Congratulations to Brittany Lincicome for winning the Kia Power Drive Award
Brittany Lincicome lived up to her “Bam Bam” nickname in winning the Kia Power Drive, awarded to the player with the longest driving average in 2012. The long-hitting Floridian averaged 275.2 yards per drive on the year, nearly five yards more than Lexi Thompson in second place. Lincicome has never finished outside of the top-three in driving distance dating back to her rookie season in 2004, when she topped the list with an average of 270 yards.
“I’ve been on the tour for 8 years now and I’ve always said they should give an award for the longest drive because it’s something that I’m really good at,” Lincicome said. “You hit for show, putt for dough is the saying. I wish I was more consistent with my putting but driving is what I love to do. It’s really cool that Kia is stepping up this year and giving an award for what I do best.”
