Romo, an avid golfer, has cut back significantly on his participation in offseason tournaments. ESPNDallas.com reported Monday that Romo has passed on playing the Azalea Invitational in Charleston, S.C., and the Adams Golf Pro-Scratch Championship in Dallas. Additionally, he won't attempt to qualify for the HP Byron Nelson Championship or the U.S. Open.
Was it a shot at Romo's work ethic? Not likely, but Romo could benefit from removing non-football-related athletic pursuits from his schedule. At the very least, it sends a message to the Cowboys locker room.
