Biography:

Sports speaker Paula Creamer, nicknamed the Pink Panther, is one of America’s top women golfers on the LPGA tour, and one of the best in the world. Growing up in a California Country Club in a house overlooking a golf course, Creamer was destined to become a professional golfer. She began golfing when she was 10 years old, and immediately started winning tournaments. During her amateur career, she won 19 national tournaments, and by the time she was 18 she had turned pro. Creamer joined the LPGA Tour in 2005 and quickly made her way to the top.  In her first year on the tour, she became the youngest winner of a multiple-round tournament in LPGA history when she made an impressive 17-foot birdie putt on the final hole of the Sybase Classic. She then went on to rightfully win the LPGA Rookie of the Year Award. However, like any great athlete, her career went through peaks and valleys. Her second year as a pro golfer was plagued with wrist and foot injuries, hindering her performance, but she overcame these obstacles and in 2007 she won two LPGA titles.  The young golfer then hit a peak in 2008 as she won a career-high of four LPGA events, but shortly after she, again, struggled with injury. This time the injury proved to be more serious, and required surgery to repair damaged ligaments and tears in her thumb. Due to the severity of the injury, Creamer was forced to sit out of the beginning of the 2010 season, but she made quite the comeback by winning the U.S Women’s open that same year, just four tournaments after returning from surgery. She went on to dominate the LPGA in the following years winning a total of 10 LPGA tour events, and climbing the ladder to become ranked as high as number 2 in the Women’s World Golf Rankings.

The golf star is known for signature pink outfits and golf bag, which earned her the nickname Pink Panther, and got her personalized pink golf balls from Precept Golf. She is also one of the highest paid players in the LPGA, as well as one of the 10 highest earning female athletes in 2013, and has made several endorsement deals with the companies TaylorMade-adidas, Citizen Watch Co., Ricoh, and Bridgestone Golf. Creamer doesn’t hoard all of that money to herself though. She is active in several charities including The First Tee, which helps benefit junior golfers, and hosts a celebrity event called Paula 4 Kids that benefits the organization. Additionally she frequently appears at youth golf clinics, donates scholarships to her Alma matter the IMG Academy, and has her own foundation that gives aid to junior golfers and military families.
