Brittany Lincicome, a winner of eight LPGA Tour titles, has been offered a sponsor exemption to compete on the PGA Tour this summer at the Barbasol Championship.
Lincicome joins Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie as the only female golfers, in this era, to play in an official PGA Tour event.
“I always thought it would be cool to try,” Lincicome said (h/t ESPN).
“I’m not trying to prove anything.”
The Barbasol Championship plays out from July 19th through July 22nd.
Lincicome, who has played in mini-tour events to prepare for the LPGA season, has grown up playing against boys at times, and defeated them throughout her time in junior high and high school play.
“Those guys were very welcoming and I had a great time, so hopefully it’s the same,” Lincicome said.
“I’m already nervous. I feel like every time I walk by one of those guys they are going to look at me like, ‘Why the heck are you here?’ Hopefully they are really nice. If the tours think it’s OK and there really is no negative side to it, I guess the worst I could do is miss the cut.”
Aaron Stewart, Son of Payne Stewart, Appointed Tournament Director of the Diamond Resorts Tournament
Aaron Stewart, the son of late gold great Payne Stewart, has been appointed tournament director of the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida.
“I didn’t play as much then. I was more into other sports,” Stewart said. “I’d always go out to the golf course, and I was around my dad when he was practicing. I was more into the golf cart, driving that around.”
While Stewart had intentions to play professionally, even going to his father’s alma mater SMU, he ended up taking a different path professionally.
“I ended up going a different route,” Stewart said. “I didn’t have the desire to play professionally. I was a little burned out, to be honest.”
Stewart will now take on the role of running a season opener for the LGPA Tour.n
“It makes each week really exciting for us to see if we’ll have a new person on the roster,” Stewart said Monday, one day after Cheyenne Knight won her first LPGA Tour event to qualify for the season opener. “It’s a great transition into the season. We’re thrilled to be in that position.”

Brooks Koepka Had Stem Cell Treatment on Knee
The offseason was a lot of work for Brooks Koepka, the number 1 player in the world golf ranking.
Koepka, who returns to competition this week in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, spent the majority of his short offseason recovering from stem cell treatment on his left knee.
“My knee was bugging me from about March on,” Koepka said (h/t ESPN). Koepka said that the last four months were a “struggle”.
While Koepka never discussed his injury during the season, he said that his knee made it difficult to walk down hills and the ailment kept him from practicing.
Despite all of his accomplishments, Koepka still would rather win tournaments as opposed to awards.
“I don’t play for awards,” Koepka said. “I play to win tournaments.”
“LeBron has won only four MVPs,” Koepka said. “I’m pretty sure he’s been the best player.”
