James Sets Return Date from Cancer Therapy

RSS

Former European Ryder Cup captain Mark James wants to be back on the golf course as early as May. The 47 year-old has been undergoing chemotherapy and has endured two major surgeries to remove a 'melon-sized' tumor in his stomach.
 
'I will not be able to swing a club until mid-April,' James told the British Daily Mail, 'but I aim to make the Volvo PGA at Wentworth in May my first event.'
 
James initially said he had lymphoma but further tests revealed he had testicular cancer that spread to his abdomen.
 
'Your priorities change in an instant and the priority for us both was getting me better. You suddenly find yourself with a chance that you might not live, let alone play golf again.'
 
His immediate plans focus on hitting the gym to get in shape in preparation for his May comeback.
