Take that Tiger! Justin Timberlake, Tony Romo break 100 at Torrey Pines
A low-handicapper Wouldn’t break 100 at Torrey Pines South, said Tiger Woods. Well, Tony Romo and Justin Timberlake proved him wrong, shooting rounds of 84 and 98, respectively at the course that will hist next week’s U.S. Open.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and singer Justin Timberlake may not be qualified to play in the U.S. Open, but both proved they could break 100 Friday on Torrey Pines’ South Course.
The pair joined “Today” host Matt Lauer and a regular guy from Omaha, Neb., in a foursome bent on disproving Tiger Woods’ theory that it takes a pro to beat the course.
Romo, who missed qualifying for the U.S. Open this spring, won with a 13-over 84. The beefy quarterback, who boasts a 2.2 handicap index, barely broke a sweat playing the first nine holes in 5-over 40 but slowed as the six-hour round wore on.
“It got really tough to stay sharp,” he said, nodding toward the 18th hole, where he had his only double bogey after hitting into a bunker.
Timberlake, suffering from allergies, seconded Romo, although his game improved over the last four holes with two pars and two bogeys as he went into “Michael Jordan mode.” A 6.0 handicap index, he parred the 18th to finish at 27-over 98.
“It’s just inhuman, how well they strike it,” he said, referring to Woods and his ilk.
Romo’s girlfriend Jessica Simpson was not in attendance and there were no wardrobe malfunctions during Timberlake’s round.
The two were paired with Lauer - who shot an even 100 - and John Atkinson, a medical salesman from Omaha, Neb., who is suffering from inoperable lung cancer. Atkinson was the only one of the foursome to shoot over 100. But Atkinson didn’t seem to mind.
“At some point I just didn’t really care,” said Atkinson - a non-smoker who was hoping to bring more attention to lung cancer. “I just wanted to enjoy it.”
Not a bad performance by either the QB or the singing star. Romo, may in fact become this generation’s John Brodie. And Timberlake, well, I must say that I have a new-found respect for Chris Baldwin’s fawning article on the young star, which can be found at BadGolfer.com.

I'd hardly say that qualifies him as your regular everyday 10 handicapper. (Newsflash, they tend to have beer bellies and work 60-hour weeks).
And Timberlake is a true 6. With tons of time and more than enough means to regularly golf on some of the very best courses in the world. Again, not exactly what Tiger was talking about.
You're only supposed to blog about politics anyways. Next time, stay on subject and tells us more about how you think a real war hero who spent years as a prisoner is a bad guy.
That's your wheelhouse.
Maybe, Romo would have outright won the U.S. Open too if he had qualified.
People dont read Chris's bashing banterings...
it will make your intelligence decrease to his
level. That's what would really mess you up!!
