Peter Kostis announces that he's cancer free
Some great news from one of CBS' best analysts.
From the "great news" department, Peter Kostis announced on Twitter on Thursday that he is cancer free and returning to CBS' golf coverage for the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
To all my followers who sent thoughts and prayers this past year,THANK YOU!Final scan today was cancer free and I'm back on CBS at San Diego— Peter Kostis (@peterjkostis) January 9, 2014
Kostis, who once had a pretty famous rift with Tiger Woods, had surgery for his colon cancer last June and missed CBS' coverage of the PGA Championship.
In August he encouraged folks to get a colonoscopy exam.
"I am currently home recovering from successful surgery for colon cancer. It was detected early during a regular physical and colonoscopy. My great team of doctors in Phoenix will be putting me through preventative chemotherapy. Because of early detection the prognosis for a full recovery is excellent. I had zero symptoms or family history. I urge everyone, if you are over 50 get a regular colonoscopy exam whether you think you need one or not."
I'm excited to have him back with CBS for the 2014 year as his analysis and commentary is always fresh and good.
Cheers, Mr. Kostis.
