Tony Romo Is Attempting To Qualify For Golf’s U.S. Open, So Expect Him Hurt Any Day Now

by 11 months ago

You all know by now that Tony Romo has retired from the NFL and is headed for the TV broadcasting booth with CBS, replacing longtime analyst Phil Simms. Apparently, life as an NFL commentator isn’t enough to keep Tony Romo busy because he’s attempting to qualify for golf‘s U.S. Open.

Tony’s quest to make the U.S. Open begins with an 18-hole qualifier at Split Rail Links and Golf Club, a course just outside of Fort Worth, Texas. After that, the sectional qualifier begins on June 5th, and there are 9,500 players who will be attempting to qualify for the U.S. Open. The competition will be stiff. However, I’d be willing to wager that none of the other qualifiers are as accustomed to playing under pressure as Tony Romo is.

According to Larry Brown Sports, this isn’t the first time Tony Romo’s attempted to make the prestigious U.S. Open. He did so back in 2010 and managed to reach the sectionals before withdrawing after multiple weather delays. In those rounds, Tony did manage to fire off a pair of 71’s on the course.

Can Tony actually pull this off and earn a spot at the U.S. Open? Actually, it’s not the least probable thing in the world. In fact, I’d say it’s about as likely as a reality TV show host going on to become the President of the United States of America.

Here’s a look at Tony Romo’s golf swing, in case you’re curious:
