Who is Amy Mickelson?

Popularly known as the great golfer Phil Mickelson‘s wife, Amy is a Hollywood actress and a social worker.

Together with her husband, the couple has established Phil and Amy’s foundation to donate to the needy and specialize in family and youth initiatives.

Amy Mickelson was born in 1972; her exact date of birth is hidden from the public for an unknown reason.

She was born in California, United States; again, the exact details of her birth are undisclosed for whatever reason.

Which institutions did Amy Mickelson attend? | Educational Background

When she was in her mid-teens, Amy attended Harvest Park Middle School, located at Valley Ave, Pleasanton, California.

Following that, she was the freshman princess of Foothill high school in 1986.

Dave Ferry, a former student at the same institution and Greatest Man on Campus (GMOC) in his freshman year, remembers Mickelson.

He stated that Amy’s sincere, sweet behavior overlooked her beauty.

Dave said that he still remembers the first day Amy came to school. He said that all the popular boys would be in their bunch during lunchtime, and all the popular girls would have their group.

“All the boys went mingling over by her. So the popular girls panicked, introduced themselves, and all was right with the world,” Dave further commented.

Eventually, Amy Mickelson moved to Hillcrest High School, located in Midvale, Utah. She graduated from Hillcrest in 1990.

Regarding her college education, initially, she attended the University of Utah but did not last long there.

She transferred to Arizona State University, where she met her husband of 27 years.

Amy Mickelson’s Career

During her time at Arizona State University, Amy used to be a cheerleader. Amy was a cheerleader for the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Since her days at the Arizona State, she aspired to become an actress.

Following her passion for acting, she debuted in a film entitled Sunset (1988). Sadly, the movie failed to make an impression.

Apparently, that was the end of her career as an actress. Perhaps her acting skills were not that great, or maybe she found something more interesting than acting.

Mickelson now works as a social worker and runs a foundation named after herself and her husband.

The pro golfer’s wife has also established a foundation that raises funds for breast cancer women.

Amy Mickelson’s Net Worth

Amy Mickelson’s net worth is estimated to be around a million dollars, but our expertise suggests that her actual net worth might be upwards of 500 thousand dollars.

She played a minor role for her debut film, which did not pay much as it was an indie film, and her onscreen time was not much.

Besides that, she does not have any source of income unless she has her hands on some real estate or shares in companies.

On the other hand, her husband, Phil Mickelson‘s net worth is estimated to be around 400 million dollars.

Battling Breast Cancer

In 2009, Amy was diagnosed with deadly breast cancer. By the middle of 2009, she had begun her cancer treatment.

Following her treatment, she moved to Houston, Texas, for further medication and therapy.

In the late May of 2009, Amy’s diagnosis became public; Phil put a hold on his golf career for a moment there.

He opted out from defending his title the following weekend.

Mickelson wrote that there is an excellent team of doctors working on improving Amy’s condition. “We caught this early,” wrote Phil.

Phil also wrote that the couple is waiting for the test results to guide them in the best possible direction.

Amy had never missed any of Phil’s matches; she always stood by his side, cheering him and supporting him.

But her battle with breast cancer stopped her from doing so for a while.

However, Amy did show up at the 2010 Masters Tournament Finals, where Phil was playing against Lee Westwood. The event was held at the Augusta National Golf Course.

Amy, along with her three children, showed support and encouraged Phil. Likewise, Phil Mickelson went on to snatch the trophy and won a 1.35 million dollars prize.

In 2012, she started attending Phil’s matches after her health conditions began showing signs of improvement.

Her health got significantly better, and she eventually recovered from breast cancer.

The 2012 Ryder Cup was the first match she attended after her recovery.

Support for Breast Cancer at Phil’s Match

During the 2009 PGA tour, Amy’s husband, Phil Mickelson, and his colleagues and their wives wore pink in Amy’s honor. As a result, the event was named ‘Pink Out.’

This special honorary event was held in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Tears were streaming down the couple’s face when they heard that the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, PGA Tour, and tour wives organized the event.

“We both had tears rolling down our faces,” said Phil during an interview.

He added that the ‘Pink Out’ was an incredibly thoughtful gesture for Amy and the two hundred thousand women who have breast cancer each year.

Phil and Amy Mickelson Foundation

The Phil and Amy Mickelson Foundation recently donated a million dollars to 14 charity organizations in Coachella valley.

The proceedings from the 2020 American Express tournament were donated.

American Express tournament was held in the January of 2020, which successfully raised over a million dollars. Various charities, including the Boys and Girls Club of Coachella Valley, Alzheimer’s Association Coachella Valley, and Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, received the donation. 

Likewise, in November of 2020, it was announced that the proceedings of the 2021 American Express would be donating to multiple charities based in Coachella Valley.

It was said that the 2021 donation would focus on local non-profit organizations.

Before the 2020 American Express tournament, Phil and Amy Mickelson Foundation became the official host organization for The American Express.

Phil and Amy Mickelson’s Relationship

When Phil and Amy came across each other, Amy was a member of the cheerleading team for the Pheonix Suns of the National Basketball Association.

On the other hand, Phil was already a great professional golfer by then, but Amy had no idea about it.

“I thought he worked in a golf course shop,” Amy thought.

Amy was just a new junior when the two met each other. Phil was in his senior year.

The first date the couple went on was a tennis match between them. Could not expect any less from a pro athlete!

Later, Phil Mickelson invited Amy to Bob Hope Celebrity Pro-Am event held in Palm Springs, CA.

As time went on, the two started growing feelings for each other, eventually falling in love.

Phil and Amy dated for four years before getting married in 1996, on the 16th of November. The couple is so in sync and so into each other; they have been spotted kissing each other at the Lakers’ game. 

Amy and Phil, together, appeared at the 2003 swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated too.

Phil and Amy have three children together; two daughters and a son.

The oldest of the bunch, Amanda Brynn Mickelson, was born on the 21st of June, 1999, three years after their marriage.

Amanda was born right after the day Phil lost the 1999 US open against Payne Stewart. (Phil has won many awards and accolades, but he has never won a US Open, he has gotten close to the victory, placing second over six times but has not yet won one.)

Sophia Mickelson was born Sophia Isabel Mickelson on the 23rd of October. She is interested in acting and has debuted in Ruta Madre, a San-Diego based movie.

Similarly, Evans Samuel Mickelson was born on the 23rd of March, 2003. 

He was born the third and youngest child and the only son to Phil Mickelson and Amy’ McBride’ Mickelson.

Rumors have grown, indicating that the family’s only son wishes to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Evans has started playing in the minor leagues and has also begun professional training.

Social Media Links

Amy Mickelson does not have any verified accounts on any of the social media platforms. Maybe she prefers to stay low as possible, minding her own business.

Likewise, her two daughters do not enjoy social media platforms much, as Amanda does not use any, and Sophia is an inactive user.

Similarly, the only son of Mickelson, Evans, is not an exception; his last Instagram postdates the 16th of February, 2018.
