Reigning Olympic champion Nelly Korda will try to become the first player since 2015 to win an LPGA event in three consecutive years this week at The Annika tournament.
Sixth-ranked Korda captured the title the past two years at Pelican Golf Club at Belleair, Florida – barely an hour’s drive from her home in Bradenton.
“A lot of great memories,” Korda said. “And it’s close to home so feels nice to drive to a tournament.
“I grew up in this weather, grew up on this grass, so I have a sense of comfort and I like the layout. You still have to make putts and play well. That’s what I’m hoping for this week.”
