Richard Mille Nelly Korda is the newest partner

Richard Mille welcomed the strikingly young golfer, who triumphed last weekend at the Australian Open in Adelaide.

The 20-year old Nelly Korda is no exception to her family of exceptional athletes! Her parents, Petr and Regina, are former international tennis stars, while her brother Sebastian is a professional tennis player and her sister Jessica is a professional golfer as well.

It was in 2016 that Nelly Korda's professional career took off, when she won the Sioux Falls LPGA Golf Tournament leg of the Symetra Tour. She went on to victory in the LPGA Taiwan in Taoyuan and claimed her first LPGA tour title. At 15 years old, Nelly Korda was already playing in the U.S. Women’s Open, before joining the US team in the Junior Solheim Cup, two years later. Her amateur career culminated in the Harter Hall Invitational 2015, and the PING Invitational 2015.

With Nelly Korda's second LPGA triumph, in Adelaide, Australia is once again abuzz with the name Korda—following her father’s Australian Open title in 1998, her sister’s 2012 victory in this same tournament, and her brother’s win in the Australian Open Jr. Championships just last year.
