(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.
