Watch Nelly Korda and Tiger Woods's first meeting at the 2021 PNC Championship

Tiger Woods and Nelly Korda, who is ranked second in the world, are both set to play in the PNC Championship, which starts on Friday, December 14.


Fifteen, at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.

Both of them will be on the field three times this season.

But Nelly met the 15-time major winner for the first time two years ago. Like everyone else, she was a little nervous before she met her hero and asked him to take a picture with her.

The strange event happened at the 2021 PNC Championship, where Korda met Tiger after her round. After his bad car accident in February of that year, Tiger was taking part in the event. That moment, Korda was the second best golfer in the world, having won an Olympic gold medal and a major title. He nervously approached Tiger and said,

“Hi, Tiger…” May I please have your permission to take a picture?”

Even though Woods agreed with her and told her it was set in stone, Korda claimed she didn’t want to bother the veteran.

“I didn’t want to bother you right now, but I really wanted a photo,” she said.

The young LPGA star then got the 82-time PGA Tour winner to meet her brother Sebastian Korda and father Petr Korda. For those who don’t know, Sebastian is ranked 24th in the world in the ATP rankings right now, and Petr has won the Australian Open before.

First, Petr took a picture of Nelly and Tiger. Then, Nelly’s dad and brother were able to get a picture with the famous player because Tiger took over the camera.

After the first round, Woods asked Nelly what score they got. She told him that they got 63, which included a birdie by Petr. She looked thrilled after her meeting and said, “dream come true!” with joy.

Nelly later said it was “pretty cool” to play with the best musician ever. She said that she was a big fan of Woods when she was younger and would watch her favorite golfer play on TV.

Tiger and Charlie Woods came in second place that year with a score of 25-under. In their last round, they made 11 birdies in a row, but they were still two shots behind John Daly and John Daly II. At 17-under, Team Korda came in 12th place by itself.

Team Korda did a little better than Team Woods last year. They tied for fifth place with 21 under, one stroke ahead of Tiger and Charlie Woods.
