who’s your daddy?

So which was the bigger golf story this weekend:

1. Paula Creamer, graduating high school student, winning her 1st LPGA event by sinking a birdie putt on the last hole and becoming the youngest player at 18 years old to win on the LPGA tour in 50 years. See The Golf Blog’s report below.

2. Kenny Perry’s second Colonial victory, which he won going away, by 7 strokes — a tournament that was essentially over by Saturday night and that left CBS in the position of rerunning segments on Perry from two years ago to generate some drama.

My vote is for 1, Paula Creamer. I’m sure some of you will agree. But if you go to websites for The Golf Channel, Golf Magazine, and the golf coverage on SI and ESPN, you’ll find Kenny Perry as the lead story. Only Golf Digest — God bless them — has Paula as the lead. What a shame. The golf media need to stop putting the men first all the time. Even USA Today recognized the significance of Paula Creamer’s victory, putting it as the lead sports story and even putting a trailer on the front page of the entire newspaper.
