Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is among a field of seven golfers who completed a round at The Honors Club in Dallas Thursday, shooting a 2-under 69, which puts him in a four-man playoff for three spots.
If he's among the top three finishers in a 36-hole qualifier on June 7 at The Woodlands, Romo will earn the right to compete in the U.S. Open, the golf season's second major golf tournament, held June 17-20 at Pebble Beach.
Good for him, I say! It's good for people to have passions.

Wouldn't the correct joke be about Tiger Woods? :-)
And kudos to Tony, who must be a USGA member. I think that's a requirement to qualify for the US Open, too. (But USGA membership is open to anybody. I bought a golfing buddy a 1-year membership a few years ago.)
I think a lot of the criticism has to do with the fact that he was drafted too high. When you draft a QB in the first round there is an expectation by both the team and the draftee that he will be leading the team by year two.
