Robledo's Round

Posted: Updated:

ERIN, WI - In what he hopes will be the first of many rounds played during a major golf championship, Roman Robledo can look on his first as a learning experience.  The former Harlingen South and University of Houston golfer shot a 6-over par 78 at Erin Hills, Wisconsin for the first round of this year's U.S. Open Golf Championship.  Robledo qualified for the tournament by winning a spot at a Sectional event in Dallas.  He told CHANNEL 5's Joel Villanueva after his round that he won't be changing anything on Friday.  He'll be shifting to a morning tee time after stepping off at mid-afternoon on Thursday.  His pre-match ritual will stay the same, while trying to focus on sharpening his game against the difficult, and first-time, Open course.  The video is reported by CHANNEL 5's Joel Villanueva
