American Golfer Paula Creamer tasted decent success in her professional career. She is a well-known personality in the world of golf which tends to bring interest towards her personal life amongst her fans. It was believed Paula found her soulmate in the form of Derek Heath, but fate had other plans.
It's been only a couple of months since the couple filed for divorce and thus, Paula's personal life has come up as a matter of intrigue. So, what actually went wrong between the two of them?
Paula Creamer Separated From Husband Of Three Years Derek Heath
The news broke out in March this year that Paula Creamer and Derek Heath are no longer together. She confirmed it to the Golf Channel after returning to the LPGA Tour post surgery that she has separated from her husband.
The Golfer said:
"Derek and I are no longer together. We want to keep it as private as we can, but I am back out here, and I am beyond excited to be back out here."
Since Paula has refused to speak further on her personal life, we can only speculate something must have gone wrong for the pair to part ways. The actual reason has not been revealed to the media yet.
She took a break from her career for six months following her divorce and a surgery on her wrist and made her comeback to the LPGA Tour at the 2018 Bank of Hope Founders Cup.
“I definitely have put a lot of focus and energy in my golf, and I feel great,” Creamer said. “I feel as strong as I’ve ever been, mentally and physically.”
As of now, she is completely focused on her career and has maintained a low key personal life.
