romo plans to attempt to qualify for the 2017 US Open.
The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback is a great golfer and has tried to qualify for the open USGA event before, and he now plans to give it another shot now that he’s no longer playing football.
Ed Werder, who was recently let go by ESPN, broke the news on Wednesday announcing that Romo will be playing in a qualifying event in Aledo, Texas beginning next Monday.
Romo previously tried to qualify for the US Open tournament in 2010, 2011 and 2012 but stepped away from his side sport in 2013 after undergoing back surgery.
Last month, Romo played in the Azalea Invitational in Charleston, South Carolina. He broke 80 in each of his three rounds recording a 78-77-77, but missed the 54-hole cut, according to Sporting News. A few days afterwards he announced he would be joining the CBS NFL broadcast team for the 2017 season.
The Dallas Cowboys star has proved his prowess on the golf course before, playing in several Pro-Am tournaments over there years. Surely his fans would love to see him succeed now that he’s stepped away from his first sport.
