Jessica Korda, who always wears borrowed clothes, is second at the Women’s British Open after Thursday

Jessica Korda’s luggage has yet to arrive in Scotland, but she hasn’t matched her first round at the Women’s British Open.

Korda, wearing clothing borrowed from FootJoy, posted a 5-under 66 on Thursday and sits in second place after the opening round of the major championship at Muirfield.

“I know where it is. I have an air tag on it,” Korda said of her bag. “I can’t get anyone to pick it up.

“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.

Korda, despite a bogey on her second hole, birdied four then an eagle on the par-5 17th to come 5 under the day, one shot behind Japan’s Hinako Shibuno – who won the tournament in 2019.

Korda, the former LPGA Rookie of the Year, is currently No. 14 in the Rolex Rankings. She has six top-25 finishes this year in 10 starts, her best finish being a second place finish in the Chevron Championship.

Although she still has a long way to go to earn a victory this week, Korda said she gave up trying to get her bags back in time. She has an airline tag on it, so she can see him sitting in the airport. But for some reason he doesn’t travel from Switzerland to Scotland.

“If anyone knows anyone at Zurich airport who would like to put my suitcase on the flight a day they have to Edinburgh, I would greatly appreciate it… If it comes here great, but otherwise, it is what it is,” she said. “Right now, I’m playing a golf tournament. FootJoy sent me a bunch of clothes. Yeah, we’re just trying to figure it out from there.
