The Amundi Evian Championship
World of Rolex
At The Amundi Evian Championship, the finest talents from across the globe test their mettle while helping to enrich the game’s most revered traditions.
This Major is staged on the Champions Course at the Evian Resort Golf Club, one of the sport’s most challenging and visually stunning venues. The tournament’s honour roll of past champions includes Rolex Testimonees Annika Sörenstam (2000, 2002), her fellow Swede Anna Nordqvist (2017) and New Zealand’s Lydia Ko (2015).
Rolex and Golf
Lydia Ko occupies a special place in golf history. In February 2015, the then 17-year-old Korean-born New Zealander became the youngest World No. 1 – in men’s or women’s golf.
Anna Nordqvist has been one of golf’s most consistent performers for more than a decade. In 2017, she won The Amundi Evian Championship after prevailing in a play-off contested in driving rain and wind.
Brooke Henderson is a model of high performance and consistency. Since turning professional ahead of the 2015 season, she has won at least one title in all but one year.
The Datejust 31
The Rolex Datejust is the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial. The precision, performance and timeless elegance of the Datejust 31 recall the beautiful yet challenging Champions Course at the Evian Resort Golf Club, where The Amundi Evian Championship is held.
