Jessica Korda Wins in Malaysia

When you're trying to get back on the victory sheet after a period of sub-par play, weekend rounds of 65-65 really help. That's what Jessica Korda shot in the third and fourth rounds of the 2015 Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia. In fact, the back-to-back 65s were the best rounds Korda has shot this year.

And Jessica finished at 18-under, the second-best winning score in event history. She won by four shots over the formidable runner-up trio of Lydia Ko, Shanshan Feng and Stacy Lewis.

Was this victory unexpected? In one way, no: Korda is, after all, one of the bright young stars of the LPGA with three previous victories under her belt. And she finished second in the tour's season-opener. But she had missed 8 of 12 cuts going into Malaysia, was left off the American Solheim Cup team, and had no Top 10s since that season-opener.

Hopefully, this mean that Jessica is gone, and the Korda we know - the one who regularly contends and occasionally wins - is back with us.

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
