For centuries tourists have been travelling to the French spa town of Évian-les-Bains, eager for the spa, Lake Geneva and the stunning Alpine backdrop to soothe their aching minds and bodies. This week the sport of golf has checked in, desperate to rid itself of all kinds of migraines, pains in the neck and associated vexations. Can today’s action provide a balm for the sport’s wounded soul?!

It’s the final round of the Evian Championship, the penultimate women’s major championship of the 2022 season, and if it’s anything like last year we’re in for an absolute treat. Australia’s Minjee started that fourth lap at the Evian Resort seven shots adrift of the leader Jeongeun Lee6 and posted a superb bogey-free 64 that set an imposing clubhouse target.

Meanwhile, Lee6 had endured a front nine collapse and, for much of the back nine, it seemed as if Yealimi Noh would take advantage. Instead, the resilient Lee6 closed with a hat trick of birdies to tie Lee’s total. Ultimately, however, that brilliance only extended her agony because Lee made yet another birdie to win on the first extra hole.

What of this week? Japan’s Ayaka Furue set the pace in the first round with a 63 since when the Canadian Brooke Henderson has taken control. Two 64s sent her three clear at halfway and, after yesterday’s 68, she remains two in front with 18 holes to play on 17-under 196. Korea’s So Yeon Ryu is her nearest rival, two back, with LPGA rookie Sophia Schubert another two strokes adrift alone in third.

Here are the scores on the board:

-17: Brooke Henderson

-15: So Yeon Ryu

-13: Sophia Schubert

-12: Carlota Ciganda, Sei Young Kim

-11: Jin Young Ko, Charley Hull, Atthaya Thitikul, Hyo Joo Kim, Nelly Korda
