AVONDALE, La. – PGA Tour pro Marc Leishman expects his swing to be rusty at this weekend's Zurich Classic, not that he's terribly concerned about it.
His outlook is transformed since taking the past month off to be with family and tend to his two young boys while his wife, Audrey, fought off an infection that nearly killed her.
Leishman says that when his wife was in a medically induced coma, he wondered if he'd have to become a stay-at-home dad and hang up his clubs for a while. But Audrey is home now, progressing through what's expected to be a months-long recovery.
Leishman says he doesn't expect to contend at the TPC Louisiana, where the field includes several players in good recent form, including Justin Rose, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson.
