VIDEO: Paula Creamer wins with 75-foot playoff bomb
As we’ve talked about before, golf is a niche sport with a desperate need for superstars to generate anything resembling mainstream attention. This is even more prevalent in women’s golf, where, let’s be honest, not even the golf media pays enough attention to the women’s game, at least when compared to the men’s side. Paula Creamer, despite not winning a tournament since the 2010 U.S. Open, is one of those superstars.
Playing at the LPGA’s HSBC Women’s Champions event this week in Singapore, Creamer found herself in a playoff with Spain’s Azahara Munoz. After squaring the first hole, Creamer had a 75-footer to win the tournament on the second playoff hole. No chance, right?
I guess when you haven’t won in almost four years, and that’s the way you do it, that’s the kind of reaction that it’s going to produce. Awesome stuff.
