Lincicome still on cloud nine

The 29-year-old claimed victory in the year's first Major earlier this month, beating Stacy Lewis in a play-off to claim her second major triumph. 

Nearly two weeks on from her victory Lincicome is still enjoying that winning feeling.

“It’s been great,” Lincicome said. “Just coming out this week and all of my fellow friends out here congratulating me and giving my hugs obviously makes it feel very special that they were rooting for me. I’m still on Cloud 9.”

Lincicome is hopeful of building on her victory as she heads into this week's event in Hawaii, but knows that it will be a challenging period.

"It’ll be interesting to see how this week goes,” the Florida native admitted. “Hopefully we keep the momentum going.”
