Paula Creamer returns to a familiar and favorite spot playing a bit like it’s the first time because she’s carrying a child. The 2005 Amundi Evian champion revealed on social media last Sunday that she and fiancé Shane Kennedy, a retired baseball player, are expecting.

Creamer, who opened with a 4-over 75, said she’s definitely lost quite a bit of distance off the tee and had trouble catching her breath on the Evian Resort’s hilly terrain.

“It’s incredible,” said Creamer, “you feel like you’re swinging hard and hitting it hard and it goes nowhere.”

The 34-year-old returned to the tour earlier this year in May at the Pure Silk Championship at Kingsmill, her first start since October 2019. The 10-time LPGA winner said she needed the extra time to let her left wrist and thumb injuries heal.

“I feel really good,” said Creamer. “It’s been exciting now that everybody knows and to be able to celebrate, which is nice to be able to do it with your friends. I actually don’t have to feel like I’m sucking in everywhere I go. I can actually say ‘Yes, I am pregnant.’ ”

Creamer said she’d like to play in several of the U.S.-based events later this fall at stops in Arkansas and New Jersey. Of course, it all depends on how she feels, not to mention how far she’s hitting it off the tee.

And after her new bundle of joy arrives?

“I definitely want to come back,” she said. “I have every intention of coming out and playing.”
