VIDEO: Jessica Korda says her ball was ovulating in Women’s British Open wind


Jessica Korda had a self-described blonde moment after her final round at the Ricoh Women's British Open on Sunday.

Playing at Royal Birkdale in whippy wind conditions, the field had to deal with their golf balls oscillating on the putting surfaces throughout the day. Korda dealt with that herself but, after the round, used the wrong word to describe what happened to her ball.

She said the ball was "ovulating," not oscillating, during her final-round 74. It is that time of the LPGA schedule, I guess.

Korda tweeted with humility in a self-effacing way around the round when she realized -- probably through Twitter -- just what had come out of her mouth.
