Captain's corner – Beth Daniel on Brittany Lincicome winning the Kraft Nabisco Championship
“Brittany Lincicome came back from the dead this week. What was impressive about Brittany was that she just hung in there. She hit some errant iron shots, but hung in there and gave herself a chance to win and used her strength on the last hole to win the golf tournament.”
