from my blog: Jessica Korda Interviews Younger Sister Nelly Korda Prior To 2013 US Women’s Open | Fairways and Forehands

Jessica Korda


Jessica Korda, 2012 Women’s Australian Open champion, qualified for the 2008 US Women’s Open when she was a 15 years old amateur. Not only that, she finished tied for 19th. She wasn’t low amateur (Mariajo Uribe was) but it was still a terrific finish for a future LPGA Tour winner. Her little sister, Nelly Korda, has done her one better, by qualifying for the 2013 US Women’s Open at only 14 years old. We’ll see if she can best her big sister’s T19 finish. Jessica took some time out to interview Nelly for Golfweek.

...and here's an overview of Sebonack...

from my blog: Memorable Shots From US Women’s Opens Past | Fairways and Forehands

Se Ri Pak with Jenny Chuasiriporn in background


This post is basically to direct fans of the US Women’s Open to a series of great articles by Mechelle Voepel on ESPNW. She takes a look back at 5 memorable moments from past US Women’s Opens. On a personal note, I’m happy Ms. Voegel included Jenny’s shot. Although Jenny found her calling as a nurse, not a golfer, if it were not for Jenny I would not have begun to follow Se Ri. If it were not for Se Ri, I’d spend 100% of my time watching tennis. Ok, maybe not 100% but the LPGA probably would not be on my radar. I’ll put the videos here, but for the full stories behind the videos, click on the article links as well.

SE RI PAK, 1998 US WOMEN’S OPEN (full story: Shoeless Se Ri)



ANNIKA SORENSTAM, 2008 US WOMEN’S OPEN (full story: Fantastic Farewell)



BIRDIE KIM, 2005 US WOMEN’S OPEN (full story: Bodacious Birdie)



LAURI MERTEN, 1993 US WOMEN’S OPEN (full story: Come From Behind Chip)



JENNY CHUASIRIPORN, 1998 US WOMEN’S OPEN (full story: Give It A Good Run)

Interesting comment by Ron Sirak on Golf Channel this morning. He said that of all the tournaments put on by the USGA, the US Women's Open is the hardest to set up because the skill level from the top of the field to the bottom is so great. The course has to be challenging for Inbee, Stacy, Suzann, etc. but not completely unplayable for the least-skilled qualifier.

As long as it's a challenge for the top 80 (or so) players in the field,the USGA shouldn't worry about the scrubs at the back end shooting 25 over par.

As in anything,one should always be looking to level up,not level down.

By the way,thanks for promising to keep me apprised of TLHNK and TAALCYK's wardrobe choices during the tournament.Although,I may have deduced just a slight lack of sincerity in your reply...

If the task of setup is difficult for the women's US Open then it has to be easy for the US Open because the USGA doesn't care about the field at all.
Anyway, I think Sirak is wrong, the USGA has a difficult time setting up the women's US Open, not because they are worried about the least-skilled qualifier as they are about embarrassing the top female golfers, so they give them a larger break relative to the setup for the US Open.

What me? Insincere? Pffft. Just wait. I'll give you a schmatta-report like you've never seen. Also, I love it when you speak Yiddish so you got me at hello on that one.

That's why I think Sirak was simply being kind to female golfers by saying the USGA worries about setup for the lower level gals playing in the women's US Open.
I don't think they care, but since they don't want to embarrass the top female golfers they do have to be somewhat careful in setting up a women's US Open golf course. A winning score of double digits over par in modern times would not be good for women's golf or the USGA.
