Eduardo Romero is expected to tee off at at 8:17 a.m. Thursday at the 2009 U.S. Open, which is being played at
Well, Romero won the 2008 SAS Championship, a Champions Tour event held annually in
I covered the SAS tournament at Prestonwood Country Club for The Associated Press, and I had a chance to meet Romero, as well as a few other Champions Tour players: Tom Kite, Fred Funk, Bernhard Langer, Jay Haas, Bruce Fleisher. I followed Romero on the final day of the tournament as he carded seven birdies en route to a three-shot victory over Kite.

Since then, he's won once - the Toshiba Classic in March.
