Second-round leader Jessica Korda seems to have had no trouble with the swing changes instituted by her new coach, Grant Price. In a brutal wind that gusted up to 20 mph, Korda shot 66 on Friday at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic to reach 11 under and take a one-shot lead on Paula Creamer into the weekend.

“We’re just working on keeping everything on plane and keeping it really simple to where if something goes wrong on the course I can fix it myself,” Korda said.


She had worked with her old coach, Magnus Carlsson, since she was a child, but after a series of nagging injuries kept her out of the winner’s circle all of last year, Korda decided a change was in order.

Two weeks with Price have yielded impressive (and pain-free) results.

“Like I said, just keeping everything on plane so I don’t have to use my hands as much as I did, which is taking a lot of pressure on my shoulder and wrist,” she said.

So far so good.
