LPGA & LET in France, Amundi Evian Championship 2021, Évian-les-Bains, 22-25th July
The Ladies have arrived in Evian, France, on the edge of Lake Geneva
Many of the world's best lady golfers have arrived in Evian, edging Lake Geneva. It has been a long journey for all of them. Some have made the five hour flight across Europe from Finland, where Matilda Castren triumphed on her home turf at the Gant Ladies Open. Some, including most Aussies, have made the longer flight of around nine hours from Michigan. Meanwhile for one Aussie, Stephanie Kyriacou, competing at Evian has meant travelling for 20+ hours. Stephanie recently won the Big Green Egg Open, while last year she won the Australian Ladies Classic Bonville by 8 strokes.
The other Australians competing at Evian are Sarah Kemp, Minjee Lee, Su Oh and Katherine Kirk.
