Bradenton's Jessica Korda rebounded from a second round 77 to fire a final round 66 in the Suncoast Ladies Series tournament at West Orange Country Club in Winter Garden Jan. 24-26.

Korda finished in a tie for seventh to collect $200. The 17-year-old turned pro after qualifying for the 2011 LPGA Tour, which issued a special age waiver to allow her to play for the upcoming season.

Korda turns 18 at the end of February, with just two tournaments - invitationals in Asia - taking place before the LPGA Tour heads back to America.

Korda was tied with Jodi Ewart at 3-over par, which was eight strokes behind Laura Diaz's winning total.
