A quick update from the golf course. Jessica Korda and Alexis Thompson, the youngest players on the USA team, own a 1-up lead over Great Britain and Ireland’s Holly Clyburn and Hannah Barlow through nine holes of their foursome match. Korda and Thompson are enjoying a huge advantage off the tee, but an overly aggressive approach from Thompson cost them a hole. Korda’s chip from rough behind the green skidded 20 feet beyond the flagstick, where Thompson failed to convert the putt.
The two took a 2-up lead with a par at No. 3 and a 15-foot birdie by Korda at the fifth. Clyburn holed a clutch 9-foot par putt at the sixth hole to earn a critical halve.
