About her 2012 season so far

Creamer is on a quest to be the best
By Beth Ann Baldry - Golfweek

MOBILE, Ala. - Every week on the LPGA tour, there are a handful of players who generate the same handful of questions. Different city (or country), same lingering storylines.

Paula Creamer came into the media center today (despite not having a top-10 this year) at the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic for two reasons:

1) She's Paula Creamer;
2) She won here in 2007.

Creamer was asked off the top to talk about her 2012 season, and she told the handful of reporters in the room that she's not satisfied. Actually, she has been frustrated since 2010, when she failed to follow up that impressive U.S. Women's Open victory at Oakmont with another title. It marked the end of "Why haven't you won a major?" and the beginning of "Why haven't you won since?" More>>

Hopes to break out of funk

Creamer hopes to break out of funk
By Randall Mell - Golf Channel

Paula Creamer will be looking to find a spark in her game when she tees it up in Thursday’s start of the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic in Alabama.

“I feel like I’m kind of stale right now, stagnant with some things,” Creamer said.

Creamer said in a news conference Tuesday at Magnolia Grove’s The Crossing course that she’s working through swing changes she believes are adding power to her driver, but there’s frustration in knowing change can be a painfully slow process. She began making changes to her swing with the driver last year. More>>

On more distance and tightening up with the irons

Paula Creamer Is Looking for More Distance
By Neil Sagebiel - Armchair Golf Blog

PAULA CREAMER IS AFTER WHAT MOST amateur golfers want—more distance. In a story by Neal Reid at LPGA.com, Creamer talked about her work with coach David Whelan to overhaul her driver swing and tighten things up with the irons. Averaging 241 yards per drive last season, the Pink Panther ranked 113th in driving distance on the ladies tour.

“I tend to get flat and hit it on the way down and not on the way up,” Creamer said.

“I’ve really been trying to get some ae distance with that. I feel like, because I’m 5-9 and a pretty strong girl, I should be able to hit it a lot farther than I do. I have a lot of wasted energy in my golf swing, and I’m just trying to be a little bit more efficient with it. More>>

On being a military kid

From military kid to major champion: Creamer's salute to U.S. soldiers
By Karla Villegas Gama, for CNN

(CNN) -- Discipline is a key ingredient in the package required to succeed in the world of professional golf. Paula Creamer has not been found wanting in that department on her journey from military kid to major champion.

The 2010 U.S. Open winner and darling of the LPGA Tour is the daughter of a Navy officer. The 25-year-old has racked up earnings of $9 million in her career so far and has decided the time has come to contribute to the military cause.

Through her charitable foundation Creamer already helps to fund promising young golfers in the U.S. and Mexico -- now she wants to dedicate a large chunk of her time assisting people whose lives pivot around service to their country. More>>

Article from her rookie season in 2005

At 19, Paula Creamer a force in LPGA golf - present and future
By Chris Baldwin -WorldGolf

The multi-colored ribbons in Paula Creamer's hair speak of a 19-year-old's fashion sense. She giggles like a teenager at blanking on a question.

But she talks golf with the focus of a steely, seasoned pro.

No wonder. Creamer is young everywhere but on the LPGA Tour where she competes against 15- and 17-year-old phenoms at the U.S. Open and finds herself second on the money list just a few months after her high-school graduation. More>>
