The Top 80 finishers in Stage II move on to the final stage of 2015 Q-School, which takes place Nov. 30-Dec. 6. And Korda will be there.
Nelly can remain an amateur if she does not earn her tour card at the final stage, a nice option to have. But if she makes it through, well, hello pro career.
#TweetSomethingYouGetAlot "Are you Jessica Korda's sister?"— Nelly Korda (@NellyKorda) July 3, 2015
The answer to that question, of course, is yes. Nelly is the younger sister of LPGA winner Jessica Korda. And in fact, the sisters pulled off quite the feat just a couple weeks ago: They recorded wins on back-to-back days. Jessica Korda won the LPGA Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia on Oct. 11, 2015. The next day, Nelly won the AJGA Ping Invitational.
And the Ping Invitational is one of the biggies in junior golf. Nelly didn't just win that tournament, she dominated, winning by 11 shots.
Korda is currently ranked No. 4 in the Polo junior rankings and she's having an exceptional year. She won in June at the Yani Tseng Invitational; was runner-up at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship; and has multiple other Top 6 finishes in AJGA tournaments.
And Nelly began 2015 with a huge victory in the Harder Hall Women’s Invitational. In Golfweek's rankings, Nelly is No. 45 among amateur women worldwide, and No. 3 among junior girls.
