Hunter Mahan gave up the lead in the Canadian Open when his wife went into labor, and Brandt Snedeker grabbed the top spot a few hours later Saturday at Oakville, Ontario.

Mahan was 13 under after two rounds when he got a call saying wife Kandi had gone into labor with their first child. He rushed to the airport for a flight to Texas.

Snedeker had a 9-under-par 63 at Glen Abbey to take the lead after the rain-delayed third round. There were scattered showers and an 80-minute delay because of lightning.

David Lingmerth was a stroke back after a 65, and Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn were 12 under. Kuchar had a 64, and Bohn shot 66.
