Romo fails in US Open bid

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current CBS lead football analyst Tony Romo is chasing his "other" passion today locally at Split Rail Links and Golf Club.

This was more than a vanity play from Romo; his eagle came on a 611-yard par 5. He failed to take advantage, though, hitting his next tee shot in the water and making a triple bogey.

"It's different", Romo said. "That eagle got it going a little bit". He made it to a 36-hole sectional qualifier in 2010, but after his 71 the first 18 holes was forced to withdraw before finishing because of two rain delays and a conflict with a Cowboys minicamp.

He finished with a 3-over-par 75 on a breezy day at Split Rail Links & Golf Club, but he certainly gained the appreciation of his fellow golfers.

"I was chatting to my buddy last night and he said that he's got a lot of game, hits it good", Day said Tuesday in advance of The Players Championship.

This was the third time Romo has attempted U.S. Open qualifying.

Romo had by far the largest gallery of the day with some fans wearing his No. 9 jersey.

After his round, Romo signed autographs and took some photos.

According to the USGA, this is the 11th time Romo has filed an entry for a U.S. Open qualifier.

Romo is replacing former New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms on the No. 1 broadcasting team at CBS.

"I only really had a couple bad swings today". But that's going to be the same thing for me in broadcasting.

"Most of the people were out there the entire day and rooting you on, and I wanted to give them something to get excited about", Romo said.

"I know I'll probably stink for a while (in the broadcast booth). Hopefully I'll continue to improve at that and hopefully get better and be good".
