Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo won't be playing golf in the 2010 U.S. Open. Romo withdrew from the sectional qualifying tournament in The Woodlands on Monday afternoon, shortly into his second round.
The tournament was delayed by rain in the morning, and a second weather delay occurred in the afternoon. That guaranteed the finish would carry over until Tuesday, when the Cowboys go back to work. So Romo decided to withdraw, saying he wouldn't be able to play on Tuesday due to team commitments.
The fact that he started his second round with a quadruple-bogey had nothing to do with his decision, right? Yeah, that's the ticket.
Actually, Romo played quite well in the morning 18, although he had a triple-bogey 8 during that round. But he recovered to shoot 71, making no other bogeys and recording four birdies.
Alas, that quad got his second round off to a terrible start. Romo completed only three holes when the second weather delay was called.
