Romo Isn't Golfing Much These Days

Tony Romo used to spend his offseasons on the links



    Tony Romo has been heavily criticized since he took over for Drew Bledsoe after halftime of that Monday Night game back in 2006. He’s been unable to escape it, and his other interests--read: competitive golfing--haven’t helped matters.

    The thought, silly as it is--and it IS kind of silly--is that Romo shouldn’t be focusing on playing golf during the few months of free time he has. He should be focusing on football.

    Anyway, whether or not golf was distracting Romo from football (it never was), it’s of no concern anymore. Because Romo isn’t playing much golf these days. He was asked during his football camp in Wisconsin this week how his golf game was holding up.

    Non-existent,” Romo said of his golf game, via ESPN Dallas. “I haven't played in awhile.”

    Of course, Romo is busier these days in general. Aside from trying to lead the Cowboys out of football purgatory (two 8-8 seasons in a row), the guy has a year-old son to take care of.
