Three weeks ahead of the LPGA’s first major, Nelly Korda is being treated for a blood clot in her right arm.
The world No. 2, and reigning Olympic gold medalist, revealed the disturbing news on Instagram.
“On Friday, I went to Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, to take pictures and appear at the show,” wrote Korda.
“On the advice of my doctor, I went to the Emergency Room as a precaution. I was diagnosed with a blood clot.
“I am currently receiving treatment at home to eliminate further risks. I will report your status. me and as more information becomes available.
“In the meantime, I’d like to thank everyone for their support and ask for privacy for our entire family during this time. I hope to be back soon!”
Korda was reportedly vacccinated ahead of the Tokyo Summer Olympics. A blood clot is one of the more serious side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines. Last month, both the CDC and Pfizer posted PSAs, which some criticized as an attempt to normalize a serious medical condition.
