When It Rains It Pours

Jul 7, 2009

Earlier this year Phil Mickelson’s wife Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer.  He got some more bad news when he found out that his mother Mary also has breast cancer.  She is set to have surgery later this week at the same hospital where Amy had her surgery.  Phil has played in two tournaments since Amy’s diagnosis, including a second place finish in the U.S. Open.

Phil has not set a timetable for another return, but he is not likely to compete in the British Open.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the Mickelson family.
