Brandt Snedeker takes Canadian Open lead after Hunter Mahan withdraws with wife in labor

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 saying wife Kandi had gone into labor with their first child. 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.

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.
