Korda makes the semifinals

Jessica Korda defeated Erynne Lee 4 and 3 in the 110th U.S. Women's Amateur on Friday.

That win takes the Bradenton golfer into the semifinals of the marquee national amateur championship.

Korda took a 1-up lead on No. 8 and never looked back.

She played the next seven holes in 2-under par, while Lee couldn't gain any ground.

It's been a busy summer for Korda, having qualified for her third consecutive U.S. Women's Open after taking medalist honors in the sectionals.

She also was a member of the winning U.S. Curtis Cup team.

However, Korda took a break from the hectic schedule by not entering the U.S. Girls Junior and so far it seems that decision is paying dividends.

She'll try to advance to the final on Saturday against Canada's Stephanie Sherlock.

That is the second semifinal match and tees off at 10:15 a.m.
