Mickelson's wife has breast cancer

Posted: Updated:

Phil Mickelson 's wife, Amy, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and the three-time major champion says he will suspend his PGA Tour schedule indefinitely.

Mickelson 's management company says Amy Mickelson will begin treatment with major surgery as early as the next two weeks.

Amy Mickelson is among the most visible wives on the PGA Tour, a former Phoenix Suns cheerleader who regularly walks during the rounds and mingles easily with the gallery. They met in 1992 when Mickelson was a senior at Arizona State, a year after he won his first PGA Tour event as an amateur. They were married in 1996 and have three children.

Mickelson was to play the Byron Nelson Championship this week, and defend his title next week at Colonial.
