If at first you don’t succeed. . . .

Tony Romo again attempted to qualify for the U.S. Open, competing in a local qualifier in Gunter, Texas. Eight players qualified for the sectional out of a field of 132 at The Bridges Golf Club.

Romo shot a 3-over 75, coming up two strokes short of qualifying for the playoff for the final spot that advanced to the sectional.

Bo Van Pelt won the local qualifier with a 4-under 68.

Romo advanced to sectional qualifying in 2010, the only time he has gotten past the local qualifier.

The former Cowboys quarterback turned CBS analyst finished in last place at the 2021 Veritex Bank Championship last month at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington, Texas. He missed the Korn Ferry Tour cut by 17 shots with an 11-over 153.

  1. Compared to the average golfer, Romo is a level above.

    Compared to actual pro golfers, he is not quite up to par. Those guys ARE good.

  2. A 75 won’t cut it. Tony needs to shoot at least in the high to mid 60’s to make the tourney and have a chance to win.

  3. Romo is like 90% of all golfers with a low handicap; he thinks he’s better than he is, and that includes me

    I’d say that I could beat him, but actually I would crush him.———————————————————————————————— The problem is, you have to play the ball “down”, extremely narrow fairways, no bumping, no intermediate rough just fairway and 6-8 inches of rough, and no “gimmees.” No carts, you have to walk. Have you ever played a course set up IAW with USGA requirements for U.S. Open competition? Believe me, it’s not like your Sunday morning round of golf with your buddies.
