Suzann Pettersen of Norway hits a shot at Mission Hills Hainan in Haikou, on the southern Chinese island of Hainan, on March 8, 2014World number two Suzann Pettersen, back after missing three events with a back injury, resumes her chase of top-ranked Park In-Bee when the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic opens Thursday. South Korean star Park has ruled the rankings for the past 54 weeks but is being chased by Norway's Pettersen and American Stacy Lewis, ranked third -- all seeking their first tour win of the season. Pettersen hurt her back after the LPGA Founders Cup and missed the year's first women's major at Rancho Mirage as well as a tuneup event and last week's LPGA stop in Hawaii, where she was defending champion. "I was trying to make it for Hawaii, but at the same time, I can't rush something that I can't control."

Four-times major winner Ernie Els returns this week to one of his favourite cities, where he shares the alluring nickname of 'The Big Easy,' to make his eighth career start at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. At a PGA Tour event where he has always enjoyed a "good vibe," the smooth-swinging South African lost out to American Jason Dufner in a playoff for the title in 2012, then tied for 15th last year at the TPC Louisiana. "At the forefront of my mind right now is making sure I put all my efforts into trying to produce a better performance at this week's Zurich Classic," Els wrote on his blog. "Pete Dye has always been one of my favourite designers and courses like TPC Louisiana just seem to fit my eye." Els, a 19-times winner on the PGA Tour, will aim to feed off those positive memories in front of supportive fans as he seeks his first victory on the U.S. circuit since the 2012 British Open.

(Reuters) - Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez made his Champions Tour debut in style when he won the Greater Gwinnett Championship by two strokes over Germany's Bernhard Langer in Georgia on Sunday. A week after finishing fourth at the Masters, Jimenez became the 18th player to win in his first start on the senior American circuit and only the third to lead from start to finish in a Champions Tour debut. But the 20-time European Tour winner indicated afterwards that he would focus primarily on his home tour for the rest of the season as he tries to qualify for the Ryder Cup in September. "I'm playing very well and now you don't know what to do, but I need to do my points for the Ryder Cup," Jimenez told the Golf Channel.
