PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Paula Creamer missed the cut Friday in the LPGA Championship after longtime caddie Colin Cann was hospitalized because of back spasms.

It snapped a streak of 39 consecutive made cuts at majors for Creamer, who shot 5-over 77 and finished the two rounds at 6-over 150.

"Probably the hardest thing I've had to do in a long time is come out here without him," Creamer said. "You feel such mixed emotions with everything. I'm not physically hurt, but my brain is on a whole. He's my brother. We've been together 10 years and I cried."

Creamer said Cann broke an ankle at Kingsmill in 2005 during her rookie year, and that was the last time he wasn't on the bag.
