The current year’s Evian Championship has been dropped due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic.
The coordinators of the competition, which is the fifth ladies’ Major, had been seeking after the 2020 reestablishment to proceed at the famous French scene at a previously overhauled date (August 6-9), however the competition board of trustees has now chosen to drop it and return in July 2021.
An announcement gave by Franck Riboud, executive of The Evian Championship, stated: “The progressing vulnerability concerning the opening of outskirts, specifically with Asia and the USA, represents a significant hazard to the association of an opposition, which is under about two months, needs to invite 120 players from around the globe and from more than 30 countries. Even if in France limitations concerning outside open occasions appear to be bit by bit facilitating, the LPGA and The Evian Championship’s arranging advisory group need to perceive that the conditions for a protected and loosened up occasion that satisfies the hopes of general society, players, coordinators, and their accomplices are not set up. On this, as the wearing schedule doesn’t consider a rescheduling of the date (which was at that point delayed half a month prior from July to August), the competition will be played in July 2021.”
Mr. Riboud included: “We have sat tight for whatever length of time that authoritative issues permit to settle on this choice with Mike Whan and the LPGA. In any case, shockingly, it was unavoidable taking into account the circumstance with respect to US travel to Continental Europe. Our top need is obviously to guarantee everybody remains sound and safe.
The Evian Championship, which is co-authorized by the Ladies European Tour and the LPGA Tour, turned into a Major in 2013, in the wake of being recently known as The Evian Masters. The present victor is South Korea’s Ko Jin-youthful.
