In the Winner's Circle with Jessica Korda from the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open
Second-year LPGA Tour member Jessica Korda sank a 25-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a six-way playoff to become a Rolex First-Time Winner at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open at Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Korda, who held a slim one-stroke after three rounds, fired a 1-over 74 to earn her way into an LPGA record-tying, six-way playoff that included Brittany Lincicome, Stacy Lewis, Julieta Granada, Hee Kyung Seo and So Yeon Ryu.
What once looked like a breakthrough victory for an American teen, unpredictably shifted toward a potential repeat dual of last year’s U.S. Women’s Open, and then quickly turned into a playoff party for six at the LPGA’s season-opening ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open in Melbourne
Rolex Rankings No. 285 Jessica Korda will take a one-shot lead into the final round of the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open at Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Korda, who is beginning her second year on the LPGA Tour, fired an even-par 73 on Saturday when the Composite Course proved to be quite a tough test for the players thanks to strong winds that gusted throughout the day.
