7:25 a.m. -- Good morning and welcome to the 36-hole championship match for the 110th U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. The final features a pair of talented 17-year-olds: Danielle Kang of Thousand Oaks, Calif., and Jessica Korda of Bradenton, Fla. Each golfer has performed well in past USGA championships. Kang was the medalist at the 2009 U.S. Women's Amateur and last month's U.S. Girls' Junior up the road at The Country Club of North Carolina in the Village of Pinehurst, where she advanced to the quarterfinals. She also made the cut at the U.S. Women's Open in July at Oakmont Country Club.
Korda helped the USA win the Curtis Cup Match in June and was on the USA Copa de las Americas Team that won the overall title in Argentina this past January. Twice she has made the cut at the Women's Open (2008 and 2009), shooting final-round 69s both times. She missed the cut at this year's Women's Open. She also decided to skip the Girls' Junior to be properly rested for a run at the Women's Amateur. Korda is also the daughter of 1998 Australian Open singles champion Petr Korda.
