Tony Romo Gives Up Golf To Save His Back


Tony Tomo has done the unimaginable for the sake of Dallas Cowboys fans.

Despite being good enough to win amateur tournaments and coming close to qualifying for the U.S. Open, Romo says that his offseason back surgeries the last two years have caused him to give up on the sport of golf.  

It’s been awhile,” Romo told the Dallas Morning News of his golf hiatus. “Almost a year and a half.”

Romo said he doesn’t view giving up golf as a sacrifice, but something he needs to do to make the Cowboys the best they can be.

“You’ve got to get yourself healthy then figure out where you’re at and go from there for everything,’’ Romo said. “It’s not just golf. It’s a way you live life. I don’t think about it as [giving up] golf. It’s just life. You want to give yourself the best chance to succeed on the football field.”
