World number one Nellie Korda will begin her quest for a second major title alongside Japan’s Nasa Hatoka and England’s Charlie Hull in the opening two rounds of the AIG Women’s Open in Carnoustie, Scotland, this week.

The 23-year-old American, who won gold at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this month, is aiming to win her second major title this year after winning the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in June.

Korda will start at 8:09 am on Thursday (0709 GMT), while defending champion Sofia Popov will take the course at 12:05 am (1105 GMT) in a marquee group that also includes Sei Young Kim and Jessica Korda.
