Last week, before the start of the HSBC Women’s World Championship, sisters Nelly and Jessica Korda sat down with HSBC host Kate Burton to talk about their journeys in golf, the number of times each day they call mom and their tennis role models.

“Mom watches Nelly,” said Jessica. “Nelly needs a butler, basically.”

Nelly finished solo second to Jin Young Ko in Singapore, on the heels of a T-6 in Thailand and a fourth at the season-opening Hilton Grant Vacations Tournament of Champions.

Jessica, who celebrated her 30th birthday while in Singapore, made her first start on the LPGA since September after recovering from a back injury. She struggled with rounds of 76-78-79-72. The Korda sisters, ranked Nos. 2 and 23, respectively, have won a combined 14 titles on the LPGA.
