PGA Tour golfer Stewart Cink, who won the 2009 British Open and has finished in the top ten in eight other majors, is taking a break from golf. Why? His wife, Lisa, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and he wants to concentrate on her recovery without any distractions.
Tuesday night, Cink released a touching statement, telling his fans that since the age of 15, his wife has been his biggest supporter. He will now "return the favor" - as he puts it.

Props to Cink for recognizing what's important in life. We wish the best to Lisa Cink in her fight.
