With the Solheim Cup only one week away (Golfhacker is pretty excited about it) we turn our attention to the final Women's Major of the year. Played at the Evian Resort Golf Club, it is the only Major in the Women's game that is played at the same course every year.
With this in mind you can look back at previous results in order to get an idea of where players average.
Suzann Petterson is looking very strong given her odds. 22/1 is pretty high for a former Champion in 2013 and a 6th place finish in the tournament last year. Given that she will also be at the Solheim Cup next week she will be looking for a strong performance here.
Karrie Webb's odds also look pretty high at 66/1. In fact she looks like a long shot but don't let that put you off. A former winner of this event and a 2nd place finish last year. Webb is a winner when you least expect it. A strong each way candidate.
Ha-Na Jang at 33/1 has had 6 top 10 and 3 top 3 finishes this year from her 19 events so far this year. In her rookie season last year she finished T-3 at the Evian last year. She has regained form of late with a 2nd place a t the Cambia Portland classic in August.
9 top 10 finishes this year, 1 victory and a major winner in her own right it is hard to ignore Lexi Thompson. She came 3rd at the Evian in 2013 and a Top 10 finish in 2014. She is secure on this course and like Petterson will be keen to impress with the Solheim Cup a short trip over the boarder to Germany in a week's time.
Ryu is the World Number 4. At 16/1 she provides better odds than Inbee Park and Lydia Ko. T-3 at the Ricoh Women's Open and more recently a T-3 at the Canadian Open she is a consistent performer on the LPGA.
Her form may be shaky and needed a Captain's Pick to secure her Solheim Cup place but it is hard to forget about Paula Creamer. At 100/1 She is an outsider but has a good record at the Evian. T-7 at last year's tournament and a winner before the Evian became a major in 2005. She will be looking to reward Juli Inkster's faith in her and the Evian would be a great place to start.
Please remember to gamble responsibly.
Lexi Thompson comes 2nd securing 14.5 pts. Could have been so much better had it not been for the double bogey on the 14th that wreaked her momentum. Oh well. But at least I'm back in terms of getting someone in the top 5 after a two week dry spell.
