Jessica Korda is tough. Really tough. Not only did Jessica Korda have jaw surgery in the offseason to fix a major overbite and the awful impact it had on her life, but she won in her first start back at the Honda LPGA Thailand.
A week later, Korda is in position to win again at the HSBC Women’s World Championship. However, the experience at a two-fer in Asia hasn’t come without some additional pain. On Saturday at Sentosa Golf Club, Korda had to pop her wrist bone back in place after dealing with a tough lie in the rough.
“I caught grass and then my wrist popped out of place and then — just, yeah, and I got it to pop back in, but it hurt in the meantime,” she said. “And then I iced it and took an Advil and hoped for it to go down and it did. I’m very happy. That’s what happens when you’re double-jointed and hypermobile.”
So, Korda, who has a ton of screws in her face for her repaired jaw, apparently has no problem just shoving her wrist bone back in place?! Whoa.
Her quotes read a lot like Tiger Woods at the 2015 Masters when he spoke with Bill Macatee about popping a bone back in place in the final round.
WOODS: A bone kinda popped out and a joint kind of went out of place, but I put it back in.
We salute you, Jessica Korda.
