LPGA Prepares for Fourth Major at Evian Championship
It’s the major season in the golf world—after last week’s Open Championship in England, the Senior Open Championship takes place this weekend, along with the LPGA’s Evian Championship, which is the fourth major on the women’s tour. Let’s take a closer look into the Korn Ferry preview
The event, held at the Evian Resort Golf Club in France, returns after a one-year break due to COVID-19. Jin Young Ko won the event in 2019, defeating Jennifer Kupcho, Shanshan Feng, and Hyo Joo Kim by two strokes each in what was her second major victory of that year.
Ko’s biggest challenger is expected to be Nelly Korda, who is the top-ranked female golfer in the world and won the Women’s PGA Championship in June. Anna Nordqvist and Angela Stanford won the event the prior two years and will be looking for another victory as well. Lizette Salas finished second at the Women’s PGA and has top-six finishes in three of her last five starts. Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis are among the veterans who have won this event and are also entered.

Korn Ferry Tour Tees Off at Price Cutter Charity Championship
Celebrities will join the Korn Ferry Tour regulars for the Price Cutter Charity Championship Presented by Dr. Pepper this weekend. Included in the celebrity roster at Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield, Missouri is former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current NFL broadcaster Tony Romo.
The defending champion is Max McGreevy, and eight of the top 10 players in the Korn Ferry Tour point standings are playing in this event. That includes Taylor Moore, who won his first tournament last week at the Memorial Health Championship and has 10 top-10 finishes on tour this season. Current tour points leader Stephan Jaeger is also expected to be in the mix, as he’s won six Korn Ferry Tour events over the course of his career.
Chad Ramey also seems like he’s poised for a run of victories. He’s third in the standings and has 19 top-25 finishes in 37 starts, including a win last month in Maine. Taylor Pendrith hasn’t won this season, but he does have three top-3 finishes to his credit, and Erik Barnes is coming off a runner-up finish at the Memorial Health Championship last week.
