Korda’s tough run continues at Women’s Am
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – There is one player in this field that would truly deserve to be called the U.S. Women’s Amateur Champion if she goes on to win.
It seems Jessica Korda has had – and will continue to have – the toughest road to the final match.
In Round 1 Korda defeated her Curtis Cup teammate Stephanie Kono. In round two, it didn’t get any easier when she had to face Candace Schepperle. That’s back-to-back wins over quarterfinalists from a year ago.
In Round 3, Korda faces Lisa McCloskey. So far this summer McCloskey has been an expert in match play, advancing to two finals. She lost in the WAPL finals to Emily Tubert and then to Cydney Clanton at the North and South.
Korda has yet to have an “easy” match this week, and that’s what makes match play so great. You never know who you may face, or when for that matter.
The matches have been tough, but so far Jessica Korda has survived the gauntlet as she continues her impressive run at the U.S. Women’s Amateur.
