Report: Caitlyn Jenner to play in 2016 ANA Inspiration pro-am

Caitlyn Jenner is expected to compete in Wednesday's pro-am for the LPGA's ANA Inspiration, the first major on the golf calendar, according to the New York Daily News.

Before transitioning to become a woman, Jenner had been a part of the event's festivities. When known as Bruce, Jenner won a pre-tournament video-game competition alongside Michelle Wie in 2013. Jenner has also played in the pro-am in the past. So perhaps it's no surprise that Caitlyn is expected to take part.

Caitlyn Jenner does not currently carry a handicap index at Sherwood Country Club in California, where she is a member, but is said to carry a 5-ish index.

In September 2015, Jenner took on LPGA player Danielle Kang in a match at Sherwood which Kang posted to Instagram. Jenner lost, and she said she was none too happy about that.

Maybe they'll team up to take down the pro-am title?
