2003 Spirit Player and 2009 Spirit Captain Paula Creamer is so excited about the RICOH Women’s British Open this week, she’s doing cartwheels. Literally.
Creamer is looking forward to the British Open at The Old Course this week. This is the kind of championship she likes: links golf and she has been playing well and preparing well lately. Her greatest challenge will likely come in the form of another player that is on a roll: Inbee Park. Park is attempting the grand slam this week and according to her colleagues, it will be tough to beat her.
“She’s just been making everything,” Creamer said. “She’s on a roll. I played junior golf with her growing up, and she did the same thing for a while, and she just dominated. Right now she’s hitting it really well and putting herself in good spots, but whatever she looks at, it’s in.”
But Creamer is confident that she can be the player to break the potential streak for Park.
“Of course you want to be that person; that’s what I want to do,” she said. “Of course, I thought Sebonack fit my game really well, but U.S. Opens are so tough because there is such a big difference between morning times and afternoon times the first two days. I didn’t start off too strong, but I won the weekend, and that’s something that I looked at. So yeah, for me, I want that.”
If Creamer is going to be the one who stops Park, she is going to have to do a lot of things right this week, starting at 6:52 AM on Thursday when she tees off in the first round.
Good Luck this week, Paula….from your friends at The Spirit International.
