    Over John Elway’s 16-year career with the Denver Broncos, he was best known for leading his team to incredible comebacks.

    But the Pro Football Hall of Famer has nothing on Steve Jones, the former University of Colorado golfer and 1996 United States Open champion who has, in his estimation, lost at least a third of his professional career to assorted injuries.

    In the last seven months, Jones has been inducted into CU’s Athletic Hall of Fame (in its 2012 class), and in April he became the 44th person associated with the Buffaloes to receive the state’s highest sports honor, induction into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.

    But his path to induction certainly wasn’t easy.
