Shin on the mend


Jiyai Shin's agent has informed Golf Channel that Shin's surgery on her appendix went well and she is recovering in a Springfield, Ill. hospital.

The Rolex Women's World Ranking No. 1 has withdrawn from this week's State Farm Classic and next week's Shoprite Classic. She hopes to return for the LPGA Championship.

Shin had initially asked doctors whether she could play this week's event, but opted for surgery.
