What would you have done? Thats the question a lot of golf fans were asking themselves after Hunter Mahan had to withdraw from the RBC Canadian Open last year to be home for the birth of his daughter. Michael Bennett Jersey . Mahan, of course, was leading the tournament at the time, which made the exit that much more dramatic. Now as any parent knows, theres nothing like being in the delivery room to see your child come into the world. And Mahan wasnt going to miss that. "Its always one of those things for golfers," he said. "What if you had to go home and you were in the lead on Sunday or Saturday. It is kind of one of those crazy things you think about and discuss with your family and your wife, but most of the time it never really happens." But it did happen to Mahan, of course. And no one questioned his departure, which worked perfectly thanks to a friend with a private jet that was sitting in Toronto. "I talked to the doctor and he said youve got plenty of time, its not one of those things that you have to rush, even though I was going to do everything I could to get there as soon as possible. So I hung up the phone and started the process of trying to get home." Not everyone would have made the same choice as Mahan, however. Ive talked to other pros who say they may have stayed and played. Most of those were less established players, ones who didnt have the security of a PGA Tour card locked up or a bank account with millions in it. The thinking goes that dad could probably better provide for his new child by getting the win on the PGA Tour. Theres no easy choice, thats for sure. Obviously Mahan made the right one for him. Food For Thought And its not all about golf for Mahan. He took Tuesday off from swinging the clubs to recharge the batteries after a long week at the British Open. He did a little walking around in Montreal and had lunch at Schwartzs Deli - of course it was Montreal Smoked Meat. "Thats a must," he said. Gone Streaking Mike Weir was in the interview room and I was surprised - although I probably shouldnt have been - when he said this was his 24th Open. That makes him old, but it makes me older. I think his best answer of the Q&A was when he was asked about the 60-year drought of Canadians winning the tournament. "It would be a nice streak to get over so we dont have to talk about it anymore." Amen to that. The Strokes Jim Furyk comes into the Open well rested. Prior to the British, he took a month off, the first time hes done that in his career. But its not surprising that he and other players are playing fewer events in the weeks leading up to this stretch. Thats because most of the top names are playing nine or 10 or 11 events through the FedEx Cup playoffs and, if they qualify, the Ryder Cup. Furyk is pretty much a lock to make that team. Of course no player has it worse than Brandt Snedeker. Two of his major sponsors are RBC and Wyndham, which host non-major, non-WGC events in that stretch. If he plays all four playoff events hell play nine consecutive weeks. Frank Clark Jersey . Canada will host Japan in a World Group first-round match in 2015. It will be a rematch of their first-round clash last year when Japan defeated Canada 4-1 to reach the World Group quarter-finals for the first time in its history. Cliff Avril Jersey . Ending a nine-game losing streak? That gave the Milwaukee Bucks veteran forward a reason to smile. http://www.footballseahawksfanatics.com/authentic-ethan-pocic-seahawks-jersey/ . -- The Denver Broncos are shuffling their offensive line this off-season and Orlando Franklin provided some insight into their plans Monday by tweeting that hes moving from right tackle to left guard.Blacksburg, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - The eighth-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish begin a two-game road trip on Thursday evening, as the take on the Virginia Tech Hokies in ACC action at the Cassell Coliseum. Mike Breys Irish are one of the top teams in the ACC, sporting a 17-2 overall record, including a 5-1 league ledger. The start is the programs best since the 1978-79 campaign (also 17-2). Notre Dame has won two straight and 12 of its last 13 games. The teams two losses this year have both come by one point, a 75-74 loss at Providence on Nov. 23, and a 71-70 loss at North Carolina on Jan. 5. Most recently, the team posted a come-from-behind, 75-70 win over Miami-Florida last weekend. Buzz Williams first season in Blacksburg has come with mixed reviews thus far. The team is just 8-9 on the season thanks to five straight losses. The Hokies are still seeking their first ACC win of the season. A 68-53 loss at North Carolina on Sunday dropped the team to 0-4 in league play. It has been quite the gauntlet for Tech recently, as Notre Dame represents the third straight ranked foe on the docket. The set will conclude with a fourth ranked foe this coming Sunday as the team hosts No. 2 Virginia. Notre Dame has won four of the five all-time meetings in this series, with the four wins coming in the last four matchups. The Irish trailed Miami, 43-31 with just over 15 minutes remaining in the game, but responded with a 21-7 run to take a lead just under the 10-minute mark. Notre Dame remained in front the rest of the way in picking up its 17th win of the season. Five players notched double figures in the victory, led by Jerian Grants 23 points. V.J. Beachem added 13 points, followed by Steve Vasturia (11 pts), Pat Connaughton (10 pts) and Demetrius Jackson (10 pts). The Irish are still a lethal offensive squad, despite the recent absence of Zach Auguste (13.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg). A key contributor this season, Auuguste has missed the last couple of games due to academic issues. Sheldon Richardson Jersey. He is ruled out indefinitely. While most teams would miss a player of Augustes ability, the Irish have been able to assuage the loss thanks to great depth. Grant is one of the nations premier guards and currently leads the team in scoring (16.7 ppg) and the ACC in assists (6.4 apg). Connaughton has been superb as well, posting 13.8 points and a team-best 8.3 rebounds per game. Jackson is equally adept at filling up the basket at 13.6 ppg. On the season, the Irish are averaging 81.7 ppg on a hefty .528 shooting (second nationally). The Hokies are coming off their lowest scoring output of the 2015 calendar year, as the team struggled at Chapel Hill last weekend against the Tar Heels. Virginia Tech trailed 34-21 at the break and was unable to make up ground in the second half. Overall, Tech shot a rather ugly .358 from the field and was abused on the boards, getting outrebounded 49-22. Adam Smith led the team in defeat, coming off the bench to score 11 points. Shane Henry was the only other Hokie in double figures, finishing with 10 points. The team was without freshman star Justin Bibbs, who missed the game due to concussion-like symptoms. Virginia Tech is far from an offensive juggernaut at 68.1 ppg, but the team does shoot an efficient 46.3 percent from the field overall, which includes nearly 40 percent from behind the arc (.399). Bibbs is the top scoring threat on the roster at 13.6 ppg. The 6-foot-5 freshman is shooting just over 50 percent from the floor, including an impressive 47.5 percent from 3-point range. However, Bibbs status for this game is up in the air, as he continues through concussion protocol. Smith is the only other player with a double- digit scoring average at 12.9 ppg. The team suspended Joey van Zegeren (9.8 ppg) indefinitely, further depleting the roster heading into this game.
