Stewart Cink and his wife Lisa are entering what will be a really difficult time in their lives as Lisa was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Stewart stepped away from the PGA Tour recently to help Lisa battle her disease and hopefully beat it.

At The Players Championship on Sunday, players honored the Cinks with pink ribbons tied to their hats. Some, like 54-hole leader Jason Day, also wore pink shirts.

Golfers always wear pink on Sundays at this tournament for breast cancer awareness, but this year's wardrobe hit especially close to home for both the golfers playing as well as the Cinks.

Stewart tweeted out his appreciation for the gesture.
