Romo doesn’t qualify for golf’s U.S. Open

Cowboys QB Tony Romo failed in his attempt to make the U.S. Open, shooting an 80 in local qualifying at Dallas National Golf Club on Monday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Romo, like many professional athletes, is an accomplished golfer and has played in numerous pro-am tournaments. He will attempt to qualify for the PGA Tour’s HP Byron Nelson Championship today at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club in McKinney, Texas. Romo failed to qualify for last year’s tournament.

Of course, Romo’s golfing ventures are more fuel for detractors who take great delight in the quarterback’s winless NFL playoff record. But none of them have Jessica Simpson as a consolation prize. So Romo has that going for him, which is nice.

UPDATE: The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Romo didn’t make the cut for the Nelson field. Romo had a triple bogey on No. 16, followed by bogeys on Nos. 17 and No. 18, and that kept him from qualifying. Romo finished with a 79.
