Jessica Korda Golf, Jessica Korda broke out her father’s trademark scissor-kick celebration Sunday when she won the Women’s Australian Open at Royal Melbourne for her first LPGA Tour title.
She decided against the cart wheels that her father, Petr, did when he won the 1998 Australian Open tennis title. Maybe she was still dizzy following a topsy-turvy final day of the tournament.
Jessica Korda of the United States jumps over the winner’s trophy after she won the Women’s Australian Open golf tournament at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia, on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012. The teenager won her first LPGA Tour title after a six way play-off.
After losing the lead with a late bogey run, the 18-year-old American fought back to take the last spot in an improbable six-player playoff, then won with a 25-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole.
“It is a really special place for my family,” Korda said. “For my first win, I honestly could not have thought of a better place.”
What did her father say when they spoke by phone after the victory?
“That he was, ‘So proud of me and we’ll talk about the three-putts after,’” she said.
She closed with a 1-over 74 to finish at 3-under 289 in the first women’s professional event at Royal Melbourne, the difficult sand-belt layout that was the site of the 2011 Presidents Cup.
