(Reuters) - Former world number one Nelly Korda said on Friday she will return to competition at next week's U.S. Women's Open in North Carolina after having been sidelined since early March when she was diagnosed with a blood clot in one of her arms.

Korda, a seven-time winner on the LPGA Tour who before this season disclosed she had COVID-19 in January, had surgery in April to remove a blood clot from her left arm that kept her out of the year's first major.
