Amy Mickelson was diagnosed last week with the disease and received a message of support on Friday from Darren Clarke, who lost his wife to breast cancer in 2006.
I had a pair, so I figured Id do that for her today. I thought it would be a good gesture, Daly said of his trousers. I know Phil very well and I know Amy. Ive known them for a long time ' weve played the Tour together. Shes a great lady. She has always been a sweetheart to everybody.
Daly had not yet spoken to Phil Mickelson, but said he had been impacted personally by breast cancer.
I sent out a media message, Daly said. Hes probably surrounded by callers right now and I didnt want to bother him. Im sure everybody on Tour and everybody in the world is thinking about her.
Theres been some (breast cancer) in the family and a lot of friends. Its just a tough thing women have to go through. But if they caught it in time, it is curable.
