OAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) -- 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. 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. Mahan's wife, Kandi, gave birth to daughter Zoe Olivia Mahan early Sunday in Texas. Snedeker finished at 16-under 272. The six-time PGA Tour winner also won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February. Snedeker had two birdies and a bogey on the front nine. He birdied the par-4 10th to move to 16 under, but gave the shot back on the par-3 12th. He birdied the par-5 16th and parred the final two holes. Dustin Johnson, William McGirt, Matt Kuchar and Jason Bohn tied for second. Johnson was tied for the lead after a birdie on No. 16, then drove out of bounds and hit the lip of a fairway bunker en route to a triple-bogey 7 on the par-4 17th. He finished with a 70. McGirt had a 68, and Kuchar and Bohn shot 71. David Hearn was the top Canadian, shooting a 73 to tie for 44th at 4 under. "It wasn't the finish that I was really looking for. I had a nice chance today,'' said Hearn, a playoff loser in the John Deere Classic. "I'll take away some positives from the week. I appreciate the support from everyone here this week and it always feels good to play at home.''
