Tony Romo Is Trying To Qualify For U.S. Open Golf Tourney
Now that Tony Romo‘s done playing football, he has a lot more time on his hands. More time to spend with his family. More time to take on a career in broadcasting. And, of course, more time to golf.
Romo’s always been an avid golfer. He attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open golf tournament back in 2010, 2011, and 2012. And apparently, he’s ready to give it another shot in 2017, according to former ESPN employee Ed Werder:
Sign he’s really done: Former #Cowboys QB Tony Romo is scheduled to play in a local qualifier for the 2017 US Open on Monday on Aledo, TX

The local qualifier begins on Monday at Split Rail Links & Golf Club in Aledo, Texas. Romo is set to tee off at 1:30 pm. If he advances, he’ll take part in a sectional qualifier on June 10, in an attempt to book his spot among the 156 participants at this year’s U.S. Open.
Romo has never qualified for the final tournament, but in 2010 he made it to the sectional qualifying tournament, where he shot a 69 before being forced to withdraw after weather issues caused the tournament to conflict with his football schedule.
Hopefully he’ll have better luck now that he doesn’t have any training camps to report back to in the summer.
