Shadow Creek Tests Every Ounce of Nelly Korda’s Emotions During LPGA Match Play

Nelly Korda is on a run for the ages on the LPGA Tour with four straight victories. And besides beating a star-studded field at the T-Mobile LPGA Match Play, Korda had to defeat the legendary Shadow Creek. –By Brian Hurlburt,

“When you drive into the facility it just doesn’t feel like you’re in Vegas and it’s absolutely breathtaking,” Korda said. “It is such an amazing golf course. It is brutal though. It was so hard. It has tested every part of my game. I appreciate that. I think golf courses like that are so much fun play. They can be so frustrating where you walk off the hole and you’re just so frustrated there are a couple swear words going through your head. But I would say that it almost played like all the majors combined and tested our games this week. It’s been a lot of fun.”

Korda won her fourth LPGA Tour event in a row to join Lorena Ochoa with four wins a row. Annika Sorenstam and Nancy Lopez have won five events in a row.
