Aw Geesh

Best of luck, Amy, and I hope they can cure it completely

The news that Amy Mickelson has breast cancer stunned and saddened the sports world and put the playing schedule of her husband, 36-time PGA Tour winner Phil Mickelson, on hold indefinitely.
A brief statement released Wednesday morning by Gaylord Sports, Mickelson’s management company, said: “More tests are scheduled, but the treatment process is expected to begin with major surgery, possibly within the next two weeks.”
Mickelson withdrew from this week’s HP Byron Nelson Championship and has suspended his Tour schedule indefinitely, which casts doubts on whether he’ll play the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black on Long Island June 18-21. Mickelson became an East Coast favorite at the 2002 U.S. Open at Bethpage, where he finished second to Tiger Woods. In 18 U.S. Open tries, he’s finished runner-up four times, most recently at the 2006 Open at Winged Foot, but he’s never won the event.

I pray they caught it quickly enough.

  1. I second that sentiment, most emphatically. Our best wishes for a swift and COMPLETE recovery, and good for Phil.
