Rolex Rankings Move of the Week: Jessica Korda

Jessica Korda

Jessica Korda of the USA follows her drive on the fourth hole during the final round of the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic at the Ocean Club course on January 26, 2014 in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Jessica Korda made a move in the Rolex Rankings this week moving up 16 spot to No. 24 with her win at the 2014 Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic.

Korda had been close to picking up win No. 2 of her LPGA Tour career many times over the past two years and on Sunday, she finally did it. The 20-year-old made a dramatic up-and-down on the 18th hole for birdie to defeat Rolex Rankings No. 3 Stacy Lewis by a stroke at the 2014 season-opening Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic.

Season-opening events must have a special magic for Korda, who became a Rolex First-Time Winner at the 2012 season-opening ISPS Handa Australia Women’s Open.
