Jessica Korda’s baggage still hasn’t made it to Scotland, but she somehow missed the first round of the Women’s British Open.
Korda, wearing clothes on loan from FootJoy, posted a 5-under 66 on Thursday to move into second place after the opening round of the Muirfield Championship.
“I know where it is. I have an air tag on it,” Korda said of his bag. “I can’t make anyone take it.
“I wore Megan Khang pants on Monday. I wore my sister’s pants on Tuesday and Alison Lee’s on Wednesday. And today I’m wearing FootJoy pants.
Korda, despite a bogey on his second hole, made four birdies before eagleing the par-5 17th to move into 5th place, one shot behind Japan’s Hinako Shibun, who won the event in 2019.
Korda, a former LPGA Rookie of the Year, is currently ranked 14th in the Rolex rankings. So far this year, she has six top-25 finishes in 10 starts, with her best finish being a runner-up finish in the Chevron Championship.
Although she still has a long way to go to win this week, Korda said she refused to give up on getting her luggage back in time. It has an air tag on it so it can be seen as it sits in the airport. But for whatever reason, he doesn’t travel from Switzerland to Scotland.
“If anyone knows of anyone at Zurich airport who would be willing to put my suitcase on the one flight a day they’re coming into Edinburgh I’d really appreciate it… If it’s going to be great here, but if not, so what.” is,” she said. “I’m playing a golf tournament right now. FootJoy sent me a bunch of clothes. Yeah, we’re just trying to figure it out.
