Nats & Se Ri in hospital with malaria.
Get well and our thoughts for a speedy recovery and well being to 2 LPGA stars.

Malaria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

could they have caught it in Thailand?

LPGA ‏@lpga 3 hrs
Se Ri Pak withdrew this week and is currently experiencing flu-like symptoms. Contrary to reports, she does not have malaria.

I don't know. Natalie says she talks to Butch daily so you would think he would know but the LPGA tweet is more resent and after the one you posted they tweeted two about Nat. One saying she was having tests as a precaution and another saying they are in contact with her. No mention of Malaria. If those links posted above were Lincicome talking about it, she deleted them because the links don't work and they don't appear on her time line.

Rough couple weeks in the LPGA, 5 car pile up involving 3 big name players then two big names end up in Hospital the following week.

Praying it works out for all. I have met Nat several times and she is the sweetest person ever. I am glad it isn't her back again but I hope the malaria reports are premature and wrong.

LPGA tweeted again denying malaria rumors.

Said that Pak is hospitalized with flu like illness and Gulbis is being evaluated. Specifically said all other reports are not true.

Guessing that they did a routine test for malaria which according to the Wikipedia article 3putt posted is SOP in areas where malaria exists. Testing quickly morphed into a diagnosis through the hyper-acceleration of social media.

The article says that the incubation period for malaria is at least 10 days. SeRi withdrew around Tuesday so it's unlikely she contracted malaria in Thailand.

The LPGA says its not Malaria so I trust that. Natalie was posting pics of herself after a work out on the roof of her hotel a few days ago. So she may be it came on quickly. There are a lot of Crazy flu's in Asia so hopefully she is getting the treatment she needs.

Baldry said Se Ri has flown back to Korea to rest. Has cold and body ache.

Natalie is still sick in Singapore. No word if she is hospitalized or resting in her hotel.
