Tony Romo has had two back surgeries in the past eight months. That's not easy to recover from, and with the Dallas Cowboys putting most of their eggs in the 34-year-old's basket, he decided it was time to make a sacrifice.
Romo revealed to the Dallas Morning News on Tuesday that he hasn't played golf since his first back operation "almost a year and a half" ago. Romo, who boasts a +0.3 handicap and has tried to qualify for the U.S. Open multiple times, says he's giving up the game because he needs to focus on staying healthy. Romo was also part of Golf Digest's U.S. Open Challenge, where he shot 84 at Torrey Pines in 2008.
