Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo failed to advance to the second stage of qualifying for the U.S. Open after shooting a 3-over par 75 Monday at the Split Rail Links and Golf Club in Aledo, Texas.

Seven players made it through local qualifying at the club with the cut line falling at a 3-under par 69.

Romo eagled the par 5 15h hole to move back to 1-over par for his round after a front nine 39. However, he followed it up with a triple bogey on the 16th hole to seal his fate.

Romo finished in a 15-way tie for 40th in the qualifier out of 107 players that finished the round.

Romo advanced to sectional qualifying in 2010, but withdrew from the event due to conflicts with practices with the Cowboys. He was also an alternate for sectional qualifying in 2005.

The 2017 U.S. Open will be played at Erin Hills in Erin, Wis. June 15-18.

    Don’t worried Tony. Dak would fail also.

    An eagle followed by a triple bogie – that’s kind of how he played quarterback

    A 75is a very respectable score on a championship course. But the guys on tour are ridiculously good. He is nowhere near their level.

    He Choked!

    For a guy that has spent most of his life playing football, not golf, to even be able to play in a qualifying round for the US Open is extremely impressive.

    Now sign ’em to the Mav’s.

    Friggin’ joke. And I’ll bet Cutler is far superior in the booth.

    Must have thought it was a playoff game in his mind, and promptly choked.

    Eagle on the 15th hole and double bogey on the 16th…choking at the finish just like in football.
    Gentlemen of the PGA—meet Tony Romo.

    He didn’t get injured! Good job Tony.

    Are you going to tell us about it every time he doesn’t qualify? Which will be every time he tries – at least for now.
    Why not try waiting until he actually makes it to the show?

    I wonder what his score would had been if he was playing from the men’s tees.

    For someone who is not a Golfer that’s outstanding.. 107 guys, they’ve been golfing every day of their lives and a former QB tied for 40. That’s good if you ask me..
