Phil Mickelson Wins Masters Shares Emotional Win with Wife Amy

AUGUSTA, GA – April 11, 2010, Phil Mickelson wins The Masters for a third time sharing his emotional win with wife Amy. Congratulations Phil for an outstanding game and very much deserved win. After Mickelson sank the final winning putt on the 18th hole, his wife Amy, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, was there waiting for him.

All eyes were on Mickelson as he embraced his wife for 27 seconds before a short kiss. A tear was seen rolling down his cheek as he was overcome with joy.

Mickelson’s wife Amy and mother Mary have both been diagnosed with breast cancer. Amy who once was one of the most visible wives on the PGA Tour, had not traveled to an event with her husband in 11 months since being diagnosed in May. The prognosis for Amy and his mother is good, however the cancer treatment has taken a toll on their energy level and on Mickerson’s as well.

“I really want to recognize my family,” Mickelson said after the win. “My wife, we have been through a lot this year and it really means a lot to share this joy together … This has been such an incredible week, an emotional week; to cap it off like this, I can’t put into words, but it’s something we’ll share the rest of our lives.”

“I’ll cherish every moment of this week,” Mickelson said. “It has been very special.”

Watch Phil’s final shot on the 18th hole that clenched him the green jacket.

Mickerson now joins a very special group of players who have won the Masters three times:
