Evian Championship Winners: The Full List Plus Playoffs

In Gee Chun is on the list of Evian Championship winners

The Evian Championship is one of the five majors of women's professional golf. It is played annually in France at the Evian Resort Golf Club, and its history dates to 1994.

But while the tournament has been played since 1994, it has been an official LPGA Tour event only since 2000, and has counted as a major championship only since 2013.

Multiple Winners of the Evian Championship

No golfer in the tournament's major championship era has won more than once. But several golfers, over the tournament's full history, have recorded multiple wins:
  • 3 wins: Helen Alfredsson (1994, 1998, 2008)
  • 2 wins: Laura Davies (1995, 1996)
  • 2 wins: Annika Sorenstam (2000, 2002)
  • 2 wins: Ai Miyazato (2009, 2011)
