She’s now won three times on the LPGA Tour and once in Europe.

With the Soleheim Cup matches nearly at hand Rcari, who will be a Cup rookie this year, acknowledged that her barrel with Creamer had a unique feel to it.

Paula Creamer “It totally felt like Solheim Cup for the last two days,” Recari said.  “[Creamer] is a very experienced player in Solheim Cup and I’ll be a rookie.  It was great to play with her, to learn, because she’s so consistent. I said even if she drives it into the rough and doesn’t have a very clear shot, she’s going to leave it very close to the pin.  She’s done every time she was in the rough for the past two days.

In a sense Recari has been overshadowed this season but she isn’t overly concerned about how others perceive her or her abilities.

“All I want to focus is to be the best I can be,” she said, “and I cannot control what other people, how other people think about me.

“Some people are going to love me; some people maybe they don’t value me the way they should value me. You can’t control that.  So all I can do is put a good score out there, get those wins, and the wins speak for themselves.”
