The Woodlands, TX - Tony Romo's longshot bid to qualify for the U.S. Open ended Monday afternoon due to a weather delay.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback shot a first-round 71 at the U.S. Open sectional qualifier at the Club at Carlton Woods. That was four shots behind leader Casey Clendenon. Romo then struggled to a quadruple-bogey eight on the first hole of his second round, bogeyed the second and then had a triple-bogey at No. 3.

The event was then delayed a second time due to bad weather, ultimately ending Romo's day since he has to attend an event with the Cowboys on Tuesday. The other players were due to finish the second round on Tuesday.

Romo was seven-over-par and would have needed a miracle run to be among the top two qualifiers in the 36-man field.

Craig Kanada, Roland Thatcher and A.J. Elgert each carded a four-under 68 in the first round. Steve Elkington, the 1995 PGA Championship winner, was minus- two after one round.
