Local Professional: Jessica Korda plays in a West Florida Golf Tour event

Bradenton's Jessica Korda spent Monday strolling the fairways at the Founders Club in a dynamic threesome.

Korda played with phenom Domenico Geminiani and golfing legend Tony Jacklin in a West Florida Golf Tour event on her 19th birthday.

Geminiani became the youngest player in European Tour history when he competed in the 2010 Italian Open at the age of 14, while Jacklin won two major championships during his career.

Korda and Geminiani hone their games in Bradenton, and Jacklin resides in Manatee County as well.

Korda won her first LPGA Tour event earlier this month at the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open.

Her victory earned her $165,000. That's more than three times what she made in her rookie year last season.
