Romo posted a seven-over 79 on Thursday at the PGA Tour's Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship, a round that left him in dead last place when he walked off the course.

Paul Dunne fired a six-under 66 to sit in a three-way share of the lead after the opening round of the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.

"I got comfortable and the last 10 holes or so, hit some good shots", he said after the round.

He said he benefitted some from an early start, with the wind picking up in the afternoon. World number 59 Im Sung-jae is the top-ranked player in the field, the Korean being ranked 72nd at the time the Match Play line-up was decided but climbing to his current position after finishing fourth in last week's Valspar Championship.

Romo, who advanced past the preliminary stages of Web.com Tour qualifying school but failed to move past the first stage, bogeyed three of his first four holes and made a triple-bogey 7 on the 8th hole after losing his tee ball. Romo, who has unsuccessfully attempted to qualify for the US Open on three occasions, is playing in the Dominican Republic on a sponsor's exemption for the second year running.

Romo was unable to convert a birdie chance at the last. "Additionally, the Rules of Amateur Status prohibit an amateur golfer from being part of such promotions only when he or she has "golf skill.' In the case of Tony Romo, while he plays at a high level, he is not considered to have 'golf skill" as they are defined in the rules".

"But sometimes the score doesn't show that so there's disappointment with that I feel like".
