PAULA CREAMER THRIVES AT SOLHEIM

The Solheim Cup will be played for the 13th time this week, beginning Friday at the Colorado Golf Club, just outside of Denver. There have been highs and lows, triumph and heartache for both teams through the years, moments the players will never forget. This week, espnW will highlight that history as six Solheim standouts share their favorite memories.

Paula Creamer, United States
Four appearances, 11-3-5 record

All who compete in the Solheim Cup talk about how much they enjoy the atmosphere. But few have thrived in it as much as American Paula Creamer.

She has a stellar record and has been durable, playing in the maximum five matches in three of her four appearances at the event.

"I come from a military background, with both my father and grandfather having been in the service," Creamer said. "And being able to wear red, white and blue and support our country -- there's nothing cooler than that." Read More>>

In must-win situation, Creamer & Lewis deliver for U.S.

PARKER, Colo. – Stacy Lewis and Paula Creamer simply had to put a point on the board. The Americans couldn’t expect to keep their home-soil streak alive with their two best players in the O-fer column. On Saturday morning, Creamer and Lewis paired together and got it done.

A sloppy finish by the Europeans on the 18th hole gave Lewis and Creamer their first point, pumping the American team’s psyche and settling a personal score.

Maybe Lewis needed a little controversy to thrive. She got it in spades on Day 1 when tournament officials admitted to handing out an improper ruling to the European Team, giving Carlota Ciganda a favorable drop and killing any momentum the U.S. had built with a 25-minute delay. Read More>>

Creamer now Solheim veteran, talks playing with Mallon

PARKER, Colo. – Paula Creamer’s first Solheim Cup was Meg Mallon’s last.

Creamer remembers 2005 at Crooked Stick well. She was a 19-year-old newbie on a team with heralded stalwarts like Mallon, Juli Inkster, Rosie Jones and Beth Daniel. The Americans won that cup, although Mallon ended up in the hospital afterward because of a racing heartbeat that nearly reached 300 beats per minute. Read More>>

Paula Creamer out to heal hurt of Solheim Cup

IT ALL began to unravel for the USA when Catriona Matthew trounced Paula Creamer by 6 and 5 in the top singles match at Killeen Castle.

After a thrilling final day turnaround and the most gripping finale you could imagine, Europe went on to win the Solhiem Cup by 15-13 in Ireland two years ago.

On the eve of Europe’s defence of the cup in Colorado, Creamer is still hurting. “That’s Sunday was one of the toughest things I have ever had to go through,” said the 27-year-old who drips red, white and blue.

“It was such a tough loss for me. I didn’t have my A game that day, Catriona played awesome and I felt like I had let the team down. Being first out in singles you have the lead job and that’s to get a point up there on the board as soon as you can. I’m ready to do that this week.” Read More>>

'Pink Panther' finds inspiration in overcoming adversity

(CNN) -- Success and fame came easily to golfer Paula Creamer, but this year an agonizing thumb injury threatened to end her short but glittering career on the LPGA Tour.

The 24-year-old started her sixth year as a professional with an already impressive record of nine LPGA Tour wins and three appearances in the Solheim Cup teams event -- not to mention her reputation for wearing iconic outfits, hence her nickname "Pink Panther." Read More>>
