"ULTIMATELY, WHAT MAKES A MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP"
Source: A LPGA story by 'Golf World' Magazine's Ron Sirak
A SUCCESS IS THE QUALITY OF GOLF, a star turn by the course, with a little history thrown in for good measure. All three were in attendance a week ago Sunday at the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills C.C. The Dinah Shore Tournament course proved once again it has the BEST closing stretch on the LPGA Tour! A trio of Americans battled head -to- head in the final group all the way to the 72nd hole(when was the LAST time we said that??). And, once they reached that final green, Brittany Lincicome rolled in a four-foot eagle putt for a one-stroke victory over Christie Kerr and Kristy McPherson. It was the first time any player - man or woman - has ever eagled the 72nd hole of a major championshipto win by ONE shot.
Despite solid final arounds from Lindsey Wright (70, to finish 4th at 282), Suzanne Peterson (66), and Meghan Francella (69), the lead never left the final threesome. Kerr, whose 11 LPGA victories and 2007 U.S. Women's Open title made her the most prepared of the three for the final-round pressure, took command with two birdies in the first four holes.
The book on LINCICOME was that she has great talent, but likes fishing as much as golf and both more than practice. While a lot of Americans stepped up at the Kraft Nabisco, it could be that LINCICOME, with a brand new resolve, will be the one with the most additional strides in her future-
IF she just keeps working.
