LPGA Tour star Brittany Lincicome left her native Seminole for a jaunt down to Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club in the West Florida Golf Tour's winter season finale event, a two-man best ball partners tournament.

Lincicome teamed with friend Ryan Gildersleeve, an eGolf Professional Tour and Hooters Tour participant over the past year, to capture the title with a 61 on the Royal Lakes course.

"I thought it was a huge success," said Lincicome about the WFGT event. "People were nice, and it seems to be run very well. So I'll definitely come back if I have time ... they play some really nice golf courses from what I hear, so it's nice."

Lincicome said she would have gone fishing if she didn't play in Wednesday's event. She also said she hasn't played much since her first-round exit in last week's Sybase Match Play Championship.

Annika Sorenstam gained notoriety for playing in the PGA Tour's regular stop at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas back in 2003.

Lincicome said she doesn't plan on any PGA Tour events in her future, but did play against the men in an individual Hooters Tour Winter Tournament Series event in Florida back in January.

The long layoff between the 2010 and 2011 seasons allowed Lincicome time to play in a competitive environment while honing her game toward the new season.
