hunterIt would take a pretty special circumstance for a golfer to withdraw from a PGA Tour event that he was leading after two rounds, but becoming a father qualifies.

Hunter Mahan had a two-shot lead at the Canadian Open on Saturday when he received word that his wife, Kandi had gone into labor. The 31-year-old was on the practice range when his agent got the call, and Mahan immediately withdrew from the tournament and headed to the airport.

The Mahans are expecting a girl, whom they will reportedly name Zoe, but after leaving the Glen Abbey course in Oakville, Ontario, prematurely, the couple should really take Abbey into consideration.
