Korda sister showdown kicks off LPGA eTour Live series

It’s not traditional tournament golf, but it’s a chance to watch some of your favorite LPGA stars (and perhaps a future star) take part in head-to-head competition.

The first match is a doozie.

On Wednesday, sisters Jessica and Nelly Korda will launch the start of the LPGA eTour Live, a match-play competition in partnership with World Golf Tour (WGT) by Topgolf. The Kordas will kick off a series of seven nine-hole online matches twice a week, with the final match taking place June 3. Each match will take place at 2 p.m. ET and will stream live on LPGA and Topgolf digital platforms.

Lucy Li is the only Symetra Tour player in the field. The Kordas will compete on Congressional Country Club’s Blue Course, host of the 2022 and 2027 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. Other familiar tracks players can choose from include the Old Course at St Andrews (host of the 2007 and 2013 AIG Women’s British Open), Oakmont Country Club (1992 and 2010 U.S. Women’s Open) and Pinehurst No. 2 (2014 U.S. Women’s Open), as well as future U.S. Women’s Open venues Erin Hills (2025), the Lake Course at The Olympic Club (2021) and Pebble Beach Golf Links (2023).

GOLFTV’s Henni Zuel and Golf Channel’s Tom Abbott will add commentary during Wednesday matches, with Golf Channel’s Karen Stupples commentating on Fridays.
