Creamer two back at Kingsmill after Saturday 66

RSS

She won't be in the final group on Sunday, but Paula Creamer put herself in position for her 11th LPGA victory with a 5-under 66 Saturday at the Kingsmill Championship.

Creamer made four birdies and an eagle against a single bogey and played her final four holes 2 under to get within two shots of leader Perrine Delacour.

"I actually did not hit the ball very well at all ... I have hardly hit any greens today," Creamer said. "But that's what you got to be. You have to have a good short game and be able to bail yourself out at times.

"My putter was hot and I gave myself some really good looks for par, even thought I had to save them. It was a crazy back nine, that's for sure."

Creamer's last victory came at last year's HSBC Women's Champions, when she sank a 75-foot eagle putt for victory in a playoff against Azahara Muñoz. On Sunday, the 10-year LPGA veteran will be trying to chase down Delacour, a 21-year-old from France who has made just one cut in seven starts this year, and Alison Lee, a 20-year-old rookie.

"You want to have an opportunity to win," Creamer said. "Playing in a final group or the last two groups, that's always fun. It's good to have my game where I want it to be. I have a lot of confidence, even though got to go work on some things, but this is fun."
