Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo got a lot of praise for skipping a chance to qualify for the Byron Nelson Golf Tournament because it conflicted with the team's organized team activity workouts.
But Romo was not out of the off season golfing game. He competed in a qualifying tournament for the U.S. Open on Thursday and moved one step closer to making the big tournament.
Romo shot a 69 during the qualifying round, putting him a playoff with four golfers for three spots for the sectional tournament in Houston June 7.
Romo survived the playoff to reach the 36-hole sectional. The good news for Cowboys fans is that it doesn't conflict with OTA workouts that week, which begin on June 8.
Good news for Romo is that if he qualifies for the US Open at Pebble Beach June 14-20 it won't conflict with the Cowboys final mini camp, which is set for June 11-13.
