TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - It was round two of the Texas State Open today the Cascades, a tournament that began with a total of 156 players from all over, but mostly of course from Texas, including the one and only former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Now, before the tournament began, we asked his thoughts on how to make it into contention. He broke it down for us.

He said, “Golf is interesting because you’re going to hit a lot of average shots, but the difference is the dispersion between the good shots and the bad shots. You know, if you’re aiming here, and it’s perfect, good, right, but you don’t hit those every time. The ones that are bad, do they go right here, right here or do they go there? It’s the same in putting, and once you start to get that feeling and you get going, then all of a sudden things connect and you start to gain confidence and then you got to attack and get in contention.”

Romo would have a tough start in the tournament, shooting five over in round one on Tuesday. He would need to finish even overall Wednesday in order to make the cut Thursday. And despite shooting a good round this afternoon, including some clutch putting from four feet out on the 16th to sink it, it would not be enough. Romo would finish with an overall plus six, ending his go at tournament champion. Rest assured that he will be back next year for another go.

Round three of the tournament continues Thursday.
