Paula Creamer didn’t wait long to grab back that distinction, based on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings. She leaped back over Cristie Kerr in this week’s rankings.
If you’re into this debate, the argument has been between Creamer and Kerr for two seasons now with Angela Stanford deserving strong mention. Creamer, 21, was the highest ranked American woman in the world for 72 consecutive weeks until Kerr, 31, won the Michelob Ultra Open two weeks ago. With a second-place finish at the LPGA Corning Classic on Sunday, Creamer climbed back up to No. 3 in the world rankings with Kerr No. 4 and Stanford No. 7.
Creamer has yet to win this year, but she’s zeroing in. In her last three starts, she has finished second (Japan’s Salonpas Cup), tied for third (Sybase Classic) and tied for second (Corning).
