Life on Tour can be hectic and, like most of 2020, anything but traditional, but once a year, these players get to spend the holidays at home with food and family. We caught up with LPGA Tour players Ally McDonald, Brittany Lincicome, Sierra Brooks, and Minjee Lee to chat about their plans for the holiday season and their favorite Thanksgiving traditions.

For Ally McDonald, it’s all about Celebration

The Traditions

“We do lunch with my mom’s side of the family, dinner with my dad’s side of the family, and that’s just kind of been what we’ve always done. One thing I’m really adamant about is no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving. It has to be post-Thanksgiving for me to listen to Christmas music. I just enjoying Thanksgiving and the holiday I celebrate with my family. I don’t want to bypass it and go straight to Christmas.”

The Food

“I’m a fan of chicken and dressings; that’s something my family has always done. We always have a big turkey, sweet potato casserole is big, but chicken and dressing is the thing that I look the most forward to every year. My grandmothers make a really good chicken and dressings, so it’s just always been something that I want to eat and want more of, and I want to take the leftovers home with me.”


For Brittany Lincicome, it’s all about Family

The Traditions

“This is the first year that we’re not going to West Virginia to see my grandmother. We will be doing Thanksgiving at home this year, which is different, but just to get together as a family . . . I don’t get to see my family that often. They are all up in West Virginia, so just those few days out of the year in November that we get to go up
