Season Over, Creamer Beats Rawson To Pulp

NGAWire® | 24Nov08

The 2008 LPGA season has come to a close. How did the NGA’s two leading ladies, Paula Creamer and Anna Rawson, fare this season?

In the end, it really wasn’t a fair battle. Creamer, a veteran in her fourth year on tour, dominated the rookie Rawson in every statistical category.
