Jessica Korda makes 3 eagles, shoots 61 to tie LET record (1)


SOTOGRANDE, Spain (AP) — Jessica Korda made three eagles Thursday in an 11-under 61 that equaled a Ladies European Tour record and gave her a five-shot lead after the first round of the Aramco Team Series in Sotogrande, Spain.

Korda also added six birdies to go with one bogey on the par-4 eighth to break the course record at La Reserva Club and equal the lowest round in relation to par on the Ladies European Tour.

The American was at 7 under after seven holes following eagles at the par-5 second and sixth holes. She added her third eagle on the 16th, also a par 5.

“I have never made three eagles in a round, so I’m definitely going to remember this one,” Korda said. “For the last month and change, I think I haven’t really been converting any putts and the floodgates opened today. Hopefully, they can continue tomorrow and that’s the beauty of golf.”

Manon De Roey of Belgium and Pia Babnik of Slovenia were tied for second after both shot a 66. Nelly Korda, Jessica's sister, was one shot further back in a tie for fourth despite a double-bogey 7 on the sixth.

The event features a 54-hole individual tournament taking place alongside a 36-hole team event.

The quartet including Jessica Korda, Tereza Melecka, Noora Komulainen and amateur Malcolm Borwick also hold a one-shot lead in the team event.

Chile appeal hearing in World Cup case set for Sept. 15

Chile’s appeal hearing to challenge Ecuador’s place at this year’s World Cup because of an alleged ineligible player has been set for Sept. 15. FIFA says its appeal committee invited Ecuador player Byron Castillo to be available as a witness. No target was given for a verdict.

Chile claims Castillo is actually Colombian and was not eligible to play for Ecuador in World Cup qualifying games. The case could subsequently go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

New coach, new facility have Florida eyeing better results

Billy Napier’s methodical, multifaceted approach to returning Florida to national prominence might actually be on a fast track. Napier’s recruiting prowess has been on display the last two months. The Gators’ 2023 class is now ranked in the top 10 by Rivals and 247 Sports. The bump coincides with Florida opening an $85 million facility that should help get the program back on level footing with the Southeastern Conference heavyweights. It’s progress, no doubt. The key now is preventing it from becoming one step forward, two steps back once the season begins. The Gators open with seventh-ranked Utah in Gainesville on Sept. 3.

Low on water, prep football adapts in Mississippi's capital

A water crises in Mississippi's capital city has forced high school football coaches to adjust on the fly. High school football is a big part of the state's cultural identity.

Ohtani's 30th HR rallies Angels to 3-2 victory over Yankees

Shohei Ohtani became the first player in major league history to hit 30 home runs and record 10 pitching wins in the same season as the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees. Ohtani’s three-run shot to center off a 97.9 mph fastball by Gerrit Cole (10-7) in the sixth put the Angels on top after they had been held to two hits the first five innings. It is the third time in the past four games the reigning AL MVP has gone deep. Patrick Sandoval (5-9) struck out seven and allowed two runs in seven innings to win for the second time in his last three starts. Jimmy Herget got his fifth save.

FAMU players ask school president for 'changes made now'

Florida A&M’s football team is openly questioning the level of financial and compliance support players are receiving from the university. The Rattlers considered not traveling for their season opener at North Carolina last week because 26 players were ruled ineligible. Nearly 90 players wrote to school president Larry Robinson on Sunday, a day after the team lost to the Tar Hills. It says players were ruled ineligible not for academic performance but rather because of “procedural issues within the registrar’s office, compliance department and academic advisement.” FAMU has one compliance and one academic adviser for athletics, according to the university. The letters also says financial aid was not awarded in a timely manner to buy books and avoid evictions.

Bears set to unveil conceptual plans for suburban stadium

The Chicago Bears are set to unveil conceptual plans for a suburban stadium and entertainment complex next week. The team is considering a move from its longtime home, Soldier Field.

Justin Lower lost PGA Tour card, LIV might help get it back

Justin Lower lost his PGA Tour card in brutal fashion when he three-putted from 60 feet on the final hole of the regular season. Thanks to LIV Golf, he might be getting it back. The tour told players a few weeks ago that eligibility for next season would extend through the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. Some players are likely to join LIV Golf after this week and will be suspended from the PGA Tour when they play in the rival series. That is likely to bump up Lower, Austin Smotherman and others into the top 125. That means they will have full cards next season.
