Paula Creamer back on LPGA Tour after five-week hiatus

The LPGA Tour moves to suburban Montgomery, Alabama this week, the city of Prattville to be exact, for the Navistar Classic.

One of its most popular golfers will be back to get back on the winning side of things.

Earlier this year, Creamer won the U.S. Women’s Open, her first major win and the best highlight of which has been a very tough year.

Creamer and her still-healing thumb are getting ready to tee-off and play in the $1.3 million LPGA Navistar Classic for the first time, starting Thursday on the Senator Course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Capitol Hill. The course is a 6,607-yards long and a par-72.

She is coming off a five-week break that included several weeks off the course which caused her to skip the Northwest Arkansas Championship nearly a month ago. Her best finish since the U.S. Open was a tie for 15th at the Canadian Women’s Open.

The tournament in Prattville will have a new winner in 2010, because Lorena Ochoa, who retired in May won both of the last two trips to Alabama.
