Her profile continues to rise. This week, Nelly Korda became the first LPGA Tour player to attend the Met Gala and the first golfer since Tiger Woods attended in 2013. She also is looking to become the first LPGA Player in history to win six tournaments in a row as she gets set to tee off in this week's Cognizant Founders Cup.

Nelly Korda's streak started at the LPGA Drive On Championship in January.

She has now won five tournaments in a row including her second major title at the Chevron Championship in early April. She captured the Chevron Championship after winning by two strokes over Maja Stark.

Korda missed the last tournament, the JM Eagle LA Championship, due to being burnt out both physically and mentally. She is now returning as the clear-cut favorite this weekend. She is currently No. 1 in the world in the Rolex Rankings and No.1 in the Race to CME Globe Rankings. Her season winnings are over $2.4 million.

She will also be looking to capture her second gold medal for Team USA at the Olympics this summer. She won the gold medal in 2021 along with her male counterpart, Xander Schauffele. The Olympics this year kick off in Paris in August.

After choosing to withdraw from the JM Eagle LA Championship, Korda commented, "With so much still to come throughout 2024, I feel I need to listen to my body and get some rest, so I can be ready for the remainder of the season." It seems now she is fresh and ready to go.

The profile of women's sports continues to rise. Korda is joining the likes of soccer player, Lindsey Horan, and basketball players, Sabrina Ionescu and Caitlin Clark. Her streak is making fans and media alike take notice.
