Nelly Korda Wins The Chevron Championship

Ties LPGA record with 5th consecutive Tour Win

Whoa, Nelly!

Nelly Korda overcame a stacked field to deliver her fifth consecutive LPGA Tour win, and second major title, at The Chevron Championship held at the The Club at Carlton Woods in the Woodlands, Texas. She is now only the third player in LPGA history to win five straight starts, the last being Annika Sorenstam in 2004-2005 and Nancy Lopez before that.

Korda clinched victory after a 25 hole Sunday, after weather delayed completion of the third round. Parring all her remaining third round holes put her at -10 going into her final round. With three birdies in her round four front nine, Korda holed a perfect chip at the 10th for a four stroke advantage. Despite two bogeys coming in, Korda came agonisingly close to an ace at 17 before making birdie at the par 5 18th last for a 3-under par 69 to close the tournament out.

Maja Stark finished in the runner-up spot at 10-under with a birdie at the last, while Lauren Coughlin finished third. 

Korda's $1.2m win nearly doubles this seasons earnings, making her the fastest to $2m in earnings in a single season on the tour, as well as cementing her status as world number one. 

Even Scottie Scheffler, whose remarkable form has dominated the sport's pages, is being outgunned....

Korda tees it up next week at the JM Eagle LA Championship, where victory would set a new benchmark for the most consecutive wins in LPGA Tour history. In current form, you wouldn't bet against it.

UPDATE *****

Nelly Korda's pursuit of a sixth straight victory is on hold as she has withdrawn from this week's JM Eagle LA Championship citing fatigue.
"After the unbelievable week at the Chevron and grinding through the mental and physical challenges of four events in the past five weeks, I am definitely feeling exhausted," 

"With so much still to come throughout 2024, I feel I need to listen to my body and get some rest, so I can be ready for the remainder of the season."

Enjoy the break, you've earned it....
