Correspondent Hoon Kwon = Brittany Lincicum (USA), who won 8 wins including 2 major championships on the LPGA Tour, participated in the second part of the tour, the Epson Tour, and drew attention.
Lincicum played the first round of the Epson Tour Florida’s Natural Charity Classic (total prize money of 200,000 dollars) held at the Winter Haven Country Club (par 72) in Winter Haven, Florida, from the 3rd (Korean time).
Lincicum, who traded 4 birdies and 4 bogeys to write an even par 72 and finished the first day in a tie for 18th, stood out among 132 players who participated in this tournament.
Golf Week reported that Linthicum played the tournament in secret, but he couldn’t hide the fact that he wasn’t the right player for the Epson Tour.
The reason Lincicom participated in the Epson Tour, which is out of place, is to enhance his sense of practice in preparation for his upcoming comeback.
Lincicum had been off the field on maternity leave since the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship last June.
Lincicombe, who gave birth to her second daughter, Sofia, in September of last year, is preparing to return to the field by reshaping her body and refining her shots. He is scheduled to play in the championship. 메이저놀이터
Lincicum entered the Epson Tour as a ‘category F’.
‘Category F’ is a participation ticket that allows LPGA Tour players who have taken maternity leave or sick leave to participate in Epson Tour events to check their performance through actual matches before returning to the tour.
As a ‘category F’, you can compete in three Epson tours before returning to the tour.
Winter Haven Country Club, where the Epson Tour Florida’s Natural Charity Classic is held, is an hour and a half by car from Linthicum’s home.
It is also the course where Lincicum took her first LPGA Tour Qualifying School in 2005.
Linthicum plans to participate in one more Epson Tour event.
This is because the Carlyle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic, which will be held in Arizona from the 18th to the 20th, is the best place to experience actual practice ahead of the LPGA Tour Drive-On Championship.
The courses where the two tournaments are held are close by, and the LPGA Tour event will be held following the Epson Tour event.
“Traveling with my two daughters is harder than I thought,” said Lincicombe.
