Creamer Wins Third Tournament This Year

By  | 

SYLVANIA, Ohio -- Paula Creamer shot a 2-over 73 Sunday and
did just enough to make a big lead stand, going wire-to-wire to win
the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic by two strokes.
Creamer, who captured her seventh career win and her third this
season, had worse scores every day after breaking the tournament
record with an 11-under 60 in the first round. She followed that
with a 65 and a 70 to finish at 16-under 268, two shots better than
Nicole Castrale who closed fast with a 64.
The 21-year-old Creamer saw her lead drop to a shot when rookie
Shanshan Feng - the first exempt player from China to play on the
LPGA Tour - pushed her with five birdies through the first 11
holes. But Feng fell back with three straight bogeys down the
South Korea's Eun-Hee Ji, second to Creamer after
each of the first three rounds, shot a 72 and was third at 271.
Feng had a 69 and was at 272, followed by Karrie Webb who shot a 70
and was at 273.
