2002 Evian Tour Schedule Released
The schedule includes 16 events to be played in 13 countries, representing more than one-third of the 31 player nationalities that make up the LET.
Conspicuously absent from the lineup - and considered a tremendous blow for the recognition and support of womans golf - is England. That country lost the ever-popular Ladies British Masters ' formerly played at Mottram Hall Golf Club - upon the withdrawal of the sponsorship
Although the first event kicks off Feb 21-24 in Australia - where Karrie Webb has a chance to win her fifth straight ANZ title ' many of the players' minds may already be focused on the Compaq Open at Vasatorp GC in Sweden.
The Evian Ladies Tour has not announced which tournament will be the last event to earn points for the 2002 Solheim Cup but at this point it looks as if the WPGA Championship of Europe at Royal Porthcawl may have the honors. One thing is certain - double points are on the line throughout the spring and summer. With a coveted seven automatic spots and five wild card captains picks still up for grabs, great golf, leading up to this years Solheim Cup, is quite promising.
The Solheim Cup, scheduled at Interlachen GC in September, is shaping up to be an exciting event for Captain Dale Reid. Reid and her European Team will do their best to retain the trophy and honors for the first time on foreign grounds in the event's 13-year history.
The Tours season wraps up with the conclusion of the Biarritz Ladies Classic in France Oct 3-5. This will mark the third and final event in France on the 2002 schedule. The Evian Masters June 12-15 is the most prominent of the three. As a joint sanctioned event, the Evian Masters features a purse of $2,100,000 (2,371,407 euro), which is the largest purse of the season.
