Phil Mickelson dedicates Master's win to his wife, a breast cancer survivor

Not all pro golfers have their spouses on their minds while they play the game, but Phil Mickelson proved that he's head and shoulders above his competition in more ways than one when he won the Master's tournament for the third time.

The talented golfer, who's wife Amy has been battling breast cancer for 11 months, dedicated his win to his wife.

"I could go on and on about why but to win this tournament is a special, special day," Mickelson said after his victory. "It's something I'll always cherish. It's been an emotional year. I'm very proud of my wife and the fight and struggle she's been through."

Take that, Tiger!

Over the past year, Mickelson has taken time off from the sport to be with his wife and his mother, who has also been diagnosed with breast cancer.

However, time off the course didn't seem to affect his game. The golfer came in 16 strokes under par.

Women of all ages should monitor the breast health. According to the American Cancer Society, women as young as 20 may begin administering breast self-exams to enhance their chances of early diagnosis.
