Nelly Korda withdraws from KPMG Women’s PGA Championship with injury

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – Nelly Korda has withdrawn from the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. The World No. 2 opened the tournament with a 1-over 71 at Aronimink and trailed early leaders Kelly Tan and Brittany Lincicome by four strokes.

Korda cited discomfort in her back as the reason on her Instagram post, noting that she planned to see a specialist.

Korda lost in a playoff last month at the ANA Inspiration and was a heavy favorite coming into the season’s third major. She finished fifth at the ShopRite LPGA Classic last week.

Older sister, Jessica, shot 3 over in the first round.
