Heading into the 2024 U.S. Women's Open at the Lancaster Country Club, Nelly Korda is a massive favorite to win the competition. This season, Korda has been at her absolute best as she has managed to win a total of six events on the LPGA Tour. At the U.S. Women's Open, she will be eyeing her seventh title.

Korda, who became the third woman to win five consecutive events, has been one of the best hitters of the ball this season on the LPGA Tour. However, apart from hitting the ball well, she has also managed to stay consistent. When asked how she managed her consistency, Korda credited her coaches.

In an interview ahead of the U.S. Women's Open, Korda spoke about the difference it made having a coach during the event. She said:

“I rarely had a coach out here with me last year and the years before. And I love the fact that I have one out here now, because before, if I wasn’t hitting it well – it’s different to have someone out here versus FaceTiming them and trying to figure it out on your own. Actually, having that face-to-face conversation and them putting you in that position and kind of feeling it, because feel versus real is very, very different."

Having a coach has indeed benefitted Nelly Korda greatly. The solitary instance this season where she competed without her coaches, at The Cognizant Founders Open, resulted in her not securing a victory. Hence, along with her coaches, Korda will look to win her seventh title this season at the 2024 U.S. Women's Open.
