Dallas Cowboys Rumors: Tony Romo to give up golf, concentrate on football

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is letting go of his offseason hobby of playing golf to give way on protecting his surgically repaired back.

Romo has acknowledged during a charity appearance Thursday night that he is giving up golf and recreational basketball and soccer this offseason. He added that he is eliminating these activities because of his “love” of football and commitment of having a healthy back.

“Well, I love football,” Romo told reporters at the Dallas Cowboys Women’s Association’s charity fashion show. “I think what you find is that you love the game of football so much that it’s easy to have other things take a back seat.”

Romo loves playing golf and he routinely attempts to play and qualify for the U.S. Open. After two back surgeries in 2013, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback is not allowing himself to be bothered by his golf clubs this summer.

“I love to compete,” he said. “I think anybody who knows me well knows that competition is what I thrive on, regardless of what it is in life. I tell my wife sometimes, as long as I’m able to compete on a daily basis with something, I sleep well at night. I thrive on that.”

Romo has the best year of his career last season in terms of completion at 69.9 percent. He has also 34 touchdowns against nine interceptions. Moreover, he led the Dallas past the Wildcard Round last season.
