The Monday Recap: Gamez and Korda

Bradenton's Jessica Korda had another rough week during her rookie campaign on the LPGA Tour.

Korda, who is now 18, began the season playing in the no-cut invitational events during the LPGA Tour's Asia swing.

This past week, she broke par in the third round of the HSBC Women's Champions for the first time in the 2011 season.

However, that did little to quell her struggle to begin the year as she finished 9-over par for the tournament after a final round 78.

Meanwhile, Robert Gamez, who recently broke the Waterlefe Golf & River Club's course record with a 61 in a West Florida Golf Tour event, got into the field at the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico.

The PGA Tour event was opposite the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship that featured the top-ranked players in the world.

Despite that, the Mayakoba still had a nice field with a couple 2011 PGA Tour winners competing.

Gamez, who is multiple PGA Tour winner, came out of the shoot with a 69-68 to earn a spot on the weekend and a guaranteed payday.

However, Gamez couldn't break 70 the last two days and settled for a tie for 50th.

Still, though, he won $8,855.34 for his 3-under par, 281 total.
