Paula Creamer Gets the Spirit

Isn't Paula Creamer a little young to be captaining a United States team in an international team golf competition? No! No she's not! I can say that unequivocally because, in fact, this week Paula is captaining such a team - the American squad in the The Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship.

The Spirit is played annually at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas. This year 20 countries are represented, each sending two amateur men and two amateur women. Individual winners are crowned, but so are Team Champions (combined scores of a team's men and women) along with Women's Team and Men's Team champions.

Creamer was 17 when she played in the 2003 Spirit; she's 23 now as the captain. On her American team are Alexis Thompson, Jennifer Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Ben Martin.

Among the players who've caught The Spirit in the past are Lorena Ochoa, Minea Blomqvist, Na Yeon Choi, Paige Mackenzie, Jane Park, Hee Young Park and Yani Tseng. And lots of guys who are now notable pros, too. Pretty impressive for a tournament that has only been around since 2001.

By the way, the photo above of Creamer is from one of her past calendars for Golf Digest Japan. See more Paula Creamer pics here to view others.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.

Charley Hull IG Photo Roundup

Charley Hull isn't just busy on the golf course these days, but also on Instagram where she frequently posts fun, fetching photos. Including bikini selfies. And the entire golf world says in unison, "Thanks, Charley!" The 25-year-old Charley, by the way, is having a solid 2021 LPGA season, although she's still seeking that victory. As this is written, Hull is No. 38 in the world rankings. Her best LPGA finish so far in 2021 is tied for eighth at the LPGA Drive On Championship in March, but she also has finishes of 14th, 15th and 21st. All the following photos are ones Charley posted on her Instagram account, @charley.hull .
