NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) Brittany Lincicome has a huge hole to climb out of if she hopes to make golf history.

Lincicome shot a 6-over 78 in the first round of the Barbasol Championship on Thursday, leaving the LPGA Tour pro's goal of making the cut likely out of reach.

Lincicome was hoping to become the second woman to make the cut in a men's event and the first since Babe Zaharias in 1945. She's the first woman to get a PGA Tour start since Michelle Wie a decade ago.
