Jessica Korda Bio, Height, Weight, Age, Sister, Married, Net Worth

Being the daughter of retired professional tennis players who made waves in their glory days might as well mean you would follow in their path but in the case of Jessica Korda, she favored golfing.

Her father, Petr Korda and mother Regina Rajchrtová were both golf players in their younger years with her father taking the title of a grand slam champion; he won the 1998 Australian Open crown. Jessica also has a younger brother, Sebastian, who took the title at the 2018 Australian Open in the boys’ division.

Despite her family’s background in tennis, Jessica Korda and her only sister Nelly chose to blaze their own trail on the golf course and they are doing remarkably well. The American professional golf player is participating in the current Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour, taking place in the United States.

Here are the things you should know about the stunning golfer.

Jessica Korda’s Bio (Age)

Her parents gave her the name Jessica Kordová after her birth on February 27, 1993, in Bradenton, Florida. While Korda is an American, she is of Czech Jewish descent. Born to parents who were professional athletes, it’s presumed that they must have started at a very young age to prepare Korda for the life of a sportswoman.

Rise To Fame

Her glory days started as a rookie in the game when she became a member of the 2009 U.S. Junior Solheim Cup and made the cut for the 2010 U.S. Curtis Cup teams. She was part of the 2008 and 2009 U.S. Women’s Open, finishing T19 in her U.S. Open debut in 2008.

Subsequently, she emerged victorious at the 2010 South Atlantic Amateur and took the runner-up position at the 2010 U.S. Women’s Amateur. Jessica Korda was the golfer representing the Czech Republic and the United States during the World Amateur Team Championship Espirito Santo Trophy in 2006 and 2010 respectively.

She entered the LPGA Tour Qualifying School when she turned 17. Though she finished runner-up in the final Qualifying Tournament, she became eligible to be called a full member of the LPGA Tour in 2011.

Her Professional Golfing Career

Just like in her amateur days, Jessica Korda has recorded some milestones in her professional career as a golfer. By the second event of her debut season in 2011, Jessica turned 18 and subsequently played in 15 events. She recorded her best finish with a tie for 19th at the Avnet LPGA Classic.

At the beginning of the 2012 season, Korda scooped her first win as a professional. The victory came in the wake of the Women’s Australian Open at Royal Melbourne, she secured her win on the second hole of a six-person playoff.

Her second LPGA Tour title win wasn’t far from the first. She took the title at the season-opening Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic in January 2014. As it happened, Jessica finished one shot ahead of fellow golf star Stacy Lewis.

A heated disagreement with her caddie, Jason Gilroyed turned messy at the 2013 U.S. Women’s Open which saw the caddie axed. After firing him, she requested for her boyfriend, Johnny DelPrete, who also plays golf professionally to be her caddie for the rest of the season.

Just like a handful of other things one would love to know about Jessica’s life, she has put a tight lid on her net worth and financial information. Thus, we cannot confirm her current worth but be sure to get updated when the information comes in.

Her Sister

She has a sister named Nelly who also plays professional golf with much prowess. Unlike their parents, the two sisters are making a name for themselves in golf and are really hard at work to accomplish more. Nelly Korda earned her card through the Symetra Tour, joining Jessica on the 2017 LPGA Tour afterward.

Is Jessica Korda Married?

The golfer and Johnny DelPrete who is also a pro golfer have been in a relationship for a long time now. They are visibly smitten with each other but we are yet to hear those wedding bells chiming for them. However, they seem happy together and might decide to take it to the next level sooner than we thought.

Her Height and Weight

While Jessica’s body weight is not known at the moment, it’s obvious she has a good and athletic body. Her height is 5 feet 9 inches – 1.8 m, quite impressive for a lady. Other details of her body measurements are equally not available but, she sports a blonde hair and pair of blue eyes.
