Nelly Korda claims historic third consecutive LPGA victory at Ford Championship

Posted : 02 April 2024

Nelly Korda, the reigning World No. 1, showcased her dominance yet again by securing her third consecutive victory on the LPGA tour at the Ford Championship in Arizona. With a stellar performance, Korda carded a flawless seven-under par 65, marked by seven birdies, ultimately clinching the title by a two-stroke margin.


This remarkable feat places her in rare company, as she becomes the first LPGA professional to achieve three consecutive victories since Ariya Jutanugarn in 2016, edging closer to the illustrious LPGA record of five consecutive wins set by Nancy Lopez in 1978 and later matched by Annika Sorenstam in 2004-05.


Korda's triumph at the Seville Golf and Country Club in suburban Phoenix saw her finish with a total score of 20-under par 268, securing a two-shot lead over Australian rookie Hira Naveed, who also displayed a commendable performance with a six-under 66.


Reflecting on her historic achievement, Korda admitted feeling overwhelmed by the growing anticipation surrounding her potential hat-trick but managed to maintain focus amidst the pressure. Her consistent display of solid golf, particularly in challenging conditions, has been a testament to her skill and mental resilience, with victories at the Drive On Championship in January and the Seri Pak Championship in Los Angeles preceding her latest triumph.


Despite the cold and rainy weather conditions, Korda's exceptional performance underscored her unwavering determination, taking each shot with precision and composure. Her impressive birdie streak during crucial moments of the final round propelled her to victory, outshining her competitors and solidifying her status as a dominant force in women's golf.


While Naveed emerged as a strong contender, finishing in second place, and Lexi Thompson showcased resilience to secure a tie for third, it was Korda's consistent brilliance that captivated audiences and secured her place in LPGA history with an awe-inspiring third consecutive victory.
