Tony Romo, the QB of my Dallas Cowboys, finished in a 4-way tie for second place this weekend at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, a made-for-TV event full of superstar athletes and celebrities. Romo finished tied for second with John Elway, John Smoltz, and actor Jack Wagner. Another former NFL QB, Billy Joe Tolliver won the event for the third time.
Now, I am glad Romo got his summer of golfing out of the way. He has played in a couple U.S. Open qualifying events, along with a few other tournaments. He did give up on his attempt at the U.S. Open because he had to get back to football.. He also just gets a lot of press coverage because of who he is. But I hope he is ready for the season. He is suppose to be here this Friday, in San Antonio, for the opening of training camp.
I can’t fault Romo for playing golf during his off season, it is his down time. He did seem to put it first above his real day job. But he better be ready for the upcoming season because he will catch a lot of flak for playing so much this summer if he doesn’t. He is a pretty good golfer and has plenty time to play when he retires. I just hope he is focused on football and ready for the upcoming season.
