Nelly Korda’s Endorsement Deals

How much is Nelly Korda worth if most of her income is made outside the game? It’s hard to say since she decided not to disclose those numbers to the public. However, we know that she has several endorsement deals with prominent companies.


Nike signed an endorsement deal with Korda in January of 2024. They’re one of the biggest athletic apparel brands and only partners with the best athletes. While the exact numbers are unknown, it’s reported as Nike’s biggest partnership in women’s golf since signing a $20 million deal with Michelle Wie West. They also sponsor golf legend Tiger Woods.

Korda now reps Nike whenever she plays, particularly their Jordans 1 golf shoes. She previously had a contract with the Swedish clothing brand J. Lindeberg, but the new deal with Nike signals the end of that one. Both were signed as exclusive contracts for a certain number of years.


The day after she announced her deal with Nike, Korda revealed that she also signed with TaylorMade. The golf equipment company used to partner with everyone to spread their name, but recently they’ve been focusing on multi-year contracts with a few talented athletes. Korda signed with them after she tested their equipment and found their passion for the game matched her own. She’ll be using all TaylorMade clubs, their TP5 ball, and branded headgear and bag.

Korda used to be endorsed by equipment maker Titleist. In case you were wondering, she prefers the draw-bias HD driver, P770s in longer iron, and P7MCs in shorter iron. She wants to keep testing different equipment, though. As with Nike, we don’t know how much TaylorMade is contributing to Nelly Korda’s net worth.

Other Endorsements

When Forbes profiled Nelly Korda for their 30 Under 30 and Highest-Paid Female Athletes lists in 2022, they cited over a dozen sponsors of the golfer. A few examples are Hanwha Q Cells, UKG, Cisco, and Richard Mille.

Nelly Korda’s Investments

Nelly Korda is generally known as a smart businesswoman. Since she keeps her financial details private, she likely has some investments we don’t know about. However, there is one that’s more public. Nelly and her sister Jessica, also an LGPA professional golfer, are investors and brand ambassadors for LivPur Nutrition. The company sells hydrating nutritional supplements that many golfers use.

The Korda sisters both vouch for the products and use them on a daily basis.

Nelly Korda’s Luxuries: From Homes to Cars

By all accounts, Nelly Korda is down-to-earth and doesn’t live a luxurious lifestyle. She’s building a new house in her hometown of Bradenton, Florida, and hasn’t said much about it except that the process is stressful. She admitted to buying a gaming laptop while traveling so she could relax with Call of Duty or Modern Warfare after a tough tournament.

It seems that Korda’s only pricey obsession is Richard Mille watches. The Swiss luxury brand made her an ambassador in 2019 when she was 20 years old. By that time Korda was already drawing attention for her golf skills, and people couldn’t help but notice the $250,000 Richard Mille RM 007 on her wrist. The brand didn’t even have women’s sport watches at the time; they released a line in 2024. Korda loved them regardless.

Total Earning Milestones for Nelly Korda

We may not know all the details of Nelly Korda’s net worth, but we can still follow some of her earning milestones throughout her career.

  • $10,000 — Korda debuted as a pro golfer in the Symetra Tour of 2016. While she had participated in tournaments since she was 15, this was the first where she made some money. She finished 9th on the money list and earned $10,806.
  • $100,000 — After earning her LGPA Tour card for 2017, Korda dove into the game and quickly earned her first $100,000 in winnings.
  • $1,000,000 — Korda won her first LGPA Tour title in the Swinging Skirts Taiwan Championship in 2018, and that’s the year she officially became a millionaire.
  • $3,000,000 — Most sources cited this as Nelly Korda’s net worth through 2021.
  • $5,400,000+ — At some point after winning gold for the U.S. in the Summer Olympics, losing her world #1 ranking, suffering from a blood clot, and returning to golf to regain her #1 ranking, Nelly Korda’s career earnings and endorsements put her at or above the $5 million mark.

Korda began playing golf with her father and sister when she was only six years old. It didn’t take her long to start competing, and she began her professional career right at 18.

Nelly Korda’s Amateur Career

Korda played in the U.S. Women’s Open in 2013, making the cut the month before her 15th birthday. She was a member of the U.S. Junior Solheim Cup in 2015. That same year, she won the 2015 PING Invitational and 2015 Harter Hall Invitational, and became a 2015 AJGA Rolex Junior All-American.

Nelly Korda’s Tour Career

In 2016, Nelly Korda began her professional career with a win on the Symetra Tour. She earned her LPGA Tour card for 2017, and in 2018 got her first LGPA victory. It was in the Swinging Skirts LPGA Taiwan Championship in Taoyuan, Taiwan. Her older sister, Jessica Korda, also won. They were the third pair of sisters to win in LPGA history, putting both of them in the spotlight.

2019 Australia Women’s Open

In February of 2019, Nelly Korda won the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open and made history for her family. She completed the “Family Slam” in Australia. Her father won the 1998 Australian Open singles in tennis, her older sister won the 2012 Women’s Australian Open, and her younger brother won the 2018 Australian Open junior boys in tennis. This win also pushed Korda into the top ten of the Women’s World Golf Rankings for the first time. She moved from 16th to 9th, with the only higher-ranked American woman being Lexi Thompson in 5th.

Korda’s Breakout Year

2021 was the year that cemented Korda as a golf superstar. She became the first two-time winner in the 2021 LPGA season, and her next win made her the #1 ranked player in the world. In August of that year, Korda represented the U.S. in the Summer Olympics. She won the gold medal, making her only the second woman from the U.S. to do so — and the first since Margaret Abbott in 1900. The victories kept coming the rest of that year, and she held on to her #1 spot despite fierce competition.
