Jessica Korda        

Professional Golfer

Jessica Korda is an American professional golfer who plays on the LPGA Tour.

Korda's 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.

Korda is the daughter of retired professional tennis players Petr Korda and Regina Rajchrtov√°. 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.
