  • Nonchalant Nelly Korda Hasn'T Thought About Making LPGA Tour History This Weekend

Nonchalant Nelly Korda hasn't thought about making LPGA Tour history this weekend

Nelly Korda could win an unprecedented sixth straight event on the LPGA Tour this weekend, but she insists it's not on her mind.

Korda claimed her second major title and fifth straight victory in the Chevron Championship last month, equalling the record set by Nancy Lopez in 1978 and matched by Annika Sorenstam (2004-05).

The 25-year-old then cited exhaustion for withdrawing from the JM Eagle LA Championship but returns to action in this week's Cognizant Founders Cup in New Jersey having attended the Met Gala in New York on Monday.

"If I'm being honest, I have not thought about it at all because I've had so much going on these two weeks," Korda said when asked about chasing a sixth straight win.

"On Monday I had The Met, so haven't had too much time to think about it.

"My track record hasn't been the greatest in New Jersey. Last year missed the cut and we played KPMG here last year too and that was a nice missed cut as well.

"I'm really just trying to keep it one shot at time, see how it goes. This golf course is tough. It's very, very narrow off the tee. The rough is very penalising. And it's wet this year, so it's even worse.

"So just not getting too ahead of myself and taking it a shot at a time. As boring as it sounds or as many times as you're going to hear me say it, that's the motto and I'm going to stick to it."

Korda described attending the Met Gala as a "dream come true" but continues to appear somewhat reluctant to be pushed into the spotlight as the face of women's golf.

"I'm just out here doing what I love and hopefully that's what grows the game naturally," she added.

"I'm not trying to push anything. I hope that people see me for who I am and I love this game and doing it naturally.

"At the end of the day I think if you perform well in your sport that's what grabs people's attention. I'm not the type of person that tries to push anything or does anything I'm not really comfortable with.

"So I hope that I just do it naturally and that catches people's attention."
