Early Life And Family
Brittany Lincicome was born on 19 September 1985, in St. Petersburg, Florida, to father Tom Lincicome and mother, Angie Lincicome. She was deeply into golfing from a very young age and started playing from the age of nine. After receiving full support from parents and family, she managed to be in the position she is now. She was raised in a sporty family with her older brothers Bryan Lincicome and Hunter Lincicome, also interested in sports but were not as athletic as Brittany.
As a child, Brittany had put her hands on a variety of sports from softball to baseball. As said by her father Tom, softball turned out to be too slow for her, and she got into baseball for her quick throws. She even played for the Rockies for four years. She used to play just about every other position while she was not pitching. Eventually, Brittany made it into golf and honed her skills with the boys.
