HSBC WOMEN'S CHAMPIONS


March 2, 2014


Paula Creamer


SINGAPORE

Q.  Never been a more dramatic playoff?
PAULA CREAMER:  I'm shaking.  Oh, my gosh, this has been such a long time coming and I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for Colin, my caddie, my best friend, he's been there through it all.
We've had such a good last seven months working on what we've been doing and obviously a bit of luck going in on that one.  Aza hit a great shot in there and she's such a great competitor, as well.  When that happens, there's nothing you can do.

Q.  You must have had nerves of steel in regulation play.
PAULA CREAMER:¬† I did.¬† I definitely tested myself coming down the stretch, that's for sure.¬† I had to make a bunch of 6‑ , 7‑footers, but I just kept grinding and kept on just doing what Colin and I were planning on doing.¬† And you know, it was fun playing with Morgan and Teresa.¬† It was nice playing with one of your best friends and kind of kept me calm out there.
You know, it was, it was a grind all day and like I said, it's been a long time coming.

Q.  You went for the green in two, can you talk us through that?
PAULA CREAMER:¬† It reminded me of a putt at Solheim Cup that I had.¬† Just get it in the right spot it would fall down‑‑ but I could stand there all day long and putt that.¬† I finally hit the fairway in the playoff‑‑ I was in a playoff a couple years ago and I refused to go to eight, nine more holes so I was going to try to end it.

Q.  You were on the phone a second ago, who were you trying to call?
PAULA CREAMER:¬† I was calling my mom and dad.¬† They have obviously seen it all.¬† Derek was at the second one‑‑ we're not married yet so my dad would have been upset if I called Derek first.¬† It's pretty neat when you can share it with everybody.
Whatever call it was‑‑ I called them actually before the playoff, too, and they just said, stay calm, be happy you and don't have to prove anything.¬† Just go out there and play some golf.

Q.  Good to be back in the winner's circle again?
PAULA CREAMER:  Oh, it feels so good, oh, my goodness, I can't tell you how good it really does feel.  This is a huge win and it's a lot of hard work.
