Brittany Lincicome received a sponsor's exemption to play in the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship this week, making her the sixth woman to compete in a PGA Tour event, after Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Shirley Spork, Annika Sorenstam, Suzy Whaley and Michelle Wie.

She also looks to be the first to make the cut since Zaharias in the 1945 Los Angeles Open.
