Agent disputes report that Natalie Gulbis has malaria

Natalie_300_blogNatalie Gulbis withdrew from the HBSC Championship in Singapore before her second round of the tournament due to an unspecified illness.

Butch Harmon, her instructor, tweeted about the seriousness of Gulbis' diagnosis as well as LGPA golfer Se Ri Pak's, who withdrew from the tournament earlier in the week.

But Harmon's report has been refuted by her agent, David Livingston, as well as the LPGA.

Gulbis shot a 3-over opening round of 75 on Thursday, while Pak didn't play in the first round.

LPGA's Se Ri Pak out for at least two months after falling on stairs

Posted at 12:02 PM by

Se-ri-pakLPGA golfer Se Ri Pak withdrew from this week’s Mobile Bay LPGA Classic in Alabama after she injured her shoulder slipping on stairs, Pak said Friday in a statement.

Pak said she has a slight tear in the labrum of her left shoulder. She hurt her shoulder when she slipped on stairs Tuesday. After an MRI on Thursday, Pak decided to begin rehabilitation immediately to avoid surgery, she said.

“Right now, there is no timeline for my return to the LPGA, but I know the next two months of rehab will be important for my recovery,” said Pak. “I have a positive outlook and I fully expect to return to the LPGA Tour as soon as the time is right.”

Pak, 34, has won 25 LPGA Tour events and five major championships. She was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2007 at age 29, the youngest living entrant ever.

What to Watch For: Round 1 McDonald's LPGA Championship

Posted at 11:03 AM by Michael Bamberger

I won't be able to make to the McDonald's LPGA Championship until Sunday, but in the meantime I'll be able to follow it on ... Golf Channel. All four rounds are on GC, Thursday and Friday 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekend. I'm lucky enough to get Golf Channel. What's that? You don't get Golf Channel? You're accustomed to watching the women play their majors on network TV? You're not alone. Four rounds of the women's second major on cable TV is an experiment of the Carolyn Bivens administration, one that I don't pretend to understand.

In any event, it's a great event, as are all the women's majors. In the Thursday opening round I'll be eager to see what Se Ri Pak can do. The Hall of Famer had her only top-10 of the year last week, a second-place finish at the State Farm, when she closed with a 66, and I hope she can pick up where she left off. I think Pak still has one of the most good-looking swings in all of golf, in the tradition of Ernie Els, and there is much to learn from it. I first covered her as a LPGA rookie sensation when she spoke no English and was on a short leash by her father. Now she expresses herself beautifully in English and she's a role model for the scores and scores of elite South Korean women golfers, both on the circuit and those trying to get there. It's inspiring to see what she has been able to accomplish. Pak's too good not to contend often and win again. Maybe this will be one of those weeks.
