Graeme McDowell revealed some big news at the Honda Classic on Friday — his wife Kristin is expecting their first child, a girl. The baby is due to arrive during the FedEx Cup play-offs, a month before the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, at the end of August.

"We found on Tuesday it's a girl," he said Friday at the Honda Classic. "Obviously, we're real excited....

"I think we're planning to have her, if all goes well, the Monday of Boston if she decides to stay in there that long.

"It's a great problem to have. I really don't care when she comes, as long as she's healthy. The playoffs into the Ryder Cup ... not much you can do there. But if it affects the playoffs, then it affects the playoffs. There will be other playoffs. You only have your first kid once."
