Tony Romo failed to qualify for the 2017 U.S. Open after shooting a three-over 75 at Split Rail Links & Golf Club.

Romo finished tied for 40th in the field of 117 players, six strokes out of a playoff for one of the seven spots to qualify for the sectionals and two alternate spots.

"It's been awhile since I felt the feeling from the competitive aspect in the golf world, so it's been good," Romo said. "I'm just starting back up and playing a little bit here in the last two months, and there's some good signs. I actually hit the ball pretty well today in tough conditions."
