World’s 2nd-ranked player in women’s golf diagnosed with blood clot in arm
Nelly Korda announced Sunday afternoon that she was at home receiving treatment after she was diagnosed with a blood clot in one of her arms.
Korda, 23, said she was doing a morning workout on Friday when her arm “started to feel like it was swelling.”
After consulting with her doctor, Korda went to the emergency room in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, where she was for a sponsor obligation that included a photoshoot and commercial appearance.

“I will communicate my status as and when there is more information,” Korda said. “In the meantime, I want to thank everyone for their support and ask for privacy for all our family during this time. I hope to be back soon.”
Korda is an American who stands 5 feet and 10 inches. She started playing golf at an early age and joined sister Jessica Korda on the LPGA Tour in 2017. She just recently won gold at the Tokyo Olympics.
