Paula Creamer continued an incredible streak last week when she finished T4 at the U.S. Women’s Open at Sebonack. The 26-year-old’s worst finish in the Women’s Open is a T19 in 2005 in her professional debut for the tournament that she won in 2010.

Creamer also surpassed $10 million in earnings with the finish ($10,096,567), which is eighth on the all-time career money list. She reached eight figures in 194 career starts, less than anyone on the eight-figure list except for Lorena Ochoa (175 starts).

But Creamer’s ultimate goal currently is to get a win, a void on her resume since the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open victory at Oakmont. Her current play is up to earning a win. She has made 56 consecutive cuts, tied with Karrie Webb for the longest current streak. Additionally, Creamer ranks second in Rounds in the 60s (21), third in Greens in Regulation (74 percent) and fifth in Rounds Under Par (29).

The immediate future offers great possibilities for Creamer:

  • Manulife Financial, July 11-14: Creamer shot four rounds under par in the Canadian tournament’s debut last year and finished T14.
  • Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning and O-I, July 18-21: In 2008, Creamer birdied nine of the last 11 holes of the first round to complete a back-nine 27 and an 11-under-par 60 en route to a victory at Highland Meadows Country Club in Sylvania, Ohio.
  • Ricoh Women’s British Open, Aug. 1-4: Creamer has four career top-10s in the major including a T7 in 2007 at St. Andrews, this year’s site.
  • The Solheim Cup, Aug. 13-18: Creamer is second in the U.S. Team rankings behind Stacy Lewis and is assured of making the squad to face Europe in Colorado.
  • The Evian, Sept. 12-15: Creamer won in France in her debut in 2005 (her second career LPGA victory). That event has ramped up this year since it will be the fifth and final major championship of 2013.
