Brittany Lincicome finished with a flourish at the Barbasol Championship Saturday.
Lincicome shot a 1-under 71 on the day, thanks in part to an eagle on the 567-yard, par-5 17th. However, her run in this PGA Tour event at Keene Trace in Nicholasville, Ky., would not extend any further into the weekend.
“This was an awesome experience, and I can’t thank Barbasol enough for giving me this opportunity. I just feel super blessed,” she said.
She stood at 5-over 149 after 36 holes Saturday. She shot a 78 on Thursday. Her Friday tee time was washed away as rain and bad weather suspended play.
She was nine shots over projected cutline of 4-under when she finished. Bad weather is expected later in the day on Saturday, which may push the back of Round 2 into Sunday.
She was 2-under for the day after the 10th hole, but gave one shot back on 11.
But she still had a little magic left in her bag.
Lincicome was attempting to become the first woman to make the cut in a PGA Tour event since Babe Zaharias did it twice in 1945.
But she did leave a lasting impact.
