Biography

Jessica Regina Korda (Czech: Jessica Kordová) (born February 27, 1993) is an American professional golfer who plays on the LPGA Tour.

Amateur career

Korda was a member of the 2009 U.S. Junior Solheim Cup and the 2010 U.S. Curtis Cup teams. As an amateur, she won the 2010 South Atlantic Amateur and made the cut at the 2008 and 2009 U.S. Women's Opens. Korda finished T19 in her U.S. Open debut in 2008 where she shot the only round in the 60s on Sunday, shooting a 69. She finished runner-up at the 2010 U.S. Women's Amateur. She represented the Czech Republic in the World Amateur Team Championship Espirito Santo Trophy in 2006, and represented the United States in 2010, finishing tied for 4th.

Korda entered LPGA Tour Qualifying School in the fall of 2010 as a 17-year-old. She finished runner-up in the final Qualifying Tournament, making her eligible for full membership on the Tour in 2011.

Professional career

Korda turned 18 during the second event of the 2011 season. She played in 15 events in her rookie year; her best finish was a tie for 19th at the Avnet LPGA Classic. Her first professional win was in the first event of the 2012 season, the Women's Australian Open at Royal Melbourne. After rounds of 72-70-73-74, her victory came on the second hole of a six-person playoff.

Korda won her second LPGA Tour title at the season opening Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic in January 2014, finishing one shot ahead of Stacy Lewis.

Personal life

Korda is the daughter of retired professional tennis players Petr Korda and Regina Rajchrtová. Her father is a grand slam champion, winning the 1998 Australian Open crown. Her younger brother, Sebastian, won the 2018 Australian Open title in the boys' division.

Her personal and professional lives intersected at the 2013 U.S. Women's Open. During the third round of that event, she and caddy Jason Gilroyed had several disagreements, and she fired him after shooting 5-over-par for the first nine holes. She then called for her boyfriend, professional golfer Johnny DelPrete, to come in from the gallery and serve as her caddy for the rest of the round. Korda shot 1-under for the second nine, and she kept DelPrete on her bag for the final round.

Her sister Nelly Korda joined her on the 2017 LPGA Tour after earning her card via the Symetra Tour.
