Paula Creamer hadn't won on the LPGA Tour since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open. However, if she sank the 75-footer she was standing over, she would break that drought and take the 2014 HSBC Women's Champions.
It took a while, but the eagle putt found the bottom of the cup, Creamer ran around like a nut and she defeated Azahara Munoz for the title.
A year later, Creamer still has a smile on her face about that putt.
“I never will get tired of that,” Creamer said Tuesday.
She's been reminded of the putt in practice rounds this week. Creamer has even taken a few stabs at trying to make the putt again. The closest she's come is 3 feet. Even if it was a one-in-a-thousand moment, Creamer loves getting to remember that moment and what it meant to her.
Creamer said, “It was neat to see a plaque on the 18th fairway, and go up there and kind of look at the green and just remembering the moment."
Then on Wednesday at a pre-tournament gala, HSBC set up another 75-foot for Creamer and several of the big names in the event. What do you know? Creamer knocked it in again.
