Day 336: Paula Creamer's Amazing Putt.

So it's March. This is officially the time when I start to really hate winter. This is when I cry, uncle! and declare my utter hatred for being cold. I'm over dressing in layers every day to combat the frigid temperatures, I'm over paying buckets to heat my house, and I'm over tiptoeing around my driveway so I don't crack my skull open on the ice. And despite my hatred for hot weather, I'm longing for spring and green grass right now.

Plus, I'm excited to play golf. Wait, scratch that—I'm totally pumped to play golf. I've got my sights on a brand new golf bag and some snazzy new kicks and I'm ready to hit the links. I'm not sure why I'm so excited. It's not like I magically got awesome over the winter. Although in my head, I've gained 30 yards on my drive and my short game is unstoppable. But what's in my head and what actually happens on the course are two completely different animals. I might still suck but I'm going to look good doing it!

Now here's something that will get you giddy about playing! It's been a long time since LPGA star, Paula Creamer, has won a tournament—not since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open. She has played in 79 tournaments since then and finally won this weekend in Singapore. But how she won was a thing of beauty. In a playoff, she drained an ugly, hilly 75-foot putt to take the top prize.

Now I'm pretty realistic in my golfing abilities and making a putt that long, under those circumstance, will never happen to me. But oh my, even if it did and I wasn't playing for the top prize on the pro tour, it would be a-friggin-mazing! And I would be talking about it for the rest of my life!
