Unrelated to COVID, Jessica Korda withdraws from AIG Women’s British Open early Thursday

Jessica Korda will have to wait a little longer for her first major championship victory.

The 27-year-old announced early Thursday morning via her Twitter account that she would withdraw from the AIG Women’s British Open, the first women’s major championship of the year. The tournament begins Thursday at Royal Troon Golf Club in Scotland.

“Unfortunately, due to medical reasons that are not Covid-19 related, I’ve had to withdraw from the AIG Women’s Open. I’m hopeful to tee it up soon,” said Korda, who has been replaced in the field by Slovenia’s Katja Pogacar.

Korda has five LPGA wins to her name but is still seeking that elusive first major title. She’s yet to win since February 2018 at the Honda LPGA Thailand. Entering the week Korda sat at No. 20 in the Golfweek/Sagarin women’s professional rankings.
