After missing the cut at last week's Wells Fargo Championship, Blayne Barber alerted his followers on Twitter that he would be away to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.
Barber wrote on Friday, May 15, "Really fought hard this week, just didn't quite hit it well enough. Thankful for the positives though. Onward to becoming a dad!" This explains why he didn't commit to this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial or next week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. The PGA TOUR rookie is 96th in the FedExCup standings, so the only sleep he should be losing will occur shortly after the baby is born. May 22 - 7:25 PM
