Rolex Rankings Move of the Week: Jessica Korda
Jessica Korda had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week with her win at the Airbus LPGA Classic Presented by JTBC. Korda broke into the top-20 moving up ten spots coming in at No. 16.
Korda (-20) became the third two-time winner on the LPGA Tour this year when she won the 2014 Airbus LPGA Classic today by a stroke over Anna Nordqvist (-19). It was once again a stacked leaderboard at an LPGA event this year with an exciting fight to the finish, with eight players within four shots of Korda at the end.
Korda joins Nordqvist and Webb with two wins and said this win was a sweet one because she felt she hasn’t been playing up to her standards after Bahamas.
“I have not been playing well since I basically won in the Bahamas, and still trying to work on the same swing thoughts that Grant and I have been working on, so for it to finally pay off here is really nice,” Korda said.
Other Notable Moves:
- Lexi Thompson moved up one spots coming in at No. 5 with her finish at the Airbus LPGA Classic Presented by JTBC.
- Anna Nordqvist and Michelle Wie had big moves to move inside the top-10 coming in at No. 9 and No. 10 respectively with their play at the Airbus LPGA Classic Presented by JTBC.
