Weather delays second round of Barbasol Championship

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. — Brittany Lincicome will have to wait until the weekend to resume her bid to make the cut in a PGA Tour event.

Overnight storms delayed the start of the second round Friday in the Barbasol Championship, and an afternoon thunderstorm suspended competition for good. The round will resume Saturday morning with much of the field still to play.

Fairmont native William McGirt sits in a tie for 49th after an even par 72 in the second round at the Barbasol Championship. She posted a pair of birdies and a pair of bogeys in the second round. He sits at 4 under for the tournament.

Along with Lincicome vying to make her first PGA Tour cut, Laurinburg native Frank Adams III has one hole to play, the par 3 18th hole, and is one stroke outside the cutline. He has failed to make the cut in his previous two starts. Adams is even for his second round.

The second stoppage at Champions Trace at Keene Trace Golf Club came 20 minutes before Lincicome’s scheduled tee time.

Lincicome was near the bottom of the field after opening with a 6-over 78 on Thursday. The first LPGA Tour player since Michelle Wie in 2008 to start a PGA Tour event, she needs a huge rebound to join Babe Zaharias (1945) as the only female players to make the cut.

Troy Merritt had the clubhouse lead at 15 under, following an opening 62 with a 67.
