When Hunter Mahan withdrew from the third round of the Canadian Open last weekend, Brandt Snedeker knew his chances of winning the tournament had increased.
Snedeker trailed Mahan by 10 shots when Mahan left for Dallas to be with his wife for the birth of their first child, but Snedeker ended up winning by three shots.
In some small part, Snedeker can thank Zoe Olivia Mahan, who was born early Sunday, for the win and said he has some big plans for his $1 million prize.
"Zoe will be getting a very nice baby gift from me," Snedeker said to the Golf Channel.
"It was the best decision I ever made. I'm sure Hunter would say the same thing," he said.
