CARLSBAD, California -- Beatrtiz Recari sank an 18-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the second hole of a playoff with I.K. Kim to win the Kia Classic on Sunday.
After Recari and Kim three-putted No. 18 both in regulation and on the first playoff hole, Recari ended it for her first victory since her rookie season of 2010. The 25-year-old Spaniard raised both arms in the air and later wiped away tears.

PHOENIX, Arizona -- Stacy Lewis won the LPGA Founders Cup on Sunday to jump to No. 1 in the world, taking advantage of Ai Miyazato's collapse on the 16th hole.
A day after Lewis was penalized two strokes for her caddie's blunder on the short par 4, the American took a two-stroke lead with a birdie on the hole after Miyazato made a double bogey following an errant approach shot that left her with an unplayable lie in a desert bush.
Coming off a victory two weeks ago in Singapore, the 28-year-old Lewis won for the seventh time in her LPGA Tour career to end Yani Tseng's 109-week run at No. 1.

The LPGA confirmed previous reports that golfer Natalie Gulbis contracted malaria during the Tour's Asian swing.
While playing in Singapore two weeks ago, Gulbis withdrew with what the Tour reported was flu-like symptoms. At the time Bruce Harmon, Gulbis' instructor, tweeted that both she and South Korean golfer Se Ri Pak, who also withdrew from the tournament before it began, were in the hospital with malaria. The LPGA responded by saying that Pak did not have malaria and that a diagnosis on Gulbis had yet to confirm what Harmon had tweeted. Gulbis' agent also disputed the malaria claim at the time.
