Phil Mickelson's wife, Amy MickelsonPhil Mickelson and Amy Mickelson have been married for a long time now, and she has supported Phil in all his endeavors throughout the years.

Before we dive deep into the relationship of the Mickelsons, let us learn more about Phil Mickelson’s wife, Amy Mickelson.

Amy McBride was born in 1972, two years after his husband. Unfortunately, the exact date of birth is unknown and there is nothing much known about her family or early life.

As for Phil and Amy Mickelson’s relationship, the couple met way back in 1992 when both were students of Arizona State University. During that time, Phil was a senior and Amy was a junior, and she did not know that he was a pro golfer until he told her.

“When he told me he was a pro golfer, I thought he worked in the shop at a golf course,” Amy said.

When they met, Amy Mickelson was part of the Phoenix Suns’ cheerleading squad. The couple went on their first date on a tennis court, and the rest — as they say — is history.

On November 16, 1996, Phil and Amy tied the knot and they have been together ever since.

Despite being considered one of the most beautiful love lives in the sports industry due to the length and strength of their relationship, Phil and Amy also went through their own sets of difficult challenges.

In 2009, Amy Mickelson was diagnosed with breast cancer. This forced Philip to withdraw from the PGA Tour in order to be with his wife and help her through her recovery. During that time, the golfing community was in support of the Mickelson family as they hosted a “Pink Out” wherein the PGA Tour players wore pink during the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

After an 11-month battle, Amy Mickelson beat cancer and has had a clean bill of health ever since. To make things even better, Phil won the Masters Tournament on April 11, 2010, with Amy watching on the sidelines. This was his third Masters victory.

This became a big moment in Masters history as it was an emotional win for Phil and the Mickelson family.

“We've been through a lot this year. It means a lot to share some joy together,” Mickelson said at the green jacket ceremony, his voice cracking as he struggled to keep control. “It's been such an incredible week, an emotional week. And to cap it off with a victory is something I can't put into words.”

After her successful battle with breast cancer, Amy has been active and heavily involved in fundraising for breast cancer research.

As for their family, Phil and Amy have three children in almost 3 decades of marriage. Their first child, Amanda Brynn, was born on June 21, 1999. Two years later, Amy gave birth to Sophia Isabel on October 23.

However, when she was giving birth to their first son, Evan Samuel, she went through a complicated experience because an artery in her uterus had ruptured which resulted in the baby to stop breathing. Nevertheless, the quick action by the doctor and nurses saved both Amy and her son.

Aside from Amy’s involvement in breast cancer research, the couple founded the Phil and Amy Mickelson Foundation in 2004 with the goal of supporting various youth and family initiatives.

“Family is our own number-one priority,” said Phil. “Both Amy and I benefited by being raised in our own strong, loving families and now we’re fortunate and thankful to be in a position to help others strengthen their own family bonds.”
