Brandt Snedeker won the Canadian Open on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title of the year, closing with 2-under 70 for a three-stroke victory at Oakville, Ontario.

Snedeker took the lead Saturday after second-round leader Hunter Mahan withdrew when his wife went into labor, and held on in the breezy final round at Glen Abbey.

‘‘Just ecstatic right now,’’ Snedeker said. ‘‘This is a tournament I said early on in my career I wanted to win just because my caddie [Scott Vail] is actually from Canada and it’s his national open.’’

Mahan’s wife, Kandi, gave birth to daughter Zoe Olivia Mahan early Sunday in Texas.

‘‘Zoe will be getting a very nice baby gift from me,’’ Snedeker said.
