10:27 AM ET 07.11 | First, Shaun Micheel learned that insurance approved another CAT scan for his mother, Donna, who is being treated for small cell carcinoma. Then, he went out and tied his career low with a 63 - and lost ground to leader Steve Stricker. With Stricker already qualified for the British Open, the next best finisher in the top 5 will get the final spot. Is Micheel thinking about a seat on the charter flight to Scotland? After playing 5 events in a row, Micheel withdrew Saturday from next week's Reno-Tahoe Open. He wants to take Donna to her medical appointments. But if he gets into the British Open, the decision whether to go or not rests with his mom.
