Bills quarterback Trent Edwards isn't getting much golf in for the next month, with the team in the midst of spring practices (we try to use the term organized team activities as little as possible). However, Edwards did get in some competitive rounds last week at Drew Brees' charity tournament in San Diego, called the Cox Celebrity Championship. Edwards finished tied for 24th out of 56 with rounds of 82-75. ... In the celebrity-amateur first round, Edwards had 70. ... Bills great Andre Reed shot 82-88 to finish 44th. Actor Ray Romano, subject of instructional guru Hank Haney's Haney Project on the Golf Channel, finished 51st with 93-92. ... Actor Jack Wagner won with 67-73. Marshall Faulk was the top NFLer, finishing sixth.
While we're on the golf subject, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will play on June 7 in the final round of qualifying for the U.S. Open. Romo has taken some heat on Dallas talk shows for supposedly playing too much golf in his bid to tee it up with the PGA Tour stars.
That prompted the following line from Golf.com columnist Alan Shipnuck: "It's a sad day when a guy can get criticized for shagging buxom starlets and playing too much golf. Isn't that the definition of the American dream?"
Shipnuck is a regular on Golf.com's Monday PGA Tour Confidential roundtable discussion, which is always a good read.
