Tony Romo to compete in U.S. Open qualifier on Monday

The recently retired Cowboys QB did not advance to sectional qualifying for the 2017 U.S. Open, missing the cut by six shots.

The newly-minted CBS broadcaster shot bogeys on holes 5, 7, 9 and 11 with a birdie on 10.

This was more than a vanity play from Romo; his eagle came on a 611-yard par 5.

Clearly, Romo remains competitive, as evidenced by his fist-pump after the eagle on No. 14 and his look of dismay when he saw that his tee shot on No. 15 had rolled into the water.

"It was fun to be back out competing", Romo said. A little self-deprecating humor goes a long way. 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. "I'm just starting back up".

Tony Romo's pursuit of a U.S. Open berth won't extend beyond Monday.

That pulled Romo to 1-over on the day, but things fell apart on the next hole. The 37-year-old stuck around after playing to sign autographs and take photos. But that's going to be the same thing for me in broadcasting. "I was chatting to my buddy [Monday] night and he said that [Romo] has got a lot of game, hits it good". I understand that I'm coming in without any experience in that world. I know I'll probably stink for a while [in the broadcast booth]. Then I'm going to go back and be a really good assistant golf club professional back in Burlington, Wisconsin'.

He is looking at possibly playing in the Western Amateur in late July and perhaps the U.S. Amateur in mid-August if they don't conflict with his new job.

The public is welcome.The locals and Dallas Cowboys fans follow Tony Romo after he hit his drive on No. 1.
