But there's more to Paula than a solid record. She's outgoing and likable, and she's now a Golf Digest Playing Editor. Here's our announcement:
NEW YORK, NY -- Golf Digest has signed 2010 U.S. Women's Open champion and LPGA star Paula Creamer as an exclusive playing editor. She will provide bylined instruction and feature content for the magazine on a regular basis. Golf Digest Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Jerry Tarde made the announcement Wednesday.
"We are delighted to have Paula join our premier stable of playing editors," said Tarde. "Our goal in every issue is to offer our readers insight from the best and brightest in the industry, and Paula Creamer is one of the LPGA's most popular and influential players."
Creamer, 25, has won 11 professional titles, including nine on the LPGA Tour. She has been ranked as high as No. 2 in the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings and is undefeated in three years of singles play in the Solheim Cup. During her rookie year in 2005, Creamer, then 18, became the second-youngest winner in LPGA Tour history after capturing the Sybase Classic the week prior to her high school graduation. That victory also made her the youngest-ever winner of a multiple-round event. After also winning the Evian Masters that same year, Creamer easily won Rookie of the Year honors.
"I am thrilled to join the playing editorial staff. I have been an avid reader of Golf Digest ever since I started playing this great game," said Creamer. "It is truly an honor to now be associated with the men and women who bring us exciting and insightful golf content every month. I am looking forward to contributing and sharing my experiences."
As a Golf Digest playing editor, Creamer will provide instruction tips and articles for Golf Digest and GolfDigest.com, including regular "Paula Tips" in the Golf Digest Woman section of the magazine and online.
