Creamer hangs on to win Farr

SYLVANIA, Ohio — Paula Creamer shot a 2-over 73 Sunday and did just enough to make a big lead stand, going wire-to-wire to win the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic by two strokes.

Creamer, who captured her seventh career win and her third this season, had worse scores every day after breaking the tournament record with an 11-under 60 in the first round. She followed that with a 65 and a 70 to finish at 16-under 268, two shots better than Nicole Castrale (cass-TRAWL’-ee) who closed fast with a 64.

The 21-year-old Creamer saw her lead drop to a shot when rookie Shanshan Feng — the first exempt player from China to play on the LPGA Tour — pushed her with five birdies through the first 11 holes. But Feng fell back with three straight bogeys down the stretch.

South Korea’s Eun-Hee Ji (YOON JEE), second to Creamer after each of the first three rounds, shot a 72 and was third at 271. Feng had a 69 and was at 272, followed by Karrie Webb who shot a 70 and was at 273.
