The bad news is five-time PGA Tour winner Rory Sabbatini was diagnosed with skin cancer in December. The good news is he is “fine” after surgery, though he will have to be careful and wear big hats and be diligent in applying sunscreen.

The better news is Sabbatini, among the top 20 in Tour earnings four of the past seven years, is planning to raise money for charity through a sunscreen-related launch at next week's PGA Merchandise Show.
