While Tony Romo waits for his NFL future to sort itself out, the former Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback turned to another of his favorite activities this week - golf. Romo teed it up in the Azalea Invitational, a tournament in Charleston, S.C., in which he has played several times before.

Unfortunately for Romo, things didn't turn out much better on the golf course than they did on the football field last year, when he was sidelined during the preseason by a compression fracture in his back and lost his starting job to rookie Dak Prescott.

In the Azalea, Romo shot 78-77-77--232 (19 over) and missed the 54-hole cut by 11 shots. One of the few people in the field whm he did beat was his father, Ramiro Romo, who shot 23 over.
