The Adams hybrid club which Brittany Lincicome used to hit the most dramatic shot so far of the 2009 golf season was 22 degrees, not 19 as originally reported. Trailing by one shot on the par-5 closing hole at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, Lincicome bombed her tee shot down the fairway, setting the stage for a make-or-break approach of 210 yards over water to an island green. Lincicome struck her Adams Idea Pro Hybrid perfectly, landing the ball on the middle of the oval-shaped green. It eventually came to rest four feet from the hole, setting up an eagle putt and the first major championship title for the 23-year-old Floridian.
“It came off on the clubface exactly where we wanted to hit it and took the slope like I wanted it to and came really close, thank God,” said Lincicome.
It was the third win of Lincicome’s career, and first since the 2007 Ginn Open. She also won the 2006 HSBC World Golf Match Play Championship in her second year as a pro. In addition to the hybrid, Lincicome played an 8.5-degree Adams Speedline driver, a 14.5-degree Adams Insight BTY fairway wood and Adams Idea Pro Irons (4-iron through pitching wedge).
