Lincicome maintains lead at LPGA C’ship


PITTSFORD - Brittany Lincicome, who is chasing her first USLPGA title since 2011, posted a one-under 71 to maintain the lead at the LPGA Championship on Saturday. The American finished 54 holes at Monroe Golf Club at 10-under-par 206, with former world number one and defending champion Park In-Bee and Norway's Suzann Pettersen a shot back on 207. Lincicome, who started the day with a three-shot lead, admitted the pressure of defending that advantage hit her shortly before the round began. "Nervous was probably an understatement," she said. "I was fine all morning. I got my 10 hours of sleep. Then when it came time to kind of eat lunch, it just wasn't happening." But Lincicome's four birdies out-numbered her three bogeys. She said the nerves dwindled as the day progressed.–AFP
