History: This event became an official LPGA Tour event in 2000. It serves as the season's fifth major championship.
Anna Nordqvist mounted a Sunday charge with a five-under par, 66 to come from five-strokes back of Moriya Jutanugarn, the 36-hole leader, to force a playoff with Brittany Altomare. Tied at nine-under par, the pair returned to the par four, 18th where Nordqvist defeated Altomare with a bogey in the pouring rain and hail to win the Evian Championship. The 2017 Evian Championship was reduced to 54-holes due to inclement weather.
