Hunter Mahan is a professional golfer who many feel made one of the most controversial decisions of 2013 while competing in the RBC Canadian Open tournament. His wife went into labour with their first child and he left the tournament in Toronto, Canada to fly back to Dallas despite being in the lead by 2 strokes at the start of the third day to attend the birth of his daughter Zoe. If he had continued to play and had won the tournament he would have pocketed a cheque that totaled over $1 million. Many golf professionals and fans feel that his decision must have been very difficult for Hunter Mahan to make but when viewed from his perspective it was not likely not at all a very difficult decision.
Hunter Mahan is a family man
 
Hunter Mahan has earned over $24 million during the course of his career. As such, he is playing for the competition and joy of the game. He was not going to suffer financially if he left the RBC tournament to attend the birth of his child and be by the side of his wife. His choice is completely different from the choice an individual who is living on a limited income that can barely pay the weekly or monthly bills.
 
If Hunter Mahan were an individual who was fighting to remain a member of the PGA tour and needed a win or top five finish to retain his professional accreditation as a PGA tour player no one would have supported his decision to leave the RBC Canadian Open tournament. This was not the case for Hunter Mahan, PGA player who for the past several years has been considered one of the top golfers in the world.

Hunter Mahan is a very successful golfer who has won five times on the PGA tour and had over 45 top 10 finishes in his career. As much as Hunter Mahan may love to win in the game of golf his decision was not a difficult one because he knows he can always come back to play a tournament but you can never be present a second time for the birth of your first child. 
 
The consequences of Hunter Mahan leaving the tournament while he was leading were financial reasons that would not impact his standard of life. Hunter Mahan past success as a golf professional provided him the financial security by which he could make the decision to be present for the birth of his daughter. His decision is admirable and respectable but it should be looked at in the perspective of a wealthy business person saying “no” to a deal with another wealthy company because it conflicted with their schedule. 
 
Hunter Mahan’s decision was not one that would make a parent look back and question whether the decision would impact the financial future of their family. If the decision could make the difference between a lifetime of financial security for the Hunter Mahan’s family or a life of poverty than Hunter Mahan’s decision could be deemed both questionable and controversial but that was not the case and as such his decision should not be described as one that might have been in the least bit difficult, at least for those individuals who value the importance of their family and living with a happy wife. A happy wife means a peaceful home. An unhappy wife means many nights on the couch … alone.
