--Mark Rolfing, golf analyst for NBC ..., 8 Feb 2016 [cached]
--Mark Rolfing, golf analyst for NBC Sports and the Golf Channel, said tests showed that the rare form of cancer he was afflicted with last year is "100 percent gone."
Rolfing discovered a small lump on his cheek below his ear on July 1 and believed it was part of a sinus infection.
However, the 65-year-old was diagnosed last summer with Stage 4 salivary gland cancer. Rolfing underwent a 7 1/2-hour operation to remove a malignant tumor before undergoing six weeks of proton radiation aimed at a small target on his face to avoid damage to the mouth and brain.
After a PET scan at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Rolfing said in a text message: "Mucho tears in Houston today. Cancer is 100 percent gone. Miracle."
Rolfing, who lives in Hawaii, returned to work with NBC and the Golf Channel for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, the Sony Open in Hawaii and the Mitsubishi Championship at Hualalai last month.
In addition, he was part of the NBC Sports team for the Waste Management Phoenix Open last week.
