Hunter Mahan, Real Man

Leading the Canadian Open after three days, and going into the final day looking for his first 2013 Tour win, Hunter Mahan got the call that his wife was going into labor.  It was coming a month before her due date, but she was heading to the hospital.

And leaving his two-stoke lead and potential million dollar payday behind, Hunter Mahan withdrew and sped the airport to catch a flight to be with his wife.

Perhaps that kind of behavior should be expected and not lauded.  But in an era where husbands send naked pictures of themselves to young women and still expect fame and fortune, it is refreshing to see a man leave fame and fortune behind to be a man.

I have a new favorite golfer.
