Blackjack, 64, and a cheeseburger: Brittany Lincicome creates early dash in Bahamas

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas – Brittany Lincicome craved a cheeseburger after her tournament-record 64. How had she prepared for such a stimulating opener during a Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic? Not how you’d think.

What started out as a proceed to kill time before a restaurants non-stop on Wednesday night during Atlantis Resort incited into a four-hour army during a blackjack list with her husband.

(This after personification in a pro-am, a snooze and swimming with dolphins.) She finished $200 adult during a casino though skipped dinner, holding in usually a few adult beverages and a handful of Goldfish crackers. Thus, a greasy burger hankering.

“Yeah, we was like (John) Daly is my favourite apparently,” pronounced Lincicome of her pre-round prep. “I’m not perplexing it again tonight.”

The two-time vital leader described Thursday’s spin during a Ocean Club as “easy” given that she done scarcely all she looked during on a greens.

It began on a initial hole, when Lincicome bladed her proceed shot into a behind fort and afterwards bloody out to 30 feet. Lincicome typically jots down records after any shot. She asked her caddie Missy Pederson if she should write “long” or “bladed” in her notebook. The span pennyless down laughing. Lincicome afterwards proceeded to empty a extensive standard putt.

“For as most as she comes off as this laid-back impression she’s really competitive” pronounced Pederson.

It wasn’t until she saw a scoreboard on a 18th immature that Lincicome satisfied she had a possibility to get to 10 under. She got forward of herself and walked divided with standard to fire 9 under.

Lincicome had usually 24 putts on a day. Pederson pronounced that when Lincicome goes about her business fast on a greens some-more putts fall. That upbeat dash flows via her game.

On occasion, Lincicome will putt cross-handed. The fallacious actor started off regulating a cross-handed hold usually on right-to-left putts. Then she’d usually use it usually on birdie attempts and not for par. Now, she’ll go to it during anytime.

Lincicome never has been most for a gym or practicing. She’s some-more good to play golf with her father and friends than kick balls. Competing in a Diamond Resorts Invitational progressing this month opposite Champions Tour players and celebrities gave her a good tune-up for a start of a rival season.

While she hasn’t won on debate given 2015, her categorical idea for this deteriorate is to acquire a mark on Juli Inkster’s U.S. Solheim Cup team. To that end, she took in some spinning classes over a offseason and fine-turned her stretch control.
