Paula Creamer made a 75-foot eagle putt on the second hole of a playoff with Azahara Munoz to win the HSBC Women’s Champions for her first LPGA Tour title since the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open.
Creamer’s downhill putt curled right to left across the 18th green. The American ran across the green, fell to her knees and put her head on the ground, laughing and pounding the grass.
Creamer closed with a 3-under 69 to match Munoz at 10-under 278 on Sentosa’s Serapong Course in Singapore. Munoz, from Spain, shot a 70. Australia’s Karrie Webb was a stroke back in third. She blew a 3-stroke lead on the back nine, bogeying three of the last six holes. Creamer has 10 LPGA Tour titles.
England’s Ross Fisher won the Tshwane Open in South Africa for his fifth European Tour title, closing with a 2-under 70 for a 3-stroke victory.
Fisher finished at 2-under 268 at the Els Club at Copperleaf. South Africa’s Danie van Tonder and Northern Ireland’s Michael Hoey tied for second. Van Tonder shot 66, and Hoey had a 68.
