Paula Creamer " data-medium-file="https://usatgolfweek.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/paula-creamer.jpg? w=300" data-large-file="https://usatgolfweek.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/paula-creamer.jpg? w=1000" /In the seven years that has followed Paula Creamer’s win at the U. Women’s Open at Oakmont, her results have been erratic. What made you decide to change irons at this point in the season?
She won the 2014 HSBC Women’s Champions, and she has 101 career top-10 finishes, but she has failed to earn a top-10 this season. I have never been a person who is known for changing things if they are not broken, but technology these days is just getting so much better.
Date of birth: August 5, 1986Place of birth: Mountain View, California Nickname: "Pink Panther" - because she always wears pink. And, playing on a sponsor exemption, Creamer placed second at the LPGA Tour's Shop Rite Classic, just one stroke behind winner Cristie Kerr.
She sometimes uses a pink golf ball, and also has a Pink Panther headcover for her driver. Creamer played 10 LPGA Tour tournaments as an amateur in 2003-04, and in five of them finished inside the Top 20.
And did we mention that she’s a professional athlete, not a professional model (though she could have fooled us) and that her “week off” was anything but that.
At 29 and happily married—in 2014, to a great guy—Creamer is more than a decade into her journey as a touring pro, able to look forward to more than just golf, and able to look back on an already accomplished career.
In eight LPGA starts this year Creamer missed the cut three times and failed to finish higher than T-30. After I changed to a (Taylor Made) 2017 M1 driver this year, which is a really good match for me, I started looking at my irons. w=1000" class="size-full wp-image-777772536" src="https://usatgolfweek.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/m1-iron-lede.jpg? w=1000&h=664" alt="Taylor Made M1 irons " width="1000" height="664" srcset="https://usatgolfweek.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/m1-iron-lede.jpg?
The sound is great, and they go through the grass really awesome.A California girl, Paula Creamer took up the sport at age 10 and quickly developed into a top player at the junior level. Creamer's first significant notice among the greater golf world - outside of junior golf - started coming in 2004 when she was 17. Ready to move up to the professional ranks, Creamer entered the LPGA's Q-School at the end of 2004 and won it by five shots. but not before both had selected her as the top amateur of 2004.Like her peer Morgan Pressel, Creamer went on to win 11 American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) titles. Creamer had a great LPGA rookie season in 2005, winning twice, posting 11 Top 10s and finishing second on the money list.Words Reade Tilley Photography Della Bass For what it’s worth, Paula Creamer’s body language is just fine.Someone on social media—we’re not naming names—said that it wasn’t and that if she smiled more on course her putting would improve (oh, so the trick to putting! But after watching the LPGA Tour star move from golfer to supermodel to businesswoman to wife to friend to charming new acquaintance within the space of a few hours—effortlessly, and without losing her genuine smile—we think she’s pretty much amazing as she is, especially considering that our photo shoot wasn’t her first of the week.
