Nelly Korda often plays with sister, Jessica, on the LPGA. Now she'll compete with her father
Nelly Korda plays in the same events all the time with sister Jessica on the LPGA Tour. Now she’ll get a chance to compete with her father, Petr, as well.
On Tuesday, officials with the PNC Championship, the two-player family team event held at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, announced that Nelly will be partnering with her dad for the first time in the competition in December.
“After all these years of him watching and supporting us kids from the sidelines in both golf and tennis, it is going to be so much fun to be in a team competing together,” Nelly said in a press release. “The whole family is looking forward to enjoying this in the run up to Christmas.”
The No. 1 player in the Rolex Women’s Rankings and a four-time winner in 2021, Nelly became eligible for participation in the event after winning her first career major at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in June. The 20-team field is limited to male or female pros who have won a major championship or the Players Championship.
Mind you, Petr Korda is a major champion himself, albeit in tennis after taking the men’s title at the 1998 Australian Open.
During her amateur days, Nelly often used her father as a caddie in professional events.
In addition to the Kordas making their debut, tournament officials announced that Henrik Stenson will be in the field for the first time, teaming up with his 11-year-old son Karl. “I cannot wait to share the inside the ropes competitive experience with my son against so many icons of the game,” Stenson said. “We feel very privileged to be part of such an amazing field.”
Also competing in 2021 will be Gary Player, Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, David Duval, John Daly, Vijay Singh, Stewart Cink and Matt Kuchar.
Unclear is whether Mike and Justin Thomas will be back to defend their 2020 title. Mike Thomas recently underwent treatment for a blood clot in his lung and is recovering at home in Kentucky. Justin noted in the last few weeks he was hoping his father would be healthy enough to play.
Another notable twosome from 2020 will be missing. Tiger Woods played alongside his son Charlie a year ago in the event for the first time. Tiger continues to rehab from injuries suffered in a February car accident.
Ashanti and Nelly were two of the biggest R&B singers in the music industry in the early 2000s. The two superstar singers became a couple not long after they met, and their relationship lasted several years outside the public eye.
Nelly and Ashanti dated in the early 2000s
Nelly’s debut single “Country Grammar (Hot S—)” launched him to stardom in 2000. His Country Grammar album, released the same year, cemented him as one of music’s hottest new artists. The album has sold over 10 million copies to date, making it one of the few hip-hop albums to achieve RIAA Diamond certification.
Ashanti also burst onto the scene with her debut. Her first solo single, 2002’s “Foolish,” spent 10 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Foolish” came after her collaborations with Fat Joe and Ja Rule, “What’s Luv?” and “Always on Time,” which reached the top two spots on the Hot 100 chart. Ashanti became the first female singer to achieve that feat.
Naturally, the two R&B singers eventually crossed paths. According to HITC, Nelly and Ashanti first met in 2003 at a Grammy Awards press conference and they reportedly fell for each other. “The first time I met Nelly he asked me for my autograph, but I think he was being sarcastic and I remember writing it down on the program,” Ashanti recalled in an interview with Rap-Up. “It all started out as a joke. For the record, it took him a long time to get my number.”
Everyone in the industry knew that Nelly and Ashanti were an item, but the couple made it a point to keep their relationship private. They dated on and off for several years.

Nelly and Ashanti dated on and off for 11 years
In 2010, Nelly even told Rap-Up that he was considering marrying Ashanti. But the marriage plans never came to fruition, as it was announced in April 2014 that the couple had gone their separate ways after 11 years of on and off dating.
Ashanti first hinted at their breakup — and the reason they split up — on The Meredith Vieira Show in 2015. “I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities, it allows them to act out of character,” the “Foolish” singer said. “I’ve been betrayed. You just have to grow. You have to grow up. You have to accept responsibility for the things that you do. I’m not a big fan of people being cowards.”
Ashanti also threw shade at Nelly at a concert in 2018. She hinted at being betrayed before, and when someone in the audience shouted, “F— Nelly!” she pointed at them and said, “Word.”

Nelly and Ashanti reunited in 2021
In September 2021, Ashanti and Nelly saw each other for the first time since their breakup. They reunited at the iconic Verzuz battle between Fat Joe and Ja Rule, with whom both of them have collaborated. Both Nelly and Ashanti went on stage to perform their hits with the rappers, and at one point, they even gave each other a hug.
Ashanti told Fat Joe in an Instagram Live after the Verzuz battle that she didn’t even expect to see him there. She even revealed that they hadn’t seen each other since they broke up.
“Now look, this is the crazy part: I had no idea he was gonna be there and I haven’t seen him or spoken to him since we broke up,” she recalled. “So, I didn’t know what to expect. I seen him move you out the way.”
“I wasn’t expecting it,” she continued, laughing. “And that’s the crazy thing! I seen his eyes get big and I didn’t know what was gonna happen. I didn’t know what to expect. It was positive.”
“I’m a very positive person and very private, and I wish him the best and all that good stuff,” she concluded.
Nelly Korda takes the lead in Aramco Team Series, aims for 5th win of 2021
By: Zephyr Melton
OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — The Aramco Team Series – New York is two thirds of the way to completion, and the final round is sure to be full of excitement. Here are a few things to know heading into the final round.
World No. 1 in the lead
Nelly Korda’s name has been a fixture near the top of leaderboards in 2021, and this week at Glen Oaks Club is no different. The 23-year-old superstar holds a one-shot lead in the individual standings at the Aramco Series after rounds of 69 and 66 over the first 36 holes.
Through 15 holes in her second round, Korda was on pace to break Glen Oaks competitive course record of 64 as she sat at eight under walking to the 16th tee. However, bogeys on 16 and 18 coming home foiled her flawless round as she settled for 66 by day’s end.
Tomorrow, Korda will aim for her fifth worldwide win during the calendar year, and her second since ascending to world No. 1 in late June.
“I just need to go with the flow and stick with my game plan,” Korda said.
A repeat in the works?
Allison Lee notched her first professional victory just two months ago at the Aramco Team Series – Sotogrande, and she has a terrific opportunity tomorrow to capture No. 2 at the New York edition of the event. The 26-year-old is eight under through 36 holes, and trails leader Nelly Korda by just one shot.
Lee, a former top-25 player in the world, has struggled in recent years as she fell outside the top 200 in the world as recently as March of this year. However, she’s played strong over the latter half of the summer — including her win in Spain in August — as she looks to become the first two-time winner in the Aramco Team Series.
Major winner in the mix
Sophia Popov has not won since her out-of-nowhere triumph at the AIG Women’s Open last summer, but tomorrow she’ll have a chance to do just that. The German is T6 through 36 holes at Glen Oaks, just three shots behind Nelly Korda’s lead.
“I just need to stay aggressive,” Popov said. “Today in some key moments of the round I just wasn’t as aggressive as I feel like I should’ve been.”
After a bogey-free Day 1 at the Aramco Team Series, Popov was unable to keep bogeys off the card during Round 2. She made three bogeys and a double to go along with four birdies on Friday as she fired a 73.
Nonetheless, Popov is still within striking distance of Korda’s lead heading into the final round, and she’ll have an excellent opportunity to earn another victory tomorrow.

TAPPAN, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Janson Media today announced the North American premiere of Nelly Rapp - Monster Agent, the new family-friendly horror-comedy from Swedish director Amanda Adolfsson. The 92-minute feature (Sweden, 2020) was based on a script by Sofie Forsman, and produced by Annika Sucksdorff. The film headlined opening weekend at the 2021 Brooklyn Horror Film Festival at the Stuart Cinema, Sunday October 17th.
Delightfully quirky and laugh-out-loud funny, NELLY RAPP - MONSTER AGENT is a joyful romp for audiences of all ages.
Nelly Rapp - Monster Agent stars Matilda Gross in the lead role. Nelly is a 10-year old girl with no friends. She and her dog London begin an autumn holiday with her eccentric uncle. Soon she notices that Uncle Hannibal is a bit, well… different. Snooping around his mansion, Nelly learns an incredible secret. Her family are members of an international brigade of Monster Agents, with a long history of keeping people safe from the denizens of the Otherworld. As the young Nelly excitedly tries to carry on the family tradition she gets dragged into a wild adventure filled with ghosts, vampires and werewolves.
"A charming horror-comedy that's both hilarious and heartfelt, Amanda Adolfsson's family-friendly gem winks at genre touchstones like Universal Monsters while still forming its own delightfully playful identity," said Matt Barone of Complex. "It's monster-heavy fun for all ages."
Nelly Rapp - Monster Agent had its European premiere at Berlinale 2021, where it was nominated for the Generation Kplus competition of the Berlin International Film Festival.
"Despite her outsider status, and undeterred by her single father's suggestion to at least pretend to be normal, her personality remains plucky and cheerful; with red hair, freckles and a mischievous expression on her face, Nelly clearly follows in the tradition of her fellow Swedish girl hero Pippi Longstocking. Both delightfully quirky and laugh-out-loud funny, Nelly Rapp is a joyful romp for an audience of all ages. Bringing a Scandinavian freshness to age-old tropes, this is a worthy addition to the canon of monster films," wrote Josefine Algieri for One Room with a View.
The film, from century-old Nordic production company SF Studios, also stars Lily Wahlsteen, Marianne Mörck and Johan Rheborg. Following the festival premiere, the film's North American digital premiere is set for October 22nd on Amazon Prime Video, where it will be available for rental or purchase. The English dubbed version was produced by Janson Media.

At 76, Nelly Obiomachukwunyerem Mgbemena went to be with the Lord on October 12, 2021 at The Ottawa General Hospital. Born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria as the eldest of 10 children of Sydney and Patricia Ude, and the first grandchild of Chief Umezuruike Eronini, this natural caregiver went on to become a Registered Nurse.

A proud Nigerian and leader, Nelly, was very involved with the Igbo Association of the Nigerian Community in Ottawa.

Nelly was always ready to set an extra plate at the table, opening her heart and her home to all who entered.
Mum, we love you so much and will miss you. Rest in peace with the lord until we meet to part no more. A celebration of Nelly’s life will be held at Christ Church Cathedral on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 1 pm. Due to covid-19 restrictions, there is limited attendance allowed at the church.

Nelly Korda atop individual field at Armaco Team Series
World No. 1 Nelly Korda has the individual competition lead after two rounds of the Aramco Team Series event at the Glen Oaks Club in Old Westbury.
On Friday, Korda shot a 6-under-par 66 for a two-round total of 135, giving her a one-stroke lead over fellow American Alison Lee in the Ladies European Tour event, the first one ever held in the U.S.
"The event, I like it. It kind of keeps it easy-going out there," Korda said. "You are playing not just for yourself but for your team, which is cool. I actually enjoyed it a lot. You get to kind of bond with [your team]."
In team play, Bronte Law’s foursome of fellow pros Kelsey MacDonald, Amy Boulden and amateur Jordan Ziegler have the lead with a two-round total of 257, 31 strokes under par.
Ziegler, the president of the Glen Oaks Club, contributed five shots on Friday, the same as he did in the opening round on Thursday. Two scores per hole per group count with the amateur’s handicap coming into play.
In second place was the team captained by Lee-Anne Pace which included pros Christine Wolf and Karoline Lund with amateur Michael Muenchow. They are at 30 strokes under.
The team captained by Nelly Korda’s sister Jessica is tied for third at 29 under.
In the individual competition, Americans Danielle Kang (69) and Lindsay Weaver (66) are tied for third with Pia Babnik (69) of Slovenia, two shots back of Korda.
The tournament concludes Saturday.
