Phil Mickelson's Wife Amy Mickelson Diagnosed With Breast Cancer
PGA golfer Phil Mickelson has announced that he will suspend his tour schedule while his wife Amy Mickelson receives treatment for breast cancer. Mickelson has already withdrawn from his next two PGA events as Amy prepares what has been described as major surgery.
The announcement is a major blow to the PGA Tour. As the Number two golfer in the world Phil Mickelson is a major draw. Phil Mickelson's wife is almost as big a draw. An attractive outgoing blonde, Amy Mickelson has become fixture at PGA events, often interacting with fans and signing autographs.
No doubt those in the golfing world and elsewhere wish her a speedy recovery. However, Amy Mickelson's age may be factor as breast cancer can be more aggressive in younger women.
