Brittany Lincicome Wins In The Bahamas

Brittany Lincicome took home the first LPGA Tour title of the year at the Pure Silk Bahamas, by beating Lexi Thompson in a playoff.

 
Thompson entered the final round tied with fellow U.S. Olympian Stacy Lewis at 23-under and atop the leaderboard. Gerina Piller, the other American Olympian, was only 1-back at 22-under, with Linimcome rounding out the top-4 at 21-under.

It was Lincicome, however, the only non-Olympian of the bunch, who played the best on Sunday – firing a 5-under 68 to grab a share of the lead with Thompson, and a spot in a playoff.

 
On the very first playoff hole at the Ocean Club, the par-5 18th, Lincicome won it with a birdie against Thompson’s par.

It is the seventh career win for Liniciome, and her first since the 2015 ANA Inspiration.

The Quote

“This whole off‑season, I swear I putted two and a half hours each day, it seemed like. I was just doing non-stop putting drills just trying to get my confidence up, and it showed here. It’s paying off. I’m going to keep working extremely hard and stay confident.”
Brittany Lincicome, Pure Silk Bahamas Champion
