PGA Tour Star Announces He's Quitting Golf After Wife's Cancer Diagnosis

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.
