It appears Nelly Korda will make her return from a blood clot at the U.S. Women’s Open

News

Tournament interview schedules are generally a matter of media housekeeping, letting writers and reporters know when a player will speak prior to an event. However, an interview schedule release from the USGA Wednesday broke some news regarding next week’s United States Women’s Open.

That’s because, in the 10:30 a.m. slot on May 31 at Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C, one Nelly Korda is scheduled to talk, signaling the former World No. 1 is set to make his return to competitive golf.

Korda, 23, has been sidelined since early March after discovering a blood clot and underwent surgery in April to have the clot removed. On May 20 Korda posted an Instagram video of herself hitting balls, but made no mention of a return date.

Korda is coming off a career year in 2021, winning four LPGA events including her first major at the Women’s PGA Championship, and captured the Olympic gold medal at the Tokyo Games. Despite the breakthrough at the Women’s PGA, Korda told Golf Digest that the tournament she wants the most is the USGA’s flagship event.

Korda has played just three times this season, her last appearance coming in early February at the LPGA Drive On Championship.

The 77th U.S. Women’s Open begins June 2. Yuka Saso is the defending champ.
