Korda, the daughter of 1990 Australian Open singles champion Petr Korda and younger sister of six-time LPGA Tour winner Jessica, registered her first major-championship victory at the 2021 KPMG Women's PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. Her successful title defense at the Pelican Women's Championship late in 2022 gave the Floridian eight LPGA Tour victories (12 worldwide). Nelly also won the 2021 Olympic gold medal in Tokyo. Nelly made her first U.S. Women's Open start at age 14 at Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y., where she tied for 64th. Nelly joined sister Jessica as an Australian Open champion in 2019. She and Jessica are one of three sets of sisters to win on the LPGA Tour, joining Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam, and Ariya and Moriya Jutanugarn. Nelly's younger brother, Sebastian, is a promising professional tennis player who won the 2018 Australian Open Junior title. He reached the quarterfinals of the 2023 Australian Open.
