Karen Stupples habitually waved to the cheering gallery two weeks ago in the first round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Only this time, the English player was working as an on-course announcer for Golf Channel and the cheers were for the players walking behind her on the 18th hole.

The 40-year-old Englishwoman returns to play in the LPGA LOTTE Championship this week in Hawaii. Her enthusiasm for the game recharged by her new broadcasting job, she's making her first tour start since late August.
