This question already has an answer here:

I have noticed that some native English speakers do not pronounce the "T" in "won't" in the middle of a sentence. For example:

I won't make you happy

sounds like:

I wo make you happy

Is this correct ?

I am from Montana. As far as I am aware, the T in "won't" is meant to be pronounced.

 The sentence you provided as an example is incorrectly pronounced.
