Korda prevails; Chen doesn't at U.S. Women's Amateur

And then there was one.

Jessica Korda made it past her second round match earlier today in riveting comeback fashion, while fellow Bradenton junior golfer Doris Chen was eliminated in the U.S. Women's Amateur at Charlotte (N.C.) Country Club.

Korda was 1-down to Candace Schepperle through 11 holes in the round of 32 match.

Then she stormed back by shooting 2-under par over the next five holes to defeat Schepperle 4 and 2.

In contrast, the Birmingham, Ala. native bogeyed four of those five holes to help Korda's comeback.

The Bradenton Prep student plays Lisa McCloskey, of Houston, in Thursday afternoon's round of 16.

Meanwhile, Chen never got it going in her match with Canada's Jennifer Kirby.

Kirby took the lead after No. 1 and never looked back, eventually downing Chen 3 and 2.

Chen never had a lead in the match.
