Seen here at the Guadalajara Country Club in 2010, Creamer has earned almost $9 million since turning professional -- and she invests some of that in scholarships for young players. Getty Images

The 2010 U.S. Open champion has sent Ana an array of golf equipment, including her Pink Panther head cover. Ana Claudia Suarez
Creamer also wrote a letter to Ana's older brother Santiago, encouraging them to achieve their dreams. Claudia Suarez
Julie Steinbauer is another child who has been inspired by Creamer. Such is her infatuation with the world No. 6, she dressed as Creamer for Halloween. Julie Steinbauer
Joe McKenney, third from the left, has also benefited from Creamer's generosity -- she paid for his scholarship at the renowned Leadbetter Golf Academy. McKenney hopes to become a golf course architect. Lexi McKenney
