Kordas' Solheim struggles: Nelly sits; Jessica reportedly ill but playing

TOLEDO, Ohio - The reunion of Jessica and Nelly Korda at the Solheim Cup was arguably the most anticipated pairing in the lead-up to the matches at Inverness Club.

However, the week hasn’t gone as expected for the Korda sisters.

Jessica Korda sat for two consecutive sessions at the Solheim Cup, the afternoon fourballs on Saturday and the morning foursomes on Sunday. A source within the U.S. team room told that Jessica has been ill this week. Jessica will play the Sunday fourballs alongside Megan Khang, and they’ll face Europe’s Carlota Ciganda and Nanna Koerstz Madsen.
