Stewart Cink Wife Diagnosed with Cancer, Taking a Break From Golf

Pro golfer Stewart Cink says his wife Lisa has been his "biggest supporter" since their teenage years.

"It's now time for me to return the favor," Cink adds.

The PGA Tour pro is quitting golf indefinitely to support Lisa, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Cink pulled out of the Wells Fargo Championship this weekend and will remain away from the game for an undetermined length of time as Lisa undergoes treatment. He announced the news — and his intention to stay by Lisa's side — via Twitter.
