It was a crazy Sunday afternoon at the U.S. Women’s Open. Annika Sorenstam holed out for eagle on the final hole — the last time she will ever play this major — that sent the gallery into a tremendous roar that only Tiger Woods could match. Too bad that only put Annika at +3 for the tourney. Still a spectacular shot.

Today was Inbee Park’s day. She finished at -9, four shots ahead of the second place finisher. Poor Paula Creamer had a horrible day after being one shot off the lead after day 3. Paula is only 21 years old, so she has time to win her major(s). But if she plays so tight in these majors as she has recently, the comparisons to Sergio Garcia will be made, and justifiably so.

Stacy Lewis, in her first pro tourney, finished a very impressive tied for 3rd, although she did have the lead after day 3 and didn’t play all that well today (still better than Creamer).

With Annika’s retirement and Lorena Ochoa’s lack of the same star power, the LPGA is — unfortunately — in a really bad bind right now with Paula Creamer not delivering as the marquee player. Michelle Wie didn’t even make the cut and it looks like she will be a David Duval, only without ever winning a tournament! Natalie Gulbis won once, but hasn’t made noise since then. Morgan Pressel has potential, but the LPGA really desperately needs Paula Creamer, aka the Pink Panther, to vie for the role that Annika Sorenstam filled so incredibly for the past few years — as the star power for the tour.
