Jessica Korda and Pressure

Jessica isn't very good at handling the pressure of leading. Hopefully she outgrows the tendency to choke as she get older.

She was leading the Futures tour q-school after 3 rounds at -10 but had an 80, +8, today to fall into a T3 at -2.

Very Windy Conditions. Look at all the scores everyone way up except for the winner who had a great day.

While the average scores were higher, Jessica's was higher in relation to the other leaders. If you look at the top 10 and there is no reason to look down the leaderboard to the riff raff players, Jessica's was the highest score by 4 shots.

There is no question that Jessica choked, she has done it before and will do it again before she discovers how to stop doing it.

Maybe she is not a good wind player?

We'll see how well Jessica Korda handles pressure this week at LPGA tour q-school.
At least, Smiley Whan won't have to struggle making a decision about an age exemption for Jessica as she turns 18 on Feb. 27, 2011.

Thread has been moved from LPGA Players to Futures Tour, since Jessica is not yet an LPGA player. This makes the thread easier for people to find later.

Jessica is playing very well so far today, moving on up that leaderboard.

6 under with 3 to play...excellent.

OK, good round for Jessica today, 6 under. Now all she needs to do is -4 on each of her last 2 rounds, put 14 under on the board and see if anyone can beat it.

Either Jessica is choking again with the lead or the wind is really blowing.
I suspect she is choking and that is not good, she needs to be dominating q-school, pounding them into the ground with a good round today, but so far she isn't doing that.
