We witnessed the end of an era Saturday at the Kingsmill Championship, where Paula Creamer missed the cut – for the first time since August of 2010.
Creamer, who recently ended a four-year winless streak at the HSBC Women's Champions, saw her almost-four-year cuts-made streak end when she carded rounds of 73-72 at Kingsmill. The cut was made Saturday morning because a long weather delay meant the second round didn't finish on Friday.
Coming into Kingsmill, Creamer led the LPGA Tour with 82 tournaments in a row without missing a cut. The last time she missed, according to the LPGA, was the 2010 Safeway Classic.
"Yes I missed the cut .. just couldn't get the job done .. 82 in a row not too shabby," she tweeted.
The LPGA didn't indicate who takes over as the current cuts-made leader. The longest current cuts-made streak on the PGA Tour is 33 by Adam Scott.
The end of Creamer's streak also puts into perspective the LPGA Tour's all-time record of 299 straight cuts made by Jane Blalock. On the PGA Tour, the cuts-made record is 142 straight by Tiger Woods.
In the aftermath of her MC, the Pink Panther indulged in a little "me time." A few hours after she walked off the course, she tweeted out a couple of photos – one of her getting a little acupuncture on her legs, and another showing her getting a pedicure. And, she said, she's planning to be right back in action at next week's Airbus Classic in Alabama.
