The tee times for Friday and Saturday will be the same as those from Thursday and Friday, with the cut made after Saturday's round. Notes: This is the fifth major of the year. "Last year, In-gee played too well". Purse: $3.65 million (First prize: $547,500).

The Evian Resort Golf Club is not her favorite course, as the fairways have severe slopes and there are a lot of obstacles on the course. Only once in her last six major tournaments has she placed in the top-30.

"Early in the history of the tournament, we knew we needed to have a strong brand and a unique proposal", vice chairman Jacques Bungert told CNN. "We decided it would be our main color".

A re-start was good news for Ai Miyazato, the former No 1 from Japan playing her final event before retiring. If Park wins, she may also become the 2017 LPGA money leader and, depending on Ryu's playing this weekend, could move up to first in the Women's Rolex World Ranking.

On the opposite end, U.S. Women's Open victor Sung-Hyun Park was 6 over through five holes, having made a nine on the par-4 11, her second hole of the day.

Second-ranked Lexi Thompson won in Indianapolis for her second title this season.

At the Evian Championship past year, she finished at 17-under par, good enough to finish tied for second after Chun In-gee set the lowest major tournament score for men or women at 21-under par.

That South Korea's Sung Hyun Park could win both Rookie of the Year and Player of the Year speaks volumes about her promising future in the game. Always quick to smile, Miyazato includes "players, caddies, coaches, tournament staff, volunteers, spectators and L.P.G.A. staff" as those she will miss when she retires.

Ryu So-Yeon is the current world number one.Runner-up last year, the South Korean wants to add a first Evian Championship to her trophy cabinet, which already boasts this year's first major - the ANA Inspiration.
