    Discharged Bae 'dying to play golf'

    With his stint in the South Korean military now over, two-time PGA Tour winner Sangmoon Bae is eager to turn his attention back to golf.

But her results have declined and U.S. captain Juli Inkster told her that for the first time she wouldn't be playing. Then Jessica Korda withdrew because of a forearm injury, and Creamer was on the team.
