Brittany Lincicome Returns to LPGA Tour, Now With Two Daughters in Tow | LPGA

by | Nov 9, 2022 | LPGA

Having last appeared on the LPGA Tour at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in June, Brittany Lincicome will return to competition at her home event, the Pelican Women’s Championship presented by Konica Minolta and Raymond James. The Seminole, Florida, native welcomed her second daughter in August and is excited to make her return at an event “right down the street from home,” with both daughters joining along.

“It’s just so cool to get them out here and let them see everybody and see what mommy does for a living,” said Lincicome, who brought little Sophia home to join big sister Emery. “It’s cool to be a professional golfer, but now have two daughters watching what I do and maybe one day they can kind of follow in my footsteps or at least just play for fun.”

With two young girls to manage, Lincicome hasn’t had as much prep time as she wanted to prepare for the event, which has been held at Pelican Golf Club since 2019. And with the little sleep she’s been getting since welcoming her new baby, she’s not sure she’s totally prepared.

“I don’t know if I’m ready. It’s either going to be really good or really bad,” laughed Lincicome. “This baby, I know moms say if your second baby came first you probably would never have that second one, because this one never sleeps. She hates sleep, which is so weird, because I love sleep… Thank God for Starbucks in the mornings to kind of get me going again.”

This season, Lincicome has played in 10 events and recorded one top-10 finish, a T6 result at the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer. The eight-time LPGA Tour victor is looking for her first win 2018 and first since she welcomed her two daughters.

“It’s not the golf side of it that seems to be hard for me… I can hit all the shots. I do all that very well. It’s more the mental side that’s been the hardest for sure, just kind of learning how to win again,” Lincicome said. “Every girl out here knows anybody can swing the golf club. It’s kind of what’s between the ears. I just need to be, I don’t know what I need to do, but I need to fix that. That’s my struggle right now.”
