Nelly Korda appears to be set to return to professional golf at the U.S. Women's Open in Southern Pines, North Carolina, on June 2.

Korda announced her return Friday on Instagram.

The 23-year-old was diagnosed with a blood clot in March and hasn't played on the LPGA Tour since the LPGA Drive On Championship in early February.

She tweeted on April 8 that she had undergone successful surgery for the blood clot in her subclavian vein.

Korda has seven career victories on the LPGA Tour, is the reigning Olympic gold medalist in women's golf, and is currently ranked No. 2 in the Women's World Golf Rankings.
