Nelly Korda needed hard work for the pars rather than making the birdies seem like a routine. The golfer performed adequately well to have her distance while pursuing a medal in the Olympics.
Kelly Norda managed to save par using a putt of 5-foot during the 17th hole. She ultimately managed to hold a lead of three shots over Aditi Ashok, a fellow golfer from India, who also happened to be one of the last ones according to driving distance, but one of the leading ones in terms of sheer determination.
Nelly Korda was relieved as she dropped her last par putt. It was not a great day for her because the swing of her shots was off, but she did manage to make it across the round and proceeding into the finals. On being asked, she was quick to reply that her fight was the best element to come out of the struggle during the round.
Nelly Korda also mentioned not having a satisfactory back nine, along with some difficult par putts. However, she managed to make all pars, fighting really hard to get ahead in the game, remain in it at the least.
