This weekend Paula Creamer is one of the 12 U.S women in Ireland hoping to take down the European team in the Solheim Cup. This tournament, held every 2 years, has been won by the Americans in each of the last 4 meetings. Creamer is 3-0 in singles matches and has only lost 2 times in 14 total matches. If you want to watch this you better prepare to change your sleeping pattern. Creamer started the tournament winning both of her team match ups. Her next match is early Saturday morning when she teams up with Cristie Kerr to take on Catriona Matthew and Azahara Munoz.
Killeen Castle, home of the Solheim Cup has over 7,000 trees. Playing around trees can be especially tough. If you want to learn how to handle the threat of trees watch this video by an IMG Academy Leadbetter golf program Golf instructor.
