Creamer, Park long for more rough
Question of the Day
“It’s a shame it’s not 5 inches,” Creamer said. “Definitely, you can hit a 5-iron out of the rough if you do hit it in there. The greens, I’m sure, will get faster as the weekend comes around. They’re so green. I’ve never seen this golf course so green and lush.”
The rough is only 2-3 inches, taking away a big advantage for straight hitters.
“This golf course, I think, definitely needs more rough,” Park said. “It’s a major. We’re used to seeing narrow fairways on this golf course. I still feel there is a rough still, but it’s not as long. Even if you’re in the rough, you can go at the green. Last few years you couldn’t go at the green. You just had to punch it out.
“Obviously, how I’ve been striking the ball, I really want it to be longer. … It opens up a little bit more to the field. A lot more players can win now.”
“I get to show my kids that one day,” Creamer said. “When they say, ‘I’m not cool,’ I can say, ‘I did this, though.’”
The victory was her 10th on the tour and first since the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open.
STUCK IN SECOND: Third-ranked Stacy Lewis has five runner-up finishes since winning the Women’s British Open in August.
“I definitely would have liked some more wins, especially in the last six months or so, but I feel like I’m moving in the right direction,” said Lewis, the 2011 Kraft Nabisco winner for the first of her eight LPGA Tour titles.
The Texan has finished in the top 10 in 15 of the last 16 tournaments she has completed. After her top-10 streak ended at 13 with a tie for 40th in Singapore, she tied for second two weeks ago in Phoenix and tied for sixth last week in Carlsbad.
“Last week, I didn’t feel like I played my best golf, but I still had a chance going into Sunday,” Lewis said. “That’s what I’m really proud of.”
She has been thinking about the Kraft Nabisco for months.
“Probably in December, as soon as the year is over,” Lewis said. “I work all offseason to get ready for the majors and to be peaking at the right time, to get ready for this week.”
