Nelly Korda Chevron Championship

Nelly Korda clinches the Chevron Championship for her second major title, extending her remarkable streak to five consecutive LPGA victories. The world number one’s triumph matches a historic LPGA record set by Nancy Lopez in 1978 and later equaled by Annika Sorenstam from 2004-2005.

In a thrilling final round at Carlton Woods near Houston, Korda maintained her composure despite the pressure of a tense back nine, securing a two-stroke win over Sweden’s Maja Stark. Her flawless performance throughout the tournament earned her a well-deserved $1.2 million prize and further solidified her dominance on the tour.

Reflecting on her victory, Korda expressed relief at finally being able to catch her breath after what felt like an eternity on the back nine. The 25-year-old American displayed unwavering focus and skill, carding a three-under par 69 in the final round to finish at 13-under 275 for the tournament.
