Who would do better than Karen Escher?

Céline Poitier, Perrin Delacour, Pauline Roussin-Bouchard, and Agathe Laesne are the four French women participating in this ninth edition of the Amundi Evian Championship. Since 2013, when the Evian Masters entered the sealed tournament so far in the main version, none of the three colors has been able to take 15th place. With a 20th place finish in 2015, Karen Escher remains the reference point. So this year?

Is this the year of tapping for French women in Amundi Evian Championship ? Since 2013, when the championship became the fifth championship of the season on LPGA TourNo player of the three colors was able to climb to the 20th place. In 2015, Karen Escher He finished in this position after playing 71, 68, 71 and 72 (-2). It remains to this day the “consequence to beat” of the Tricolor clan which, let’s not hide, is not in its favor on theEvian Resort Golf Club.

Karen Escher, still she, actually did best the previous year by finishing 27th at +2 (282), ahead of Celine Potter, still an amateur, 29 at +3 (287). Having been a pro since then, she’s back in the top 30 again in 2021: 29 at -5 (279) with cards of 69, 72, 68 and 70.

Céline Poitier, the safe bet

What will it be in 2022? Céline Pottier, who is playing her 28th leading role this week since British 2013 – Evian’s sixth personal championship – with some advantages. In 14 starts, she only missed one cut (at PGA Championship end of June). Dallas (Texas)-based Francilini finished four times in the top five (once three and three times fourth (particularly in the Chevron Championship)). The 23rd player in the world, ranked thirteenth in the The Race to the CME World Season.

Beautiful surprise can also come Pauline Rossin Bouchardnumber 38 last year here in Evian with one card above par (74) against two of 68 and 71. She somehow brilliantly erased her horrible first try in 2019 with a very heavy 87 on day one followed by a very tough 78…after Two consecutive pieces of lost cuts inUS Open Then in the PGA Championship a few weeks ago, she made a full recovery last weekend in Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational By finishing sixth in this tournament she played in doubles.

for Perrin Delacourt And the Agathe LaysinAbove all, the goal will be to override the cuts, something they failed to do successively in 2017 and 2021 and in 2015 and 2017.
