Nelly Korda has already put together an impressive resume at such a young age. At just 24 years old, the No. 2 player in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings has won eight LPGA Tour events, a major championship, and an Olympic gold medal. She’s also racked up a massive $7.5 million in on-course earnings since turning pro in 2016.
Thanks to the hot start to her career, Korda has built up a hefty net worth over the past few years. So, what is Nelly Korda’s net worth, and how does it compare to the highest-paid golfers on the PGA Tour?
Nelly Korda is one of the best golfers on the LPGA Tour
Golf fans knew Korda had a bright future ahead of her when she was a teenager. In 2013, she made the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open when she was just 14 years old.
It wasn’t surprising to see Korda excel on the golf course at such a young age, mainly because her parents, Petr Korda and Regina Rajchrtová, were both professional tennis players. Her older sister, Jessica Korda, was also on the LPGA Tour already.
Korda turned pro herself in 2016. After one season on the Symetra Tour, she joined the LPGA Tour in 2017. The American won her first LPGA Tour event in 2018 at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship, but she didn’t burst onto the professional golf scene fully until 2021.
Last year, Korda won four times on the LPGA Tour, secured her first major championship victory at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, and dominated the Tokyo Olympics en route to a gold medal. She also jumped to the No. 1 spot in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings for the first time.
The Bradenton, Fla. native has since dropped to No. 2 behind Lydia Ko.
What is Nelly Korda’s net worth?
Korda is one of the most successful golfers on the LPGA Tour today. The 24-year-old has racked up more than $7.5 million in on-course earnings throughout her young career, and she’s amassed an impressive net worth as a result.
Nelly Norda’s net worth is reportedly $3.5 million as of 2021, according to Exact Net Worth. So, how does that compare to similar PGA Tour players?
Scottie Scheffler, who is 26 years old and the No. 2 golfer in the Official World Golf Ranking, has a net worth of $4 million. Collin Morikawa, who is 25, has a net worth of $6 million. It’s unfair to compare Korda to older and more successful PGA Tour stars such as Rory McIlroy, but she likely will never be able to match his net worth of $170 million in the future.
