AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Hunter Mahan has withdrawn from the Bridgestone Invitational to spend time at home with his newborn daughter.

Mahan had a two-shot lead in the Canadian Open heading into the third round when he learned his wife had gone into labor in Dallas. He withdrew from the tournament and flew home Saturday, and she gave birth to a girl the next day.

Mahan won the Bridgestone Invitational three years ago. He says he'll miss the World Golf Championship event to spend what he calls ``this precious first week'' with their daughter, Zoe.

Mahan says he will return next week at the PGA Championship. He has played in the final group at the last two majors.
