Putting woes haunt Creamer on Day 3 of Wegmans LPGA


PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Paula Creamer’s putter let her down Saturday at the Wegmans LPGA Championship.

Despite hitting 16 greens in regulation, a terrific feat at Locust Hill Country Club, Creamer posted a 1-over-par 73.

“That’s kind of unheard of, especially with how small these greens are,” Creamer said. “You have so many opportunities. There was frustration.”

After missing a 7-foot putt for par at the final hole, Creamer walked away three shots off the lead. She missed a 4-foot birdie chance at the 17th. She took 35 putts overall and felt like she squandered a chance to go low.

“I hit the ball great, I gave myself a lot of opportunities,” Creamer said. “I kind of got in my way with my putter.”
