What players – including Nancy Lopez, JoAnne Carner and Beth Daniel – are saying about Nelly Korda’s sensational streak

THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Nelly Korda comes into the LPGA’s first major of the season, the Chevron Championship, with the chance to do something that hasn’t been done in nearly 20 years. Annika Sorenstam was the last player to come into a major on the heels of four consecutive victories. Sorenstam’s feat stretched between the end of the 2004 season and the beginning of 2005. She won what was then known as the Kraft Nabisco Championship by eight strokes for her fifth consecutive title.

Nancy Lopez is the only other player to win five consecutive starts during a magical 1978 rookie season which saw her win nine times,

After winning three titles in three straight weeks, Korda had last week off as the LPGA went dark during the Masters. The 25-year-old spent a little time at the beach and connected with family.

“Last week I was so tired,” she said. “I don’t think I’ve ever been that tired. I would wake up and I was ready to go back to bed, but I couldn’t. It’s almost to the point where you just can’t sleep; you’re just overly tired.

“Made sure to prioritize any rest. My parents are on top of me to not overdo it. I always want to practice more, do more to be better. So made sure to prioritize my rest and making sure to go to sleep early and sleeping a lot, too. That’s the number one thing for recovery.

“Overall this week I feel really good.”

Korda’s quest for a second career major title and piece of history begins on Thursday at the Club at Carlton Woods. Here’s what players past and present are saying about her sensational form:
