The world’s third golfer Nelly Korda had another heart attack on the 15th hole and kept the top of the table after the third round of the major Women’s PGA Championship on June 26.

The tournament took place on par72 of Atlanta Athletic Club, Georgia with a prize fund of 4.5 million USD triệu

In the penultimate round, Korda used a 6 iron at the top of the par3 15 hole, 176 yards long and then muttered “into the lake” after the tee shot. But her Titleist has enough power and height to reach just enough over the embankment and then jut up near the edge of the green.

Korda wears a Whoop smart bracelet, according to the Covid-19 prevention program at the LPGA Tour. Before the action, the device showed her heart at about 130 beats per minute. When the ball lands safely, this index is up to 150 beats per minute.

After watching the escape phase, Korda crouched and laughed as if to relieve “gut pain”, then went to the green to hold par 15.

In the past three days, the American player twice nearly kicked the ball into the lake at this stage. On the opening day, she hit the embankment. After impact, the ball is thrown into the hole. At that time, the heart rate of the golfer born in 1998 suddenly increased from 111 to 125 beats/min. But the first escape did not lead to a good ending. Because after entering the green, the ball rolled back into the bunker. Korda bounced up, added two putts and scored bogey.

After the first round of 70 strokes, Korda stood at T10 at -2. The next day, she started from the 10th hole, monopolizing the top with 63 strokes, with one bogey but nine birdies, including the last six holes to finish the round. The fiery form of the second stage helped Korda hit a record of 18 holes in the history of the Women’s PGA Championship, having just entered the 67th round and entered the group of three professional golfers who hit 63 on the par72 course of the Atlanta Athletic Club, Georgia.

Yesterday, she hit 68 and shared the top of the table at -15 with Lizette Salas. This player is all 67 strokes in three rounds.

Right behind T1 is T3 but five strokes away, including Giulia Molinaro, Celine Boutier and Thai golfer Patty Tavatanakit – major ANA Inspiration champion in April as a rookie on the LPGA Tour.

Korda has yet to win a major, but has won five championships after four years of competing on the LPGA Tour, including the most recent title – Meijer LPGA Classic on June 20.

The Korda family is rich in sports traditions. The older sister – Jessica has been on the LPGA Tour since 2011, so far six times crowned and not major yet. Petr’s father won the tennis grand slam – Australian Open 1998, while the youngest Sebastian is the 50th player in the world, according to this week’s ATP Rankings.
