Jessica Korda
USA

Teenage starlet, 17 year old American Jessica Korda, is one of the LPGA Tour's most exciting prospects having finished second at the LPGA Final Qualifying School at the end of last year.

 

 

She will celebrate her 18th birthday on the Sunday of the HSBC Womenís Champions and is hoping for a coveted place on the leader board as the perfect birthday gift.

A Florida high school senior and daughter of former world-ranked, Australian Open tennis champion Petr Korda of the Czech Republic, the teen played as an amateur  at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament  turning professional when she finished in second place.

A former Number One on the Amateur World Rankings, 2010 U.S. Curtis Cup team member and the runner-up in last year's U.S. Women's Amateur Championship she looks set to make a huge impact on the LPGA Tour.

Korda captured her maiden LPGA tour victory at the seasonís opening event The ISPA Handa Women's Australian Open by winning a six-way sudden-death playoff on the second hole. She also managed another top 10 finish and made 16 cuts.
