And the award for most animated goes to … Paula Creamer!
Paula Creamer was a little late to snag an Oscar nomination for Sunday night’s awards show, but her performance after winning the LPGA event in Singapore certainly deserves a nod for animation.
Creamer ended her nearly 4-year-old victory drought by sinking a 75-foot, eagle putt on the second playoff hole against Azahara Munoz to capture the HSBC Women’s Champions. This was no time to play it cool.
Even after she had time to compose herself and send out a tweet, the enthusiasm was still there.
Thank you everyone for the awesome wishes! I will never forget this win or that putt! Words can't describe what I am feeling! #perseverance
