When it comes to pro golf, it is now the only game in town. Or at least the only game near town.
The ShopRite LPGA Classic will be played next week on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Golf Club in Absecon, NJ. With Tiger’s tournament going back to the Washington D.C. area this year, the ShopRite Classic is the only tour event remaining in the region.
The ShopRite has produced a pretty impressive list of winners down through the years, including Annika Sorenstam, Ai Miyazato, Angela Stanford, Kristie Kerr, and Juli Inkster.
Joining that group last year was long-hitting Brittany Lincicome, who recently returned to Seaview to help promote this year’s event. I had a chance to sit down and talk with her about a number of subjects, including fishing, tennis, and how to hit the golf ball farther. That’s all in a Quick 9 Q&A with the defending champ, which you can hear in a podcast at TeeItUpPhilly.com.
