The Monday Recap: Two different rookie results

Bradenton's Jessica Korda and Jaclyn Sweeney are on two different pro circuits for their rookie campaigns.

But both played this past week, albeit with different results.

Korda, making her LPGA Tour debut, didn't break par in four rounds during the Honda LPGA Thailand.

Korda soared to a 78 in the third round, ultimately finishing at 11-over 299.

However, the invitational-based tournament didn't offer a cut, so every player cashed.

Korda's debut earned her $5,494 and a tie for 51st.

Meanwhile, Sweeney rebounded from a rough start at the Pegasus New Zealand Women's Open - her third straight Ladies European Tour start.

The Andover, Mass. native opened with a 78 but responded with a 2-under 70 to make the cut by one shot.

Sweeney made good on her fortuitous break with a scorching 67 in the final round to vault up the leaderboard.

Her fourth round performance included a 6-under 30 on the front nine. Sweeney's Sunday charge yielded 2,500 Euros and a tie for 20th.

The LET doesn't play again until the end of March.
