Nelly Korda's pursuit of a sixth straight victory will have to wait.

The world's No. 1 player has withdrawn from this week's JM Eagle LA Championship due to fatigue.

"After the unbelievable week at the Chevron and grinding through the mental and physical challenges of four events in the past five weeks, I am definitely feeling exhausted," Korda wrote in a statement Monday. "With so much still to come throughout 2024, I feel I need to listen to my body and get some rest, so I can be ready for the remainder of the season."

Korda claimed the Chevron Championship on Sunday to match an LPGA record with her fifth straight victory. Nancy Lopez (1978) and Annika Sorenstam (2004-05) are the only others to accomplish the feat.

The 25-year-old's unbelievable run began in January when she won the LPGA Drive On Championship. Korda followed that up with a pair of victories in March at the Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship and Ford Championship.

Before winning the first major of the season, Korda beat Leona Maguire at the T-Mobile Match Play final.

Korda has 13 career LPGA victories under her belt.
