Paula started playing golf at the age of 10, crediting her mother and father as two of the most influential in her career.
Creamer has garnered the nickname the “Pink Panther” due to her love for the colour and regularly wears the colour on the LPGA Tour.
One of the youngest winners on the LPGA Tour, Creamer was just 18 years, 9 months and 17 days old at the time of her first LPGA Tour victory.
With 10 LPGA victories and a U.S. Women’s Open (2010) title to her name, Paula Creamer has remained one of the most recognisable stars of the women’s game.
A former Curtis Cup and Solheim Cup team member (2005-2013), Creamer was named LPGA rookie of the year in 2005.
Known as a fashionista on and off the course – but admits that Reese Witherspoon is her style icon: “I love the way Reese Witherspoon dresses and carries herself,” admitted the former Women’s U.S. Open winner. “I’m a big fan of her movies.”
Creamer is a fan of American Football team the San Francisco 49ers, Baseball’s the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Celtics basketball team.
Creamer has rallied for a Women’s Masters at Augusta, stating: “I’ve been there, I’ve played there, stayed in Butler’s Cabin.
“I had an awesome time. I think the patrons and everybody would love to have two weeks there, two tournaments. Why wouldn’t you?”
