(USA Today) -- Hunter Mahan was in prime position to capture his first PGA Tour victory of the year this weekend. 

A stellar second-round 64 vaulted him into the lead, and conditions at Glen Abbey in Ontario were prime for scoring today. 

There was just one problem: His wife Kandi went into labor. 

The couple had been expecting a baby girl for some time, and Mahan knew he might have to withdraw from a tournament when the time came (Kandi's expected due date was after August's PGA Championship). 

He only hit a few balls on the practice range before his agent received a call from Kandi. Hunter immediately withdrew from the tournament and headed to the airport.
