Despite firing a gutsy 1-under 71 in the second round LPGA player Brittany Lincicome has missed the cut at the PGA Tour’s Barbasol Championship where Cameron Percy is just one off the pace following a marathon Saturday.

Lincicome, who became the sixth woman to tee up in a PGA Tour event after accepting a sponsor’s invitation, opened with a disappointing 78 to cruel any chance of making the 4-under cut line.

However, five birdies and an eagle in the second round was impressive from the two-time LPGA major winner though she also dropped six shots along the way.

At 5-over for the 36 holes Lincicome beat just two players for the week, Australia’s Steven Bowditch and American Brett Wetterich.

"The fans were incredible," Lincicome said of her experience at the tournament.

"It was so great feeding off their energy. They were cheering for me every time I hit a shot, every time I got it in the fairway, got it on the green.

“They were really behind me and I could really feel that out there. It made me feel way more comfortable." 

Meanwhile, Australia’s Cameron Percy produced his best score of the year in the second round at the Keene Trace GC, an 8-under 64 that got him within two shots of the lead after 36 holes.

With play suspended Friday because of bad weather it was a marathon Saturday as players were forced to also complete their third rounds, Percy keeping the good play going with a 3-under 69 to be within two shots of the lead heading to the final round.

Americans Robert Streb, Hunter Mahan,  Tom Lovelady and Troy Merritt are at 18-under with three platers tied at 17-under.

Percy is one of two players at 16-under, a disappointing bogey at his final hole of the day proving costly.
