Hunter Mahan, who was leading the RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club after two rounds but left for home when his wife went into labor a month early, introduced the world to his baby daughter, Zoe Olivia Mahan.
Mahan, a native of Orange, Calif., and the Pacific 10 Conference freshman of the year at USC before transferring to Oklahoma State, finished in a tie for ninth last week at the British Open.
He was two shots clear of the field at the Canadian Open at 13 under par through 36 holes after a second-round 64 when he received word before the start of the third round on Saturday that his wife, Kandi, was in labor.
In a no-brainer decision, he packed his bags and headed home to Dallas so he could attend the birth of Zoe. He was busy Sunday morning announcing her birth via Twitter.
