VIRGINIA WATER, England(AP) John Daly wore bright pink trousers during Sunday's final round of the BMW PGA Championship in a gesture of support for Phil Mickelson's wife after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

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 I'd 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. I've known them for a long time - we've played the Tour together. She's a great lady. She has always been a sweetheart to everybody.''

Daly had not yet spoken to Phil Mickelson, but said he had been affected personally by breast cancer.

``I sent out a media message,'' Daly said. ``He's probably surrounded by callers right now and I didn't want to bother him. I'm sure everybody on Tour and everybody in the world is thinking about her.

``There's been some (breast cancer) in the family and a lot of friends. It's just a tough thing women have to go through. But if they caught it in time, it is curable.''
