OAKVILLE, ONTARIO (AP) - Hunter Mahan gave up the lead in the Canadian Open when his wife went into labor, and Brandt Snedeker grabbed the top spot a few hours later Saturday.
Mahan was 13 under after two rounds when he got a call before he was scheduled to tee off Saturday saying wife Kandi had gone into labor. The American rushed to the airport for a flight to Texas.
Snedeker had a 9-under 63 at Glen Abbey to take the lead after the rain-delayed third round. He won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February for his fifth PGA Tour victory.
Sweden’s David Lingmerth was a stroke back after a 65, and Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn were 12 under. Kuchar had a 64, and Bohn shot 66. Dustin Johnson also shot 63, good for a tie for fifth at 11 under with John Merrick (72), Greg Owen (67), Charley Hoffman (67) and Kyle Stanley (66).
