Longer tees, beating guys no problem for Lincicome

published October 23, 2002

Despite traveling the world and competing in international tournaments, Brittany Lincicome is always nervous.

"I'm nervous for everything," she said. "(People) say this is high school, it doesn't matter, but I always want to do my best."

Lincicome, a junior playing for Seminole, shot a season-low 70 last week to win the St. Petersburg Invitational at the Vinoy by three strokes. Palm Harbor's Jason Elliot and Countryside's Matt Isle tied for second at 73.

Her first time playing at the Vinoy, Lincicome had three bogeys and six birdies. And just as she has done all season, Lincicome hit from the same tees as the boys. "They'll beat me once and I'll beat them again," she said about playing against boys.

Although she sometimes finds herself outdriving the boys, she said it is hard to gauge how well she'll play in the postseason when she'll go back to competing at shorter yardage against girls.
