Tony Romo to compete in U.S. Open Local Qualifying Round after AT&T Byron Nelson

Beginning on May 13, Tony Romo will make a run for the U.S. Open as he competes in the 2019 U.S. Open Local Qualifying Round at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas.

While he competed in the Qualifying Round over the past two years but failed to claim a spot in the U.S. Open, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current CBS TV analyst did advance to the Sectional Qualifying Round in 2010 while he still played in the NFL.

Romo will tee off in this year's Qualifying Round at 12:50 p.m. on May 13 alongside Matt Miller and Aaron Guanlao.

However, before the 39-year-old attempts to make his fourth run at the U.S. Open, he will compete in the AT&T Byron Nelson from May 9-12 at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. In February, Romo received a sponsor exemption- for a total of three as an amateur- to play in the event. This will be his third PGA Tour appearance.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback's first two Tour appearances were in the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship in the Dominican Republic over the past two years. He missed the cut in both events.

In the 2019 tournament, Romo finished the first round in last place and shot a second-round 80 to finish at 15 over.
