AmericaThe world’s third female golfer, Nelly Korda, was so nervous that her heart rate increased from 111 to 125 beats per minute after the tee shot that nearly hit the lake in the first round of the major Women’s PGA Championship.
The event is organized by the Professional Golf Association of America (PGAA) from June 24-27 on the par72 course of the Atlanta Athletic Club, Georgia with a prize fund of 4.5 million USD. Yesterday, Korda started from the back half. After the entry point par, Korda moved to hole 11, par4 and closed the bogey by going to the green but entangled in a water hazard. The next three holes, she scored two birdies.
On the 15th, par3 hole, the American player born in 1998 avoided the lake by luck, because after entering the hole with an iron, the ball hit the brick embankment and then splashed onto the green.
Korda wears a Whoop smart bracelet, according to the Covid-19 prevention program at the LPGA Tour. It showed her heart rate suddenly increased 14 beats per minute, to 125 beats per minute while watching the escape ball on the 15th hole.
But the luck factor only once for Korda because the ball after entering the pit area fell into the bunker behind
Korda escaped the trap, added two putts and scored a second bogey over six holes. But Korda didn’t bogey, adding two birdies throughout the remaining 12 holes, including a long-range putt on hole 18.
With 70 shots in the opening lap, Korda finished T10 at -2. Meanwhile, Korda’s sister Jessica hit 69, and finished T3 (-3) with six other players, two strokes from the top of the table. This position belongs to compatriot Lizette Salas. Right behind this player is British golfer Charley Hull at -4.
The Korda family is rich in sports traditions. 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.
Korda has yet to win a major, but has won five championships in four years on the LPGA Tour, including his most recent title – the Meijer LPGA Classic last weekend. Jessica has entered this arena since 2011, so far six times crowned and not major yet.
