Romo grabbed control of the Racine Tri-Course Amateur Championship with an opening round 68 at Racine Country Club, then shot 71 at H.F. Johnson Park Golf Course to grab a five-shot advantage going into the final round. The final round was played on one of Romo’s home courses, Meadowbrook Country Club, where he shot two under to pull away from the field. “It’s starting to come together and it’s feeling more natural now,” Romo said. Romo’s best friend from high school, Nick Sekeres, was on Romo’s bag this weekend. Sekeres, who like Romo lives in the Dallas area, said what was most impressive about Romo’s play was his putting. “All three days, his putting was consistent,” Sekeres said. “He didn’t make a lot of putts, but his speed was good. There were only a few putts on the whole weekend where he was off on speed and put him in a bad spot.” – TO
