Golf commentator Mark Rolfing overcame a shocking diagnosis of stage IV salivary gland cancer in 2015. Rolfing’s cancer was rare and he turned to MD Anderson Cancer Center for proton radiation therapy. Dentists have also played a role in his cancer care, recovery and survivorship.
Rolfing will be on hand in Houston for the Mark Rolfing Experience: three events at SmileCon 2022 that draw on both his career achievements among golf’s premier broadcasters and his winning bout with cancer.
The events will include a meet-and-greet with putting practice, fundraiser to benefit children fighting cancer, and a continuing education course panel with discussion of his medical and dental treatment.
With more than 30 years on national television, Rolfing is well-known to golf fans. He is prominently featured on NBC and Golf Channel tournament broadcasts at major championships. USA Today named him “Golf’s best on-course commentator.” The PGA of America honored Mark and his wife Debi with their Distinguished Service Award in 2017, recognizing those who advance humanitarian interests through the game.
Dental Central will host an open meet-and-greet opportunity and interactive putting display with Rolfing providing individualized instruction and tips. NO pre-registration is required to participate.
