Continued: Beatriz Recari hits big putts down stretch, holds off Paula Creamer to win Marathon Classic

Creamer laid up with a wedge. Recari then pulled out a hybrid and uncharacteristically went for the green, pulling it slightly to the left where it ended up in the rough. Creamer's wedge ended up 12 feet away and Recari skied a flop shot that ended up half that distance from the hole. Both missed their putts, however.

"In all that golf out there, it's kind of funny how it all comes down to the wire," Creamer said.

At the par-5 closing hole, both misfired on their third shots, Creamer's running through to the fringe and Recari's flying over the green to light rough.

Recari chipped to 5 feet past the hole before Creamer missed her 20-foot attempt to tie it.

With the tournament on the line, Recari then stroked in her par putt for her second victory of the season. In March, she won the Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif., beating I.K. Kim with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.

"I was definitely shaky on the last putt," she said. "I knew I had to make it to win and avoid a playoff. A playoff is always nerve-racking."

Just like the best on tour, she rolled it in.
