LPGA star Jessica Korda took over the Miami Design District’s Palm Court Saturday for the Don’t Crack Under Pressure challenge presented by Golf Digest and Tag Heuer. More than 150 golf enthusiasts, including Girls Golf, the University of Miami Golf Team, and Johnson & Wales University Women’s Golf Team, cheered on Korda as she took on three unique challenges including: Pressure Art in which she “painted” an abstract canvas by hitting foam golf balls dipped in neon paint; Hang Time, where she hit a number of foam balls over an eight-foot flop wall set up in Palm Court; and Pressure Putting, a putting green challenge for three-foot, six-foot and nine-foot putts.
