Brittany Lincicome will play PGA Tour stop in Kentucky

According to Dave Shedloski of Golf World, 8-time LPGA Tour victor and 2-time major champion Brittany Lincicome will in all likelihood tee it up at the Barbasol Championship in July.

Swedish superstar Annika Sorenstam became the first woman in 58 years to appear in a PGA Tour tournament when she played the Colonial in 2003, missing the halfway cut. "Obviously it's a whole different ball game". Barbasol and Pure-Silk have the same parent company, Perio Inc., and Lincicome has won the past two editions of the Pure-Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic.

"I guess the worst I could do is miss the cut", she said. "It's going to be obviously pretty far, but that's nothing I don't think I can't handle", said Lincicome, nicknamed "Bam Bam" for her driving ability.

"I love competing with the guys". Now she is ready to accept a new challenge, trying to compete in a PGA Tour event.

Michelle Wie later competed in a handful of PGA Tour events, never making the cut.

Lincicome says it's something she's always wanted to do, but that it's not about "trying to compare yourself to the men". "I'm already nervous. I feel like every time I walk by one of those guys they are going to look at me like, 'Why the heck are you here?'"

"I play a little harder".

The Barbasol Championship is slated for July 19-22 in Nicholsville, Ky., outside Lexington. "Hopefully they are really nice". She also played against boys while in high school in Florida. Her average drive of 271.99 ranks sixth on the LPGA, but would be 205th out of 206 on the PGA.

"The Motor City-and the entire state of Michigan-have long served as a premier golf destination with some of the best courses in the country", said Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner.
