Korda into quarters at U.S. Women's Amateur

Bradenton's Jessica Korda battled a feisty opponent, before earning a quarterfinal spot in the 110th U.S. Women's Amateur at Charlotte (N.C.) Country Club on Thursday.

Korda and Lisa McCloskey, of Houston, went 20 holes before the Bradenton Prep student prevailed.

Korda had taken a 1-up lead with three holes to go, but bogeyed No. 16 to draw the match back to all square.

She birdied the 17th to regain that lead with just one hole to play, but another bogey sent the match into sudden death.

Finally, Korda ended it on the 20th hole as McCloskey was heading for a bogey.

Instead of rolling it close for a par, Korda knocked in a birdie on the par-4 second to win the playoff and head into Friday's quarterfinal against Erynne Lee.
