Brittany Lincicome has every reason to be nervous as she chases golf history. The eight-time LPGA Tour winner hopes to knock out the jitters over first few holes at the PGA Tour’s Barbasol Championship beginning today and play well enough to stick around through the weekend.
If she were to make the cut, Lincicome would achieve something no woman has done in six tries against male competitors.
PGA Tour players who didn’t make the field for the British Open will aim to break through alongside Lincicome at Keene Trace Champions. The 132-player field includes Hall of Famer and 1997 PGA Championship winner Davis Love III, 2014 FedEx Cup champion Billy Horschel and tour veterans Stuart Appleby and Hunter Mahan.
