WOMEN’S OPEN: NELLY KORDA MAKES HER MOVE American prodigy Nelly Korda is just 18 holes away from becoming the latest member of her illustrious family to claim an Australian Open title.

Korda, 20, surged into the lead on moving day at the Women’s Australian Open after firing five-under 67.

The World No.16 – whose older sister, Jessica, lifted the Patricia Bridges Bowl in 2012 – birdied the 18th hole at The Grange Golf Club in Adelaide and will now sleep on a three-shot lead over 2016 winner, Haru Nomura. I’m not even going to think about it,” Korda said when asked about joining her sister, father and brother in holding Australian Open victories.

“There’s still so much golf to be played … (I’m) just going to take it shot by shot.

“I know everyone is going to try and catch up, so (I’m) just going to try and play my game and try to stay consistent.”
