Paula Creamer a Winner


The Women’s U. S. Open was a joy to watch as the gals scrambled to score on a tough golf course at Oakmont, Pennsylvania. She out lasted all other players as being the only one under Par. She was fun to watch as we all knew of her past surgery on her thumb. She had taken four months off to let her thumb heal and as she says it was the hardest thing to do. She tried to pass the time to attend the Masters as a spectator. She now has won a Major women’s event so we can look for more winnings from her in the future once she lets that thumb heal.

I only saw her grimace once on a long shot on a par five hole else she played very smooth and kept her head in the game. She limited herself to 40 practice strokes before each round to protect her thumb. She had it wrapped so you know she had to concentrate extra hard to work through any pain it might have given her. Paula is only 23 years old and from Pleasanton, California it was nice to see the interview of her father who was watching her every step of the way.

I was interested in the other players too as Christina Kim was playing well and Christie Kerr the number one players of the LPGA made a move up at the Open but soon bogies got in the way. There were a couple of great shots by Jalai Shin as I love to watch her play, she is short and square but can she every hit that ball. She had been in the hospital for an appendectomy a few weeks ago and was the number one player in the LPGA. The South Korean girls are all very good golfers and Alexis Thompson the 15 year old gal from Florida sure came through with some saving golf shots. (Read my review on the Thompson family) She was the second longest hitter of the tournament but had trouble on the green with several three putts but tied for 10th so that is very good for such a young golfer.

I was upset with NBC on the Saturday coverage, just after the leaders teed off and after a few holes they dropped coverage and went so some other program. What a bummer to stop coverage after the leaders are just getting started. Anyway the television coverage on Sunday was covered to the very end with even the hugs all around to caddie and family and friends. An American win is great for American golfers to work hard and keep that winning edge for the rest of the season.

Congratulation to Paula it was a great win for her and you made us proud to watch you play with the pain from your thumb surgery. Playing through pain is difficult and you fought through it in amazing fashion. Good Luck in the remaining tournaments this year you know you can win through pain and your talent will pull you through.
