Evian Ladies' Major moving to late July dates from 2019

After years of being plagued by bad weather, the Evian Championship is changing dates in 2019.
Next year’s edition will be contested in mid-summer, July 25-28, at Evian Resort Golf Club in Evian-les-Bains, France.
Since – and even before – being announced as the LPGA’s fifth major in 2013, the Evian has experienced multiple problems with inclement weather during its current September date.
Last year’s event was reduced to 54 holes when Thursday play was scrapped because of a strong storm. A handful of players had started their first rounds, but all scores were wiped clean, creating controversy.
It was the second time that the event had been relegated to 54 holes. In its 2013 major debut, giant portions of the course were marked as ground under repair because of a long, wet summer. More rain that week led to the reduction.
