Brittany Lincicome Plays With The Men
By Kickntrue on 1/13/11
LPGA star(ish) Brittany Lincicome played in a men's mini-tour event earlier this week and failed to make the cut.
LPGA standout Brittany Lincicome missed the cut at Wednesday’s Bridgestone Winter Series event, shooting a 5-over-par 77 at Deer Island Golf Club that included a quartet of three-putt bogeys.

The Tampa-area pro finished with a two-day total of 7-over 151, seven shots behind the cut line. Russell Knox (Jacksonville Beach) grabbed the lead with a 66 for an 11-under total that left him two shots ahead of Brian Harman and Jason Parajeckas.

Deer Island was the third time Lincicome sought to stay sharp by teeing it up in a men’s event. Last week, she tied for third in a one-day Moonlight Golf Tour event at Windermere Country Club.
Good for Brittany. I've been harsh before on women trying to play with the men- but this is a different story. This is a small mini-tour event when the LPGA season is on hiatus. It isn't for publicity or acclaim to try to "beat" the men- this is just staying sharp.

If you're surprised at her score- consider the length factor. The LPGA often plays courses between 6100-6700 in length. You can walk on a lot of public courses and find the back tees longer than those distances. Deer Island is over 7000 from the tips.

It's almost as though course length was not the major issue. From the blurb, it looks like putting was her downfall. Take out four strokes from the 4 three-putts, and she's at +1. Very impressive, either way.

The title could very easily be the TMZ headline for a sex tape.

@rmumph1 No it isn't just you, but she looks like she is hot, and then she plays golf too, which makes her hotter.

According to her twitter feed it was her putter that killed her both days. I think its pretty cool that she takes the initiative to get the competitive juices flowing and get some serious practice in.

Jason Parajekas...I played against him when he was at UConn and haven't heard that name in awhile. He drives it 320 and has a lot of talent. Cool to see his name pop up on the mini-tour because you rarely see pros come out of the Northeast college golf scene.

I once had a pro (VB) that said beauty ratings increase as follows: take an average woman, rank her a 7, put her in a nice fitted skirt now she's an 8, put her outside an dhand her a golf club=9, and if she fires up a stogie... 10!!! That should answer your question rmumph....
