The American won her first major title back at the 2009 edition of the competition, after an eagle at the 18th saw her secure a one-shot victory. On Sunday it was once again an eagle at the last that proved pivotal, as Lincicome forced a play-off with Stacy Lewis in which she went on to triumph.
“I mean, to make eagle on any hole is pretty incredible, and then to do it on Sunday at a major, at this major where I did it in 2009,” said Lincicome.
“It’s really surreal. I feel like if you would have bet me all the money in the world to see how many times you could do it, if I went back to the fairway now I probably couldn’t hit that shot again. So like I said earlier, today was my day. Somebody was looking out for me [on Sunday].”
Lincicome's victory was her first in four years, and a welcome end to her title drought.
“We’ve been close so many times, and it’s just one of those where don’t let it get to you,” said the 29-year-old.
“We’ll just keep feeding from it and something good is going to happen. Lo and behold here, 2009 I won on Easter Sunday, and today is Easter Sunday, so it’s pretty crazy to think about.”
