World No. 2 Nelly Korda signs with TaylorMade and Nike to start 2023 season

World No. 2 Nelly Korda signs with TaylorMade and Nike to start 2023 season

Nelly Korda’s changes for 2023 aren’t limited to her appeal. Shortly after the announcement that she had joined the Nike staff, TaylorMade posted that the world number 2 had joined her roster.

Starting this week at the Hilton Grand Vacations LPGA Tournament of Champions at Lake Nona in Florida, Korda will play with a bag full of TaylorMade equipment and TP5 golf balls. Korda will also wear TaylorMade-branded hats and sport a TaylorMade staff bag.

“I signed with TaylorMade because of their proven ability to elevate the game of the world’s best golfers,” Korda said in a statement. “In testing with the tour team, it was clear that I was not only working with high-performance teams, but also with a team that shared my passion for working as hard as possible to be in the best position to win. I am delighted to be part of the TaylorMade team.”

Korda’s bag includes the following:

  • Stealth 2 HD 9 degree driver

  • Stealth 2 15 degrees 3-wood

  • Stealth 2 21 degrees 7-wood

  • P-770 5-6 irons

  • P-7MC 7-PW

  • Milled Grind 3 Shims 50 Degree and 54 Degree

  • TP5 ball

The company noted that the 24-year-old Korda, whose eight LPGA wins include a major, preferred the bias-draw head look on the Stealth 2 HD controller, matching his preferred shooting style. The P-770 long irons gave him the height he needed to hold the greens from 180 yards out, while the P-7MC shorter irons gave him the desired distance control.

The 2020 Olympic gold medalist begins her seventh full LPGA season this week in Lake Nona, where she won a different event, the Gainbridge LPGA, in 2021.
