Bradenton's Jessica Korda is heading back to the United States Women's Open.
Korda, who has struggled thus far in her rookie season on the LPGA Tour, torched the Eagles Course at The Oaks Club in Osprey just like she did in 2010.
Korda shot 70-66--136 to earn medalist honors at the sectional qualifier for a direct entry into this year's U.S. Women's Open, slated for July 7-10 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.

Argentine Victoria Tanco, who trains at IMG Academies, also made it through with a 142 total for the 36-hole event.

Only four berths and two alternate spots were up for grabs.

Both Korda and Tanco qualified from the Oaks venue last year to play in the 2010 U.S. Women's Open, where Pendleton School alum Paula Creamer captured her first-ever major championship.
