LPGA Tour Cancels Evian Championship
The LPGA Tour has announce that is has canceled the Evian Championship due to ongoing travel/border restrictions and government quarantine requirements as part of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I have been incredibly impressed by the entire team at The Evian Championship. They worked so hard to host this global event despite the obvious challenges. They know that high-pursed, career-changing events like The Evian are more important than ever, especially in an LPGA year that has been drastically reduced due to COVID-19. I know this was a tough decision for everyone involved, but it’s one that we had to take given the restrictions we faced,” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan.
The tournament was originally scheduled to take place from August 6 -9.
The Evian Championship will return to the LPGA scheduled in 2021 at Evian Resort Golf Club in France.
Whan added, “It is disappointing to miss a major championship but Evian’s strong history of showcasing the best female golfers will continue once again when we return in 2021. We look forward to being back on the mountain in Evian next year and for a long time to come.”
