Isn't it strange that a mentally tough player like Paula Creamer has not challenged for a major on the back nine. Why has a mentally tough player like Paula sometimes gone to the top of major leaderboards and then faltered badly.
The Kraft where she was in the last group but shot herself out of it on the front nine was typical of her play. She hasn't done it in the majors yet.

Stan,

At least she has a couple wins on the LPGA. More than you can say about your failing hero.

Call it mentally tough if you like, or short off the tee. It sounds like Creamer is wishing for conditions that will negate the advantage in length that players like Ochoa, Pettersen, and Lincicome have over her .

Oddly, Jim C has it absolutely right. A controlled, accurate driving course favors Creamer more than a wide-open, bombs-away type course. Wind plays havoc with high-spin, high-trajectory shots.

Creamer is only saying that because she heard Tiggy saying that. Tiggy says that because when the condition is benigh, a lot of players can shoot low scores; but when it is tough, it acts as a filter. Only the truly great players can handle tough condition because it calls for more than just solid golf skills.

The small problem with Creamer's statement is that Tiggy is the best golfer in the world while Creamer is one of the best LPGA players, she does not do anything exceptional.

She couldn't even beat those Kims or Parks from Korea who are a foot shorter than her.
