Tony Romo to Try Qualifying for US Open

ALEDO, Texas (AP) _ Tony Romo’s next pursuit of a championship will be in golf.

And it’s a long shot.

A month after the Dallas Cowboys quarterback retired, Romo is among nearly
9,500 players who signed up for the U.S. Open. He plays an 18-hole local
qualifier Monday at Split Rail Links and Golf Club about 30 minutes west of Fort
Worth.

If he advances, the next step is sectional qualifying on June 5 to get into the
U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin.

This isn’t the first time Romo has tried to qualify. He made it out of local
qualifying in 2010. In a 36-hole sectional qualifier where only two of the 35
players advanced, Romo opened with a 71 and withdrew in the afternoon after two
weather delays.

Orville Moody in 1969 was the last player to go through local qualifying and
win the U.S. Open.
