And you get a car! Four LPGA players awarded Kias


NAPLES, Fla. – Morgan Pressel, Stacy Lewis, Brittany Lincicome and Paula Creamer were all handed the keys to Kia K900 luxury sedan automobiles in an LPGA awards program Wednesday evening at the CME Group Tour Championship.

They were presented the cars as winners of Kia Performance Awards.

Pressel won the Kia Community Assist Award, given to the LPGA player who makes an exceptional contribution to charity and community programs. Pressel, whose mother, Kathy Krickstein-Pressel, died of breast cancer, formed the Morgan Pressel Foundation to aid in the battle against the disease.

Her foundation has raised $3.5 million over the last seven years for the cause, with her Morgan & Friends Fight Cancer Golf Tournament raising $600,000 this past year. Her work funded creation of the Morgan Pressel Center for Cancer Genetics at Boca Raton (Fla.) Regional Hospital and the purchase of the Kathy Krickstein-Pressel Mammovan, which takes start-of-the-art digital mammography equipment directly into communities in Palm Beach County in Florida.

Lewis won the Kia Drive to the Top award for most top-10 finishes in 2014. In 27 starts, Lewis racked up 17 top-10 finishes, three of them victories.

Lincicome won the Kia Power Drive award as the longest driver on tour this year based on average driving distance. She averaged 271.56 yards per drive.

Creamer won the Kia Most Compelling Performance Award, an award decided by an online vote of fans. Creamer won for her dramatic 75-foot eagle putt that won the HSBC Women’s Champions in a playoff earlier this year.
