“I know where it is. I have an air tag on it. I can’t get anyone to actually go get it,” she explained.
The current Rolex #14 then credited her benefactors. “Monday I wore Megan Khang’s pants. Tuesday, I wore my sister’s pants and Wednesday I wore Alison Lee’s pants. And today I’m wearing FootJoy pants.”

“Sponsor’s hats,” she said. “Wearing a Muirfield hat right now. A lot of my warm stuff. My hand warmers. My hands get really cold, so I wear gloves all the time. I’ve got a lot of heat patches for my lower back and my vitamins. Don’t have that.”
The episode may well have given her some impetus for the tournament.
“I gave up on it (the case) by Wednesday,” she said. “If it comes here, great, but if not, it is what it is. At this point,I’m playing a golf tournament.”

“You have to stay on it here at all times,” said Korda of the tough course.
