LPGA player Brittany Lincicome played a Hooters Tour Winter Series event at Deer Island Golf Club in Tavares, Fla. Here are five things you need to know:

  1. Lincicome opened with a 2-over 74 at Deer Island Golf Club. She made her single birdie at No. 16, but hung birdie putts on the lip at Nos. 17 and 18.
  2. Lincicome’s goal entering the tournament was to make the cut, which will be low 38 players and ties.
  3. The yardage at a Hooters Tour event is roughly 500 yards longer than an LPGA event. For Lincicome, that meant less chance of hitting the par 5s in two and making up shots.
  4. This is Lincicome’s first Hooters event, and she is also the first LPGA player to play on this tour. She also plays the occasional Moonlight Tour event.
  5. Lincicome was paired with Nationwide Tour player Zack Sucher and Jay Whitby. Her 74 was the highest score in the group.
