The honors just keep coming for Tony Romo.....Oh wait, the football honors haven't been coming as of late, but he did pick up some hardware recently from Golf Digest.

Romo has been ranked the No. 1 amateur golfer among professional athletes. He beat out the likes of people like Craig Hentrich, Jerry Rice, Mark McGwire, Mike Schmidt, Brett Hull, and Pete Sampras. The difference between those guys and Romo is that the Cowboys gunslinger is not retired.

What are your thoughts on this? I'm all for athletes taking the off-season off and playing some golf. Romo is human! But, to be a sub-par handicap you have to practice. How is Romo playing this well if he is not practicing during the season?

Other notables that made the list:

No. 14 John Elway

T-17. Mike Modano

T-20. Dan Marino

T- 35 Michael Jordan

44. Brenden Morrow
