Golf roundup: Leading, Hunter Mahan withdraws

His wife is in labor; Snedeker in control

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 at Oakville, Ontario.

Mahan was 13 under after two rounds when he got a call saying wife Kandi had gone into labor with their first child. He rushed to the airport for a flight to Texas.
