Seven Straight Birdies for Paula Creamer
How would you like to have seven straight birdies to close your round? That's what Paula Creamer did in the first round of the LPGA Tournament of Champions. Creamer's birdie run began on the twelfth hole, and during the skein she birdied three par-4s, two par-3s and two par-5s. Creamer finished with a 67 to share the first-round lead with Meg Mallon.
So: Is Creamer's seven consecutive birdies any kind of record? No. The LPGA Tour record for most consecutive birdies is nine, set by Beth Daniel at the 1999 Philips Invitational Honoring Harvey Penick. And Annika Sorenstam and Mary Beth Zimmerman each reeled off birdie streaks of eight.
But seven straight birdies is pretty great any way you look at it. What's the PGA Tour record?
Rare Double-Eagle on LPGA Tour
That's Momoka Ueda to the right, playing the LPGA Mizuno Classic on Sunday in Japan. And on the swing pictured she holed out an approach shot on a par-5 for a double-eagle.
The albatross happened on the seventh hole, and Ueda hit 3-wood from 228 yards. She went on to win the tournament. Ueda, 21 years old, is now eligible for membership on the LPGA Tour in 2008 because of her victory in the Mizuno.
How rare is Ueda's double-eagle? It is only the 28th albatross in the history of the LPGA Tour, and just the eighth time it's been done on the Japan LPGA (which cosanctioned the Mizuno Classic).
The first double-eagle in LPGA history was made by Hall-of-Famer Marilynn Smith in the 1971 Lady Carling Classic.
