Lincicome is one of the longest drivers in women's golf. In her rookie year, 2005, she led the LPGA in driving distance with an average of 270.3 yards (247.2 m). In 2006, her driving average increased to 278.6 yards (254.8 m), second among all LPGA players. Her prodigious length off the tee has earned her the nickname "Bam-Bam."
Lincicome was born in St. Petersburg, Florida, and participated in more than 100 amateur events. Her wins included the American Junior Golf Association Chateu Elan in 2001 and 2003 and the Avilla Junior Classic in 2003. In 2004, she won the Harder Hall Invitational. Lincicome competed in both the 2004 U.S. Women's Open and the 2004 State Farm Classic on the LPGA Tour as an amateur, even leading the former after the first round.
Lincicome turned professional in December 2004 at age 19, after finishing in 20th place at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament in to earn her tour card for 2005. Home-schooled, she had graduated from high school the previous spring. Her first victory was in the 2006 HSBC Women's World Match Play Championship, where she defeated Michelle Wie in the quarterfinals, Lorena Ochoa in the semifinals, and Juli Inkster in the final match. She captured her second win in April 2007 at the Ginn Open, again holding off Ochoa to capture the victory on the 72nd hole.
In 2007, Lincicome became a member of the U.S. Solheim Cup team for the first time. In singles play, she lost to Laura Davies. Years earlier, as a 12 year-old, Lincicome had carried the scoring sign for Davies at the JCPenney Classic LPGA event, leading Davies to good-naturedly refer to Lincicome as "Sign Girl."
