Natalie Gulbis has withdrawn from the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup, the first US event on the 2013 LPGA Tour schedule, as she recovers from malaria. Gulbis became sick at the previous tour event in Singapore, was treated and was medically cleared to fly home, according to IMG, which manages Gulbis.

Gulbis is expected to be back to full strength in three weeks. IMG reports that LPGA doctors have been consulted to make sure that Gulbis is on the appropriate medications. Her prognosis is excellent.

After withdrawing from the Founders Cup, Gulbis has turned her attention to to the Kraft Nabisco Championship, to be played April 4-7.
