LPGA's Lincicome to tee it up on US PGA Tour

Lincicome hopes she can help the event get some additional exposure.

Lincicome, 32, a victor of eight LPGA Tour titles, including two major championships, is one of the longest-hitting players in the women's game.

The Barbasol Championship will be played July 19-22, opposite of The Open Championship, in Nicholasville, Ky. 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. A unique joint-venture with the Tour, which invited entries via the MyEuropeanTour platform, the fitting experience allowed golfers inside the ropes alongside the stars of world golf on Saturday and Sunday of the flagship event and first Rolex Series event of 2018.

Growing up in Seminole, Lincicome played alongside her two older brothers at a par 3 course, where their father, Tom, taught them.

Lincicome isn't setting her expectations too high.

Apple TV is Adding Dolby Atmos Audio, 3rd Party Remotes, & More
The Apple TV Remote automatically added to Control Center on iPhone and iPad makes it even easier to control your Apple TV. Now, 3 party remotes have worked with the Apple TV but have not had the official blessing and support of Apple in the past.

"Obviously, I can already hear people saying, 'You are trying to compare yourself to the men, ' " said Lincicome. "Obviously it's a whole different ballgame". "I'm not trying to prove anything". If I don't play well, it's still going to be a cool week. Other women to play in PGA Tour events were Babe Zaharias and Suzy Whaley.

Sorenstam, an LPGA Hall of Famer, played in the 2003 Colonial to considerable fanfare but missed the 36-hole cut. Her average drive of 271.99 ranks sixth on the LPGA, but would be 205th out of 206 on the PGA. But it is a challenge she is willing to accept.

Brittany Lincicome tees off on the ninth hole during the second round of the U.S. Women's Open Championship golf tournament at Shoal Creek.

"I was kind of torn", Lincicome said. She would join the likes of Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie as the only female golfers in recent times to play in an official PGA Tour event.

Lincicome, however, hopes fans support her decision. "There's only positives. If I play well, great". Says Lincicome: "I always thought it would be cool to try".
