Richard Mille is pleased to welcome and congratulate the strikingly young golfer Nelly Korda, who triumphed last weekend at the Australian Open in Adelaide.
The 20-year old Korda is no exception to her family of exceptional athletes! Her parents, Petr and Regina, are former international tennis stars, while her brother Sebastian is a professional tennis player and her sister Jessica is a professional golfer as well.
It was in 2016 that Nelly’s professional career took off, when she won the Sioux Falls LPGA Golf Tournament leg of the Symetra Tour. She went on to victory in the LPGA Taiwan in Taoyuan and claimed her first LPGA tour title. At 15 years old, Nelly was already playing in the U.S. Women’s Open, before joining the US team in the Junior Solheim Cup, two years later. Her amateur career culminated in the Harter Hall Invitational 2015, and the PING Invitational 2015.
With Nelly’s second LPGA triumph, in Adelaide, Australia is once again abuzz with the name orda following her father’s Australian Open title in 1998, her sister’s 2012 victory in this same ournament, and her brother’s win in the Australian Open Jr. Championships just last year.
Destined for great things in women’s golf, the young American fits right in with the other talented athletes who are involved in developing a resolutely sporty women’s collection for the brand.
