Paula Creamer continues pushing for women's Masters

By Agency

Paula Creamer thinks Augusta National can be the home to two Masters tournaments, including one for female players.
"I've been there, I've played there, stayed in Butler's Cabin," said Creamer on Tuesday ahead of the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic.
"I had an awesome time. I think the patrons and everybody would love to have two weeks there, two tournaments. Why wouldn't you? Hopefully, we will see something change and happen."
Under chairman Billy Payne, Augusta National has done more to simultaneously build the Masters brand and contribute to the game's expansion in Asia and Latin America, as well among junior American golfers with the Drive, Chip and Putt contest. Creamer sees no reason why Augusta National can't do the same for women's golf.
"It's 2015. I think Augusta and the Masters and everybody with that event, they want to grow the game so badly," Creamer said. "That's what it is, about growing the game and giving people opportunities. The Chip and Putt, all of that for the kids to be able to come out there. There's no reason why we can't do that in women's golf. We're just as much a part of growing the game."
