Professional golfer, Hunter Mahan, left the Canadian Open prematurely on Sunday despite leading the tournament.  Hunter withdrew from the $1,000,000 tournament while having a two-stroke lead.  Hunter bowed out before the tournament on Sunday.  His daughter was born at 3:26am Sunday morning.

“Both Baby and Mom are doing great. Thanks to all to my sponsors who appreciate what’s important in life and all my fans for being Awesome!” Mahan tweeted.

I think what amazes me most about this story is that everywhere I’ve seen it reported, it refers to him as like “Dad of the Year” and “such a great guy.”  For what?  Doing what he should? Putting his wife and his new baby first?  – Hot Wings
