Kenny Perry skips title defense to be with dying mother

Kenny Perry will not be defending his title at the Buick Open next week in Michigan so he can stay near his cancer-stricken mother.

Perry's mother, Mildred, is under hospice care as she battles blood cancer.

He said Tuesday he considered pulling out of the British Open last week until doctors assured him that his mother would be OK while he was in Scotland.
