Notah Begay III is sitting out this week's Legends Reno-Tahoe Open as he awaits the birth of his second child.

Begay says his wife is a week past due, and he will remain at home with her until the baby arrives.

Four other golfers _ Roland Thatcher, Ben Crane, Stephen Leaney and John Merrick _ also withdrew Monday. They were replaced by Olin Browne, Mark Hensby, Robert Gamez, Dan Forsman, Craig Barlow and Brent Geiberger.

The tournament begins Thursday at Montreux Golf & Country Club on the edge of the Sierra Nevada southwest of Reno.
