Jordan Spieth has pulled in plenty of money during his brief professional career, but it always helps to have a few additional revenue streams. He apparently has found that by taking some money off of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo on the golf course.
Spieth is from Dallas and a fan of the local sports teams. He says he has played golf with Romo, who is also an outstanding golfer and nearly turned pro in that sport before deciding on a professional football career. From the sounds of things, Spieth comes out on top because Romo is too prideful to take too much in the form of a handicap.

“The good news is he doesn’t swallow his pride and take a lot of strokes,” Spieth said of his games with Romo during an interview on “Jim Rome on Showtime,” Eye on Football says. “He likes to play maybe like 2 or 3 a side, which means I’m usually on the winning end of that one.”
Rome followed up by asking how much money he’s taken off Romo.
“Ha ha. Oh man. I don’t know. I can’t even count that high,” Spieth said jokingly. “He’s a good friend and a great competitor so we have fun out there.”
