The Korda sisters share a good rapport with their fellow golfers. Being good friends and playing partners themselves, it was probably easier for them to create a friend circle. Either of the two Kordas usually find one way or another to interact with their golfer friends online to keep their fans engaged and connected in the loop with them.
