Paula Creamer wisely takes my advice and wins in Broken Arrow, Ochoa that good sport losers
Paula Creamer once gave this bad golfer a great tip about hands and the swing. During which she no doubt wondered why such a devastatingly handsome man was coming to her for advice - and likely went on to secretly pine for more Baldwin hugs and less caddie hugs (alas, Paula I’m taken).
Anyway, I’ve now finally paid Creamer back.
For one of the best players in women’s golf clearly took my advice after her playoff loss to Annika Sorenstam last Sunday. Like I pleaded, Creamer finally got mad.
And it resulted in a playoff win over Juli Inkster in the SemGroup Championship in the wonderfully named Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. A playoff won with a birdie rather than the hand-me victory Creamer gifted Annika last weekend.
Writing after that Creamer loss, I noted, Part of you cannot help but wish she’d go a little ballistic and demand more. I also observed, Maybe Paula Creamer needs to learn how to be a bad loser, to get her insides torn apart by the prospect of seeing Sorenstam hoisting that trophy, before she can ever be a truly dominant winner.
So what’s Creamer talking about after the win? Finding her anger gene of course.
“I think it made me upset,” Creamer told reporters. “I had so much to overcome from last week. There was no reason to be in a playoff.”
Still not convinced? Check out the Associated Press’ lead on Creamer’s bounce-back W.
Paula Creamer blew another lead late in the final round and found herself in another playoff.
Instead of getting nervous, she got mad at herself.
Jeez, these national golf writers are getting a little desperate for material with WorldGolf.com’s William K. Wolfrum having not predicted anything about Tiger Woods in a few weeks. But I digress.
All the props really need to go to Creamer though. And the brilliant mind who implored her to find some rage.
It makes all those losers … er, readers … who criticized my calling out Creamer for being too placid and demure a sport look … well, like you usually look. Especially, an ex-Marine who I’m now convinced would just meekly offer a good sport “Whatever you say, sir” if someone called him a punk.
Thankfully for her, Paula Creamer doesn’t listen to the Marines. She follows the way of the Baldwin. The few, the proud, the follically gifted. Which guarantees many more victories to come.
Wonder if Lorena Ochoa asked Paula for a hug after her winning streak effectively ended after a 73-74 Thursday and Friday?

is completely asyntactic...
can't wait to see what ol' Alex the USMC has to say about this post.
follically-gifted? 'challenged' is more on point, isn't it oh mighty Bald One? ;)
