Who is Nelly Korda’s boyfriend?

Nelly Korda is slowly becoming the best player of her era, but who has been by her side off the course?

 

Nelly Korda is slowly establishing herself as the best women’s golfer of her era.

Having just one major championship to her name and eight LPGA Tour wins before the start of 2024, Korda is now a double-major winner with six more wins since the turn of the year.

A string of six wins came in the space of seven starts, launching herself into a new stratosphere where she is being compared to the likes of Annika Sorenstam and other legends of the sport.

She has her sister Jessica on the LPGA Tour too, and her brother Sebastian Korda is a tennis player on the ATP Tour, so she hasn’t been short of motivation to improve throughout her career.
