A U.S. Open Celeb Foursome: Romo, Lauer, Timberlake and a Cancer Survivor
Tony Romo can't seem to make the cut for the U.S. Open; he's tried for years, and just yesterday shot a 75 at a local qualifier to miss out making the sectionals. Which doesn't bother cancer survivor John Atkinson one danged bit.
Because next month, just a few days before the Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, Atkinson will still get to play with Romo during a celeb event on the very same course. Atkinson won a Golf Digest essay-writing contest, beating out some 56,374 other entries for the chance to walk the course with Romo, Today's Matt Lauer and Justin Timberlake. Among the 100 words in his essay: "Nothing's better than taking your buddies while on chemotherapy!" --Robert Wilonsky
