Paula Creamer is engaged.
Creamer, 27, whose nine LPGA titles include the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open, is engaged to Derek Heath, a 33-year-old pilot from Newport Beach, Calif. Creamer made the announcement Monday via Twitter with a photo of her with her fiancé. She later posted an image (see below) showing how Heath proposed.
The couple met through their parents. Paula’s father and Derek’s father flew together in the Navy and both became commercial airline pilots. They remain close friends. Paula and Derek met at the Kia Classic in March. Derek, an Air Force Academy graduate, flies C-17s, large military transports, for the Air Force. He recently moved into active reserve status. A wedding date has yet to be announced.
