Brandt Snedeker gets Hunter Mahan funny gift for his new baby

Brandt-SnedekerBrandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open last month with a little help from mother nature. Hunter Mahan was the leader in the tournament after 36 holes, but he withdrew when his wife went into labor. There’s no telling if Snedeker could have won the event without Mahan bailing early, but it certainly didn’t hurt.

Snedeker thanked Mahan’s wife, beautiful former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kandi Harris, after the victory and joked that he would be getting the couple’s new daughter a very nice gift to thank her for arriving early. From a creativity standpoint, Snedeker and his wife delivered.

Given the amount of money Snedeker won after Mahan withdrew, he could have dug into his pockets a bit deeper than that. In any event, the Snedekers get an A+ for creativity. I’m sure Mr. and Mrs. Mahan appreciated the gesture.

Brandt Snedeker thanks Hunter Mahan’s wife for going into labor

Brandt-SnedekerBrandt Snedeker on Sunday won his second PGA Tour tournament of the season when he posted a score of 16-under at the Canadian Open. The third round on Saturday was Snedeker’s best, as he shot a 63 to put himself in great position heading into the final round. But the biggest boost he received may have come before the third round even began.

Hunter Mahan led the Canadian Open after 36 holes when he withdrew to be with his wife, former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kandi Harris, who had gone into labor. Snedeker made sure to thank them after his big win.

“Zoe (Mahan’s newborn daughter) will be getting a very nice baby gift from me,” Snedeker said, via the Sporting News. “I can’t thank Kandi enough for going into labor early. I don’t know if I’d be sitting here if she hadn’t. But that is a way more important thing than a golf tournament. I missed a golf tournament when my first was born, and it was the best decision I ever made. I’m sure Hunter would say the same thing.”

Mahan is only 31, so he will have plenty of time to rack up wins on the PGA Tour. The birth of your first child only happens once, so most people will agree that he made the right choice. And if it matters to you, his wife happens to be one of the better looking WAGs in golf. Mahan’s abrupt exit was a win for everyone.
