Lincicome wins Kraft Nabisco crown

RANCHO MIRAGE, California (AFP) — Brittany Lincicome eagled the 72nd hole on Sunday win the Kraft Nabisco Championship, capturing the first major title of her career.

A stunning shot to within four feet on the par-five 18th at Mission Hills set up the eagle for the American, who erased a one-shot deficit to beat playing partners Kristy McPherson and Cristie Kerr.

Lincicome carded a final-round 69 for a nine-under total of 279 and the victory in the first women's major of 2009.

"I can't even describe it. It's surreal," Lincicome said. "If I had to make anything further than that, my hands were shaking so bad, I was almost crying."
