Longtime golf analyst and current member of the NBC and Golf Channel broadcast teams Mark Rolfing has been diagnosed with a rare form of salivary gland cancer. The nearly 20-year veteran will not be a part of NBC/Golf Channel broadcasts for the remainder of 2015.

”Debi and I would like to thank everyone for their incredible support and well wishes, which have been incredibly valuable,” Rolfing said in a statement. “My doctors and I are confident that by the end of the next phase of treatment, this cancer will be cured.”

Rolfing, who joined the NBC broadcast team in 1997, is in the second phase of treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. He underwent surgery August 13 to remove a malignant growth from his left cheek.
