Lincicome & Tan tied for lead

Brittany Lincicome and Kelly Tan shot 3-under 67 in windy conditions on Thursday to take a one-shot lead in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.


“Something finally in my mind kind of switched in Atlantic City after I missed the cut,” said Lincicome about last week’s ShopRite LPGA Classic. “I’ve had so much time off since having Emery (her 16-month-old daughter) and taking time off and COVID. Each week it’s just kind of been let’s make the cut, let’s make the cut, and that’s not a way an eight-time winner should play golf.”



Lincicome went bogey-free on Thursday and missed only one green.

“I never tried to swing hard with the driver off the tee today. I was just literally, `Get it in the fairway and then worry about the next shot.’ And then on the green, aiming in very specific spots.”


Tan has yet to win on the LPGA Tour but has had better form recently after missing the cut at the Women’s British Open. In her previous best finish in a major she tied for 90th at the Women’s PGA in 2016.

“I just feel like I try to tell myself that every day I have a little goal and try to achieve them and build confidence from there. My ball-striking has been really good, and I think that’s been a key and it’s been giving me a lot of confidence going into the next day.”



Lydia Ko, Danielle Kang, Cydney Clanton, Gabby Lopez, Carlota Ciganda and Linnea Strom were a stroke back at 68. Lopez and Ciganda are back after testing positive earlier this year for COVID-19.
