Beatriz Recari of Spain hits her tee shot on the fourth hole during the final round of the Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning & O-I on July 21, 2013 in Sylvania, Ohio.

Beatriz Recai made a move in the Rolex Rankings this week moving up eight spots to No. 18 with her win at the Marathon Classic Presented by Owens Corning and O-I.

Recari shot a 17-under 267 for the tournament which was just enough to edge Creamer who was just one stroke behind with a 16-under 268.

“I still can't believe it, because I was so focused for the last two rounds to just keep cool and just focus on my game,” said Recari.  “Because like Paula said, she played amazing for two days.  It was really a competition.  It was like who was going to stick it close and who was going to make a putt.”

Recari and Creamer entered the day tied for the lead at 12-under-par, three shots clear of their competitors.  The two kept themselves separated from the field but could never quite shake each other as they traded birdies throughout the day.  Creamer said the battle certainly had a Solheim Cup feel.
