RANCHO MIRAGE, California -- Natalie Gulbis is returning to play in the Kraft Nabisco Championship after recovering from malaria.
Infected by a mosquito during the LPGA Thailand event, Gulbis withdrew after the first round the following week in Singapore. She hoped to return two weeks ago in Carlsbad at the Kia Classic, but was back in the doctor's office after a practice round.

SAUCIER, Mississippi -- Corey Pavin birdied the first six holes in a blistering start Saturday in the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic.
The rest of his day wasn't as impressive, but the 53-year-old Pavin still walked off the 18th green with a smile on his face. He wasn't about to complain about the 5-under 67 that put him in contention for his first Champions Tour victory of the season.
Instead, he focused on the six straight birdies as a good omen for the final round. Pavin has only made six straight birdies in a tournament one other time -- at the PGA Tour's 2006 U.S. Bank Championship -- and he finished that weekend with a victory.

It's been over 112 years since golf was played as an Olympic sport but come 2016, the best golfers in the world will be competing for a gold medal once again.
Canada is able to claim being the defending champions as George Lyon of Richmond, Ontario took home the gold in 1904 when the games were held in St. Louis.
This week, the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee offered a sneak peak at the design for the new 18-hole golf course that will host the world's best players in Brazil in three years.

NEWPORT BEACH, California -- David Frost won the Toshiba Classic on Sunday, shooting a 65 to defeat Fred Couples by five strokes and tie the tournament record of 19-under 194 set by Jay Haas in 2007.
Frost joined 2011 winner Nick Price as the only golfers to lead wire to wire in the event's 19 years. It was his fourth career Champions Tour victory and first since last year's AT&T Championship in San Antonio.
"I felt as good as I did the first two days," Frost said. "I really enjoyed the tussle with Freddy (Couples) out there."
