NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) Brittany Lincicome has every reason to be nervous as she chases history.

The eight-time LPGA Tour winner hopes to knock out the jitters over first few holes at the PGA Tour's Barbasol Championship and play well enough from there to stick around through the weekend. If she were to make the cut, Lincicome would achieve something that only Babe Zaharias has done against male competitors.

The list of players who've tried includes Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam and Michelle Wie. Lincicome knows what she's up against. If she earns a Saturday tee time, she knows what it will mean for women and girls - and for golf in general.
