Jessica Korda’s luggage still hasn’t made it to Scotland, but somehow she didn’t make it to the first round of the British Women’s Open.
Korda, wearing clothes borrowed from FootJoy, went 5-66 on Thursday and is second after the first round at the Muirfield Major.
“I know where it is. I have an air tag on it,” Korda said of her bag. “I can’t get anyone to go after it.
“I wore Megan Khang pants on Monday. On Tuesday I wore my sister’s trousers and on Wednesday I wore Alison Lee’s trousers. And today I’m wearing FootJoy pants.
Korda, despite a bogey on the second hole, hit four birdies and then heads on par 17 to get to 5-under that day, one shot behind Japan’s Hinako Shibuno, who won the tournament in 2019. .
Korda, a former LPGA Rookie of the Year, is currently ranked 14th in the Rolex rankings. She has six top 25 finishes in 10 starts this year, and her best finish is second in the Chevron Championship.
While she still has a long way to go to take the win this week, Korda said she was frustrated with getting her luggage back on time. She has an air tag on her so she can see her standing at the airport. But for some reason he doesn’t make his way from Switzerland to Scotland.
“If anyone knows anyone at Zurich airport who would like to put my suitcase on one flight the day they arrive in Edinburgh I would really appreciate it… If it arrives here great, but if not it is it is, she said. “At the moment I am participating in a golf tournament. FootJoy sent me a bunch of clothes. Yeah, we’re just trying to figure it out from there.”
