Lincicome misses cut at PGA Tour event

LEXINGTON KY- JULY 21 Brittany Lincicome celebrates an eagle with her caddie Missy Pederson on the 17th hole during a continuation of the second round of the Barbasol Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club

Lincicome finished 36 holes on five-over 149 - twenty strokes behind 36-hole leader Troy Merritt, who managed to get his second round completed on Friday.

Brittany Lincicome's chances of becoming the second woman to make the cut in a men's event looked slim after she carded a six-over-par 78 in the opening round of the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship in Kentucky on Thursday.

Merritt could only manage a three-under 69 - but his first-round score of 62 kept him well in contention. Lincicome handed her a golf ball, mugged for a picture and then eagled her shot from 116 yards out.

Earlier, Lincicome had five birdies and an eagle in her second round, but she was unable to avoid mistakes in her quest to become the second woman to make a PGA Tour cut. Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam and Suzy Whaley also have played in PGA Tour events.

"I think what she proved was something more to herself". "I thought it was going to spin back a little bit on me".

A long hitter on the women's tour, Lincicome started on the back nine and hammered her opening drive down the heart of the 10th fairway to set up a routine par. "Then when it landed I was like, 'OK, it's on top, ' and then it rolled back and I was like, 'Oh, my gosh!'"

Playing partner Conrad Shindler, who made the cut along with Sam Ryder, described playing with Lincicome as "a pleasure, a treat". Despite her roller-coaster performance, he felt her approach was consistent. "You just don't know when we're going to peg it again, but it's nice to have two rounds under our belt, that's for sure".

Lincicome immediately steadied the ship with a pair of pars before rolling in a 30-foot birdie putt at the par-four third that brought her to three over for the day.

But she said her game was actually in good shape and with at least some of the inevitable nerves behind her she was aiming to produce a better round. She held her own on the back tees, often driving almost as far as the men in her group.

That remains to be seen, but Lincicome definitely appreciated this opportunity with her PGA Tour counterparts.

"I think she just got comfortable", said her caddie, Missy Pederson. Even without the history.

"It was cool just to be inside the ropes with the guys", Lincicome told reporters.

"I just tried to keep pace today", Streb said after shooting 63 with nine birdies. "They were really behind me and I could feel it out there".

The resumption will mark the PGA Tour's second Monday finish this season.
