Brittany Lincicome makes comparisons to golfing and fishing

by Katie Ann Robinson

During any given off-week on the LPGA Tour schedule, Brittany Lincicome can be found on her boat about 15 miles off Florida's West coast basking in the hot sun with a fishing pole in hand,  anticipating her next big catch.

"Fishing is just so calming," Lincicome said. "You can go miles out into the ocean and feel like you're the only person in the world. The water is so blue, and it's so peaceful being that far away."

The Seminole, Fl. native says fishing was just a hobby she shared with her older brother as youngsters, venturing off to nearby creeks to catch turtles. Now at 27, Lincicome hooks fish as large as a 10-foot Hammerhead Shark or a 400-pound Goliath Grouper, both she trapped just a week before heading over to Asia for the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia.

With just as many years of experience golfing, Licicome claims both sports are equally challenging and rewarding. More>>
