GALLOWAY, NJ – Brittany Lincicome competed with a second consecutive four-under-67 at Seaview on Saturday, and she finished her round with a birdie on par-5 18th.

However, she got some difficult news shortly after the round when she revealed on social media that her 91-year-old grandmother had died just as Lincicome finished her second round.

Lincicome said she was going to quit the tournament because her grandmother wanted to. She had some support for her family on Sunday as her daughter Emery was supporting her mother.

“She’s a great cheerleader. She loves to be outside and doesn’t beep all the time. Most two-year-olds can’t be silent for that long. But she loves golf and loves to watch mom play golf so it’s great, ”Lincicome said on Saturday.

Lincicome played well despite the difficult circumstances, finishing the week two-under-69 to finish in seventh place with a draw, four shots behind Champion Celine Boutier.
