Phil Mickelson and Amy McBride met in 1992 at Arizona State University and were married on November 16, 1996. They have three children: Amanda Brynn, Sophia Isabel and Evan Samuel. Amy Mickelson, once a cheerleader for the Phoenix Suns, became one of the most visible spouses on the golf field. She traveled with her husband on the PGA Tour, often bringing along the children. Phil and Amy even founded a charitable foundation.
