NBC golf analyst Rolfing battling cancer

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Television golf analyst Mark Rolfing has been diagnosed with salivary gland cancer and will not be part of the Golf Channel or NBC broadcast team for the rest of the year.

Rolfing had surgery three weeks ago to remove a malignant growth from his left cheek area. He said Thursday he is starting a second phase of treatment at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston for this rare form of cancer.

NBC and Golf Channel televise the last three FedEx Cup playoff events and the Presidents Cup.

Rolfing says his doctors are confident the cancer will be cured after the second phase of treatment. He lives at Kapalua on Maui and says he intends to rejoin the broadcast team at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in January.
