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.

OBVIOUSLY MR. MALLARET DOESN'T CARE FOR AMERICANS, OR TEAM SPIRIT UNLESS HE HAS A PASSION FOR THE EUROPEANS. LIKE MANY PEOPLE WHO TALK DOWN ABOUT THIS COUNTRY BUT LIVE HERE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE FREEDOMS WE FIGHT AND DIE FOR, I JUST SAY GO LIVE OVER THERE IF YOU DON'T ALREADY, AND IF YOU HAVE LOST A LOVED ONE TO BREAST CANCER, YOU JUST MIGHT CARE!

Frankly, who really cares? Good health for her anyhow.

I agree with the both of you Barry and Ronn. Phil is the greatest because he epitimizes all the great qaulities golf has been founded on. Golf is more than winning and a great swing; it is about honor, integrity, honesty and so many other good traits that separate golf from all other sports. What a great guy for standing next to his wife during his families time of need. Phil and Amy are such great ambassadors for golf.
