Since you've ruled out sunscald, the problem may be related to overwatering, dog urine damage, or to a boring insect. Too much water is easy to fix - simply cut back on the frequency. Check around the base for signs of soft and/or rotting stem tissue (especially near the base). If you find such, it could indicate a boring weevil; contact your County Extension Office about what to do.
