Tony Romo is, by most standards, a really good golfer. Golf Digest once ranked him the best golfer among professional athletes and pegged his handicap at a +3.3, which isn't far from most professional golfers.
 
But a bad back means Romo hasn't been playing as much in recent years, and that's clearly having some negative repercussions on his golf game. During an appearance on “Jim Rome On Showtime” on Wednesday, reigning Masters champ and Dallas native Jordan Spieth fired a friendly taunt Romo's way.
 
“The good news is he doesn't swallow his pride and take a lot of strokes. He likes to play maybe like 2 or 3 a side, which means I'm usually on the winning end of that one.”
 
Then Rome asked Spieth how much money he's won from Romo during their time playing together.
 
“I don't know. I can't even count that high. He's a good friend and a great competitor so we have fun out there.”

Romo must be a super naturally talented athlete - I can't imagine many people being able to get to a +3.3 without it being their number one sport!

He may be a better golfer than he is a quarterback!

The dude is an athlete. Easily a top 6 qb who gets a bad rap just because he plays for the cowboys. People who don't really know football talk about him not being clutch but he is one of the best 4th quarter qb's in football. Hopefully he gets serious about golf when his nfl career is over. His back allowing of course.
