THE WOODLANDS, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo has withdrawn from a U.S.
Open sectional qualifier after it was delayed for the second time
due to bad weather.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback, one of 36 players vying for two
spots in a 36-hole sectional qualifier at The Club at Carlton
Woods, just north of Houston, was four shots behind leader Casey
Clendenon midway through the event.
He started his second round with a quadruple bogey and had
played three holes when air horns signaled the day's second weather
delay. Players were going to resume their unfinished second rounds
on Tuesday, but Romo withdrew because the Cowboys return to
practice then, and he says his first obligation is to his team.
Romo bounced back from an early triple bogey to shoot a 1-under
71 in his first round.
