Stewart Cink is back playing on the PGA Tour this week to help get "pieces of normal" back in his life while his wife, Lisa, battles breast cancer.
The 2009 British Open winner announced earlier this month that he would be leaving the tour to help his wife. But according to GolfWeek, Lisa has "forced" Cink, 43, out to play golf several times.
This week, he is playing in the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
"Earlier this month, I didn't feel like I'd ever want to play again," Cink said. "Now we have a handle on what it is, and we know what we're dealing with and what to expect."
PGA Tour pros wore pink ribbons at The Players Championship in Lisa's honor during Sunday's final round, which was a move Cink appreciated.
"To describe it as touching is an understatement," he said.
Cink shot a 2-over 74 in the first round Thursday. He was scheduled to tee off at 8:06 a.m. local time Friday but inclement weather pushed tee times back three hours.
