Brittany Lincicome Shoots Under Par in Second Round of Barbasol Championship

Brittany Lincicome brought her A-game in the second round of the Barbasol Championship.

After a disappointing first round that was filled with bogeys on the par threes, inclement weather gave Lincicome a day to bounce back, and she did so wonderfully.  Lincicome knocked in four birdies and holed in an eagle from 116 yards out on the 17th hole to finish with a one-under 71.  Unfortunately, there’s no footage of the shot that brought the crowd to their feet, but there is a highlight of a long birdie putt on the 14th at Keene Trace Golf Club.

Lincicome is just the sixth woman to ever play in a PGA event, and the first to do so in more than a decade.  She is the first woman to finish a PGA Tour round under par since Michelle Wie in 2006.

Even though she did not make the cut, a milestone only reached by Babe Didrikson Zaharias in 1945, Lincicome proved she can play just as well as the boys.

    Congratulations to her for performing well. But the last statement of her proving she can play just as well as the boys is obviously not accurate (i.e missed the cut by 9 strokes).

      Exactly. I thought for sure Tyler was writing the piece when I looked and much to my surprise Nicks name. Ok, ok, so maybe it wasn’t that big of a surprise.

    In the second round more than 30 men shot a 72 or worse. That means on one day she was better than a quarter of the field. Not only can she play with the boys, she was better than a lot of them.

      Are you suggesting they play from the same tees?

      She wouldn’t make the cut in 100 tries. She can’t play with the boys. What’s your next story, UCONN women can be successful in the men’s tourney?

    Just to be clear, my argument it with your hyperbole in characterizing her performance, not her or her performance itself which was good. You should have stated for one day she shot better than 25% of the field. Apparently that is a fact. What you said was the proved she can play just as well as the boys. If beating 25% of the boys in one round is your definition then so be it. Just a heads up, that is not how they score a golf tournament. (9 strokes below the cut so obviously she couldn’t maintain consistency.). For the record she finished below 118 participants, tied with 2 others and was better than 3. Not exactly hanging with the guys, nor was she expected to. It was fun to have her participate!

    However, like so many on this site you go over the top when you don’t have to. Jack Pilgrim is the poster child for that. Next time just say for one day she was better than 25 % of the men and for 2 days she was better than 3 of 124 participants.

      Nick is right. You’re an idiot

      Actually dgtuk is 100% right about everything in his post. The hyperbole in a lot of these blog entries is comical.

      The mere fact that this bothers you so much is just astounding
