Jessica Korda popped her wrist bone back in place at HSBC Women's World Championship

Jessica Korda popped her wrist bone back in place at HSBC Women’s World Championship

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."

Wait, what?

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.

MACATEE: Really?

WOODS: Yeah.

We salute you, Jessica Korda.
