Paula Creamer hadn't won on the LPGA tour since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open.

So her next victory was going to be special no matter what.

But "special" doesn't even begin to describe the way Creamer won her 10th LPGA title Sunday at the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore.

On the second hole of a playoff against Azahara Munoz, Creamer faced a 75-foot eagle putt on the 18th green for the victory.

Rather than play it safe and go for the tie, Creamer went for it. Her putt curled across the green and rolled slowly down the slope and right into the hole.

“It's one of those putts where if you just get it in the right spot, it's going to fall down,” she said. “But I could stand there all day long and putt that and I don't think get it within six, seven feet.”

Creamer followed a shot for the ages with a celebration to match, as she ran across the green and then fell to her knees and pounded the ground while laughing and crying.

Watch it all unfold in the video above.
