Baby on board

Monday, June 15, 2009

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – In between practicing pitch shots from some mighty thick spinach, Sean O’Hair addressed the baby talk. He and his wife, Jackie, are expecting their third child, and O’Hair confirmed it could be any day now.

“I think it’s going to be this week,” he said.

When asked what he was planning to do he answered, “Don’t know yet.”

When pressed whether he would follow in the footsteps of Phil Mickelson a decade ago at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, he said, “No, I’m not.”

Also of concern is an arm injury that he sustained at the Colonial and aggravated at the Memorial. He eventually withdrew from the event. O’Hair said he’s 70 percent and feels a little pain. He’s been resting and rehabbing it.

I’m no longer feeling so confident about my pre-tournament pick, but if his wife has the baby and he wins it could be a pretty special Father’s Day for the 26-year-old. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
