Nelly Korda Net Worth,

Nelly Korda has been familiar with sports since she was born to retired professional tennis players, Petr Korda and Regina Rajchrtova. From her parents, both her and her sisters were inspired to be a professional golfer. She was born on July 29, 1998 in Bradenton, Florida, United States and she is only 22 years old. Even though she is still considered young, she has made a great name in golf.

At the 2013 U.S. Women’s Open, Nelly Korda made a cut. It was like a birthday present for her as she just celebrated her 15th birthday a month before it. Three years after it, she started her professional career as a golfer. Her debut was on The Symetra Tour, the one that was known as the LPGA Future Tour before. The girl won her first event at The Sioux Falls Great Life Challenge.

Two years after her professional debut, Nelly Korda won the 2018 LPGA Taiwan Championship in Taiwan. It was her first in The Ladies Professional Golf Association. The success made her and her sister Jessica Korda the pair of sisters to get victory in the LPGA history. She then came second at The CME Group Tour Championship and became a solo third at The Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. In February 2019, she won The Women’s Australian Open.

She made it to the top 5 after winning the same tournament. For the first time in her career, she also made it to the top 10 of the Women’s World Golf Ranking, becoming the second highest American in the world.

In September 2019, Nelly Korda won the Open de France Dames by shooting 4-under par 67 with 8 shots. Two months after that, she claimed her title at The LPGA Taiwan Championship in a playoff over the golfer from Germany named Caroline Masson and a golfer from Australia named Minjee Lee.
