I hope you managed to stay up and watch Nelly Korda make history, equalling Nancy Lopez and Annika Sorenstam’s record of five consecutive wins. Nelly is like a machine, she never looks like she’s going to miss anything, especially 20ft putts. I wish my swing was as balanced as hers, in fact, I wish I was a lot more like her in many ways! 
But she is human after all because she explained in her post-round interview that she felt sick to the stomach, and was pleased when it was all over so she could breathe again. Controlling nerves is horrible, I’m sure we’ve all been there when you’ve got a good card going or you’re all-square playing the 18th. 
Given what was at stake, it’s hardly surprising that Nelly began to falter on the back 9, but only slightly because she then nailed a tee shot that hit the pin on the par-3 17th and then set up a nice birdie on the 18th to claim her second Major title. That’s why she’s World No 1! 
You could be forgiven for having missed out on watching The Chevron Championship because the majority of it was shown on Sky Sports Mix, and you had to scroll quite a long way down to get to this channel. I noticed some disgruntled posts on the Ladies Golf Lounge Facebook group and people contacted me over the weekend to ask how they could watch the women’s golf.
I know I had a moan about the scheduling of the Chevron last week as it clashed with the men’s RBC Heritage, so in terms of broadcasting, the women’s event was playing second fiddle. As luck would have it, rain suspended play when Scottie Scheffler was on his way to winning another title, which meant that the final round of the Chevron became available to watch on Sky’s primary sports and golf channels. 
I must admit, I did think the crowds would be bigger, especially for a Major championship. Unfortunately, that’s part of the problem because we’ve still got a considerable distance to cover in attracting anywhere near the attendance numbers and viewing figures that men’s events command. It’s frustrating, and despite women’s golf viewing figures increasing, until we can close the gap, men’s golf will take priority. 
Isn’t it great that we’ve got another British superstar in the making - Lottie Woad. You’ll remember that she recently won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, birdieing the last 3 holes over the famous course to take the title by one stroke. Part of her prize was entry into four of this year’s women’s Majors and at the Chevron, she tied 23rd on one-under par with 6 other players including fellow Englishwomen Charley Hull and Georgia Hall. That is impressive and we can look forward to cheering on Lottie at the AIG Women’s Open in August.
Now, will Nelly break the record this week and make it six titles in a row? I wouldn’t put it past her!
