Is Exhaustion & Burnout Affecting Nelly Korda? Her Latest Collapse After Lancaster Failure Explored

Nelly Korda set a record of five consecutive wins this season already; however, things started to follow a different direction from then on. The golf community was okay with her WD from the JM Eagle LA Championship. She then played the Cognizant Founders Cup too, but did not win. She did emerge victorious at the Mizuho Americas Open, but her performance at the US Women’s Open raised many eyebrows.




On the first day, she made a septuple bogey on par 3-12th at Lancaster and ended the day with 10 over. She tried to come back into the game on Friday, but it was too little too late. She missed the cut for the season’s second major. Korda is back on the greens with yet another questionable first round, but what is going wrong with the World No. 1 female golfer on the LPGA Tour?



What is hampering Nelly Korda’s game?

After the first round at Blythefield Country Club in the 2024 Meijer LPGA Classic, with a purse of $3 million, Korda was tied for 133rd in a field of 144 players. She shot 4 over 76. 29 years old, Alison Lee led the event with an 11-stroke difference with Korda. In the extremely windy weather this Thursday, Korda opened her event with double bogeys. She then made 5 bogeys and 3 birdies. Her exhaustion and burnout have thus become apparent ever since her winning moments in the Chevron Championship at The Club at Carlton Woods.





Korda had talked about this exhaustion right after her second major win when she decided to withdraw from the JM Eagle LA Championship. She expressed how difficult a decision it had been for her to withdraw. But she also explained that the decision was made keeping in mind her exhaustion. She confessed, “After the unbelievable week at the Chevron and grinding through the mental and physical challenges of four events in the past five weeks, I am definitely feeling exhausted.”
