Can Brittany Lincicome swim?! We sure hope so!!

As promised, SC Golf is featuring the second SC Golf's Lady of the Week. I chose Brittany Lincicome because she is an amazing golfer, absolutely beautiful woman, she is not afraid to enjoy life, and she knows how to celebrate!

Lincicome was born in St. Petersburg, Florida. She participated in more than 100 amateur events. Her wins included the American Junior Golf Association Chateu Elan in 2001 and 2003 and the Avilla Junior Classic in 2003. In 2004, she won the Harder Hall Invitational. Lincicome competed in both the 2004 U.S. Women's Open and the 2004 State Farm Classic on the LPGA Tour as an amateur, even leading the former after the first round.

Lincicome turned professional in December 2004 after finishing in 20th place in the LPGA qualifying school tournament. She had graduated from high school the previous spring (she was home-schooled). Her first victory was in the 2006 HSBC Women's World Match Play Championship, where she defeated Michelle Wie in the quarterfinals, Lorena Ochoa in the semifinals, and Juli Inkster in the final match. She captured her second win in April 2007 at the Ginn Open, again holding off Ochoa to capture the victory on the 72nd hole.

In 2007, Lincicome became a member of the U.S. Solheim Cup team for the first time. In singles play, she lost to Laura Davies. Years earlier, as a 12 year-old, Lincicome had carried the scoring sign for Davies at the JCPenney Classic LPGA event, leading Davies to good naturally refer to Lincicome as "Sign Girl".

In 2009, Lincicome won the Kraft Nabisco Championship, an LPGA major, after making an eagle on the final hole to leap frog Kristy McPherson, who held a one shot lead going into the final hole.
