Romo Doesn't Quaify for Open, ESPN Questions His Work Ethic (Sigh)
In case you missed the thrilling and breaking news, Tony Romo failed to qualify for the U.S. Open Sectionals yesterday despite wearing a ton of Masters gear.
I might have been hallucinating last night when I heard this, but at some point on "Sportscenter" one of the anchors suggested that by attempting to qualify for the U.S. Open, "experts" think Romo might not be completely committed.
Let me be the first to say, what a extremely large crock of Grandma's homemade shit is that. Romo has tried to qualify for the Open like five times and since he's "famous" he is now jeopardizing his team? You know, they're probably right though, Romo is the only quarterback playing golf in the off-season.
He did shoot a 75 despite making a double-bogey on his first hole, missing Sectionals by four shots. That is fairly impressive considering I played in a Byron Nelson Qualifier with him last year (he just has no discipline) and he shot 79.
Anyway, I hate to call out ESPN on accusing someone of golfing during a work week, because at Bristol, golfing isn't even a recreational option.
