Pavin: Phil Mickelson's wife, dealing with cancer, plans Ryder Cup trip

U.S. captain Corey Pavin says the wife of Phil Mickelson is planning to make the trip to the Ryder Cup.

Amy Mickelson has only been to the golf course one time since she was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 2009. She showed up in the final hour at Augusta National to watch her husband win the Masters for the third time.

Mickelson said Wednesday that his family has been through a lot over the last 16 months — his mother also was diagnosed with breast cancer — and the Masters victory made his year because his whole family was there.

Amy Mickelson also went to the Presidents Cup in San Francisco last October, although she stayed at the team hotel.

Pavin says she is not going to be on the charter flight from Atlanta, but plans to arrive later in the week.
