Evian Masters Preview & Pairings

After a two-week break, the LPGA resumes its schedule this week with the playing of the Evian Masters Presented by Societe Generale. This is tournament number 15 of 27 on this year's schedule. Next year this tournament will be the tour's fifth major championship.

Here are some details:

Course: Evian Masters Golf Club
Location: Evian-les-Bains, France
Defending Champion: Ai Miyazato
Winning Score:  68-68-67-70 = 273 (-15)

Final Field: 111 Players
Par: 36/36 = 72
Yardage: 6,334 yards
Purse: $3.250 Million

My strength of field rating is 75%, making it the second-strongest field of the year. The top 33 golfers on the LPGA priority list are all teeing it up this week.

Here Re the Pairings and Tee Times for the first 2 Rounds:

Here are the television times:
Jul 26 - GC 6:30 PM-8:30 PM EST
Jul 27 - GC 6:30 PM-8:30 PM EST
Jul 28 - GC 1:00 PM-6:00 PM EST
Jul 29 - GC 6:00 AM-11:00 AM EST

For all those who are interested in watching the telecast, I would advise not going to any websites for results the first 3 days of the tournament, as the final day's results will be posted before the television broadcast. It appears Sunday's final round broadcast will be live. I will not post results (and I am asking The Constructivist to hold back also), until after the broadcast is complete.

Other Tidbits:
Cheyenne Woods, once again, has received a sponsor exemption this week.
The tour's next stop, the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic, has announced that their sponsor exemptions will go to University of Alabama graduate Brooke Pancake and Duke University junior Lindy Duncan.

Any thoughts on Park Hee Young's 65with the use of a belly putter? or is it just fodder for the ongoing debate.

I guess it has a connection with the ongoing debate.
