    Creamer (once again) thrives on Solheim stage

    WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – The Solheim Cup, more than any other event, makes Paula Creamer summon her best. The red, white and blue. The crowds. Her team. Her partner. Creamer lives to play in this event. Two years ago in Germany, Creamer was a questionable captain’s selection. She delivered a 2-2 performance.

    McIlroy commits to play The Northern Trust

    Less than a week after hinting that he might be done for the remainder of 2017, Rory McIlroy on Friday committed to play next week's Northern Trust, the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. McIlroy is the postseason's defending champion, after taking both the Tour Championship and the FedExCup in dramatic fashion last fall. The news that he'll tee it up in the first playoff event is only surprising in light of what he offered following his T-22 finish last Sunday at the PGA Championship. “I don’t know what I’m going to do,” he said, referring to his upcoming schedule. “You might not see me until next year.
