Former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had his career cut a little short due to back injuries. He is still dealing with those issues today. During Tuesday's Match Play Championship in Wisconsin, he dropped down on all fours and stretched his back.
Romo apparently couldn't wait for his opponent, Sam Cianciolo, to finish putting, but he did do his stretching behind Cianciolo. So Romo isn't the reason he missed his putt.
Despite Tony Romo’s back acting up, he wins this hole when Sam Cianciolo can’t make this par putt to halve the hole. Romo 1-up thru 14 per live scoring. @WSGAGolf #StateMatchPlay @Wisdotgolf pic.twitter.com/5Pv1jHDIW8

After his day on the course Romo was asked about his back, via Larry Brown Sports:
After the match, Romo was asked by WisDotGolf’s Rob Hernandez about how he deals with back pain.
“My back, it definitely pops up more often than I’d like,” Romo said. “But I played 36 holes yesterday. I do this whole routine beforehand. I can’t just show up and play.”
We all know about Romo's back issues, but dropping down on the course in the middle of a putt is funny. I know it sucks for him, but that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyed by everyone else.
