Paula Creamer certainly has a flair for the dramatic.

On the second playoff hole Sunday against Azahara Munoz at the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore, Creamer was faced with a 75-foot putt -- up and over a ridge in the center of a severely sloping green -- that if she could make, would have given her an eagle and an end to a four-year victory drought.

It's the kind of putt anyone would just hope to get close, but Creamer did much more than that. You'll just have to see it for yourself:


"It's one of those putts where if you just get it in the right spot, it's going to fall down," she said. "But I could stand there all day long and putt that and I don't think get it within six, seven feet."

Thank goodness she didn't need to stand there all day long. She just needed one attempt.

Oh, by the way, it's not the first time Creamer's shown the ability to make a long putt under pressure. Just check out what she did one day at the offices of Sports Illustrated:



Nothing but the bottom of the ... glass. And you've got to love the guy who peers out of his cubicle just as the ball rolls by.

Of the two shots, the one in the office might have been the more impressive -- mainly because it's so difficult to determine which direction berber grows. Usually it's towards the break room, so Creamer correctly read that big right-to-left turn at the end.
