Last Sunday, John Daly and Rory Sabbatini both sported pink to show their support for Amy Mickelson’s battle against breast cancer. Earlier this week, the PGA Wives Association and PGA circulated a memo encouraging wives and players to take part in the “Pink Out” by wearing pink clothing on Saturday at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Many players also have been wearing a pink ribbon on their hats this week.
The Tour is asking fans to do the same as well as encouraging them to take pictures of their outfits and uploading them on the PGA’s Facebook fan page. I’d like to rally everyone to participate. I won’t be at the tournament, but you can be sure I’ll be pinking it out. I’m looking forward to seeing the outpour of pink not only on the course, but by fans/supporters across the board. As a side note, I wonder if Anthony Kim has a blinged-out pink belt…
Pink is the new black, guys. Let’s get it done. But if wearing pink ain’t your thang, I urge you to show your support by donating to organizations that are making a concerted effort each day to raise awareness and find tomorrow’s cure for breast cancer, such as The Pink Agenda. Go HERE to learn more and make a contribution.
The good news is that doctors believe they caught Amy’s cancer early. She went through series of test this week and Phil Mickelson made an announcement on his website yesterday.
“We have a wonderful team of doctors helping us, and it is believed that we caught this early. We are anxiously waiting for a number of test results that will help guide us in the best possible direction.”
I certainly hope that’s the case and our best goes out to the Mickelson family.
