HARRISON, N.Y. -- Westchester Country Club is the kind of place where with a few birdies you can make up a lot of ground in a hurry.
Brittany Lincicome happily learned that in Saturday's third round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.
Starting on the ninth hole, Lincicome birdied five holes in a row and six out of seven on her way to shooting a 4-under 69.
That brought Lincicome, winner of the LPGA season's first major -- the ANA Inspiration -- to 6-under-par 213 total.
"This is a golf course that fits my game so well," she said. "There's no reason why I can't shoot in the 60s each day, even though I know it's a major and it's going to play tougher. The pins were definitely harder today. It was a little bit windier, so I didn't know if that was going to be a possibility. Started out, had a couple bogeys early, which are never fun. Finally had the first birdie to get things going and I think I had four or five in a row which was really fun. I missed a couple coming in, which could have been an even better day. I missed like a 5-footer on 17 and then parred 18. But overall, it was really nice."
Lincicome, a six-time winner on the LPGA Tour, is in search of her third major overall and second in succession.
"It was nice to get a good score today," she said. "I always like to be coming from behind. I don't like leading after two or three rounds because it makes me more nervous, I have to do more interviews and there's more attention, so if I'm coming from behind and chasing people, it seems to be more of my comfort zone."
