En rose with anticipation. The French Alps await the arrival of 132 players from 28 different countries. Overlooking the beautiful Lake Geneva on July 11, LET and LPGA pros will showcase their golf talents at the fourth major of the season—the 2024 Amundi Evian Championship. The crème de la crème of women’s golf, including nine of the top 10 players, will be teeing off at the Evian Resort Golf Club.

Among them is Nelly Korda, who aims to redeem herself after disappointing performances in her last two major outings, missing the cut in both. But who is she teeing off with? Golf enthusiasts can find out who she is paired with, as the tee times and pairings for the first round of the fourth major of this season have been released!

The opening round is scheduled to begin at 7:00 a.m. CET, with groups of three playing on the greens. Two trios will tee off concurrently at all the decided starting times, beginning with the group of Isabella Fierro, Olivia Cowan, Savannah Grewal, and So Mi Lee, Anne Van Dam, and Stephanie Kyriacou teeing off at #1 and #10, respectively.

Nine past champions will also grace the Evian-Les-Bains greens, including defending champion Celine Boutier. Lydia Ko. The 2015 Amundi Evian Champion, will aim to regain her 2024 season momentum. A win at the Amundi Championship would not only mark her third major title but also provide the final push needed for her induction into the LPGA Hall of Fame. Additionally, Charley Hull will be making a comeback from her injuries in this major. However, despite the power-packed field, a few notable players will be missing.

Headlining the list of absentees is Lexi Thompson, who had a final chance to prove herself on the French greens before retirement. The LPGA pro’s history with the event has been rocky for some time. It reached a boiling point in 2019 when she missed the cut in the same. After expressing her disappointment in an Instagram post, she chose never to return to the Evian Championship.

Another notable absence from the field is Ruoning Yin, who after winning the Dow Championship, revealed that she would not be a part of the major due to a wrist injury. Expressing her situation, she said, “I mean, I can play, but the difference is just, play with the pain or play without the pain.” She took the decision so that she could be well and healthy for the upcoming Paris Olympics. Additionally, another top golfer, Xiyu Lin, decided not to play in the major. However, the reason for her absence is not clear.

Who do you think will take home the winner’s share from the $8 million prize purse, the largest of 2024? Do you think Nelly Korda will secure her second major win of the year?
