Paula Creamer misses cut for first time in 82 starts over almost four years
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.
