What's In My Bag? Brittany Lincicome

September 2009

IT HAPPENS
After a bad shot, I sing or count. Mostly Sugarland or Kenny Chesney. Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott taught me to do this when I went to their Vision54 golf school the week after I won the Kraft Nabisco. They were surprised I showed up.

SIBLING DRIVE
My dad taught me and my two older brothers to play on an executive course. I played baseball with them, too.

SIESTA HABIT
Every day I take a nap. I put on my PJ's and even a room-darkening mask sometimes. I was home-schooled, and my parents ran a day-care center. I napped when the kids did from noon to 2. Doesn't keep me from sleeping 10 hours at night, either.

LOVES LONG BALL
Growing up, I admired John Daly and Laura Davies because they hit it so far. I even got to be their standard-bearer at the JCPenney Classic.

SHOE FETISH
If I'm playing well, I won't retie my shoes during the round even if they feel loose.

by the numbers
I play the Titleist Pro V1x with a black dot next to the number. I carry nine balls: All 1s on Thursday, 2s on Friday, 3s on Saturday and 4s on Sunday.
no coin needed
I use the ball markers that you snap on the bill of your cap. I like ones that sparkle. They keep me smiling when I line up those tough putts.
