The Evian Championship

Find out what's happened after day one at the final major of the year, The Evian Championship in France, and stay up to date with the latest scores as the action unfolds.

Spain's Carlota Ciganda and Maria Torres of Puerto Rico share the lead after the opening round at The Evian Championship, each carding 6-under-par 65.

The pair are just one stroke clear of Austin Ernst, from Texas, with So Yeon Ryu, Brooke Henderson and Nasa Hataoka a shot further back.

With her sights set on back-to-back majors, Georgia Hall shot a bogey-free 68 to sit in a large group on 3-under, including Inbee Park.

Hall was pleased to have achieved her objective of being bogey-free, with three birdies in her first eight holes.

“I had it in my head as well that I wanted to be bogey-free, and that’s quite a special thing I think around this golf course. I’ll take that as my first round. I’m quite happy with that.”

“This golf course is pretty tough, and the greens especially. It’s quite tough and some demanding tee shots as well. You have to be a good putter to play well around this golf course and score low,” Hall continued.

Just behind Hall at 2-under par is England's Bronte Law, and Charley Hull sits in 42nd spot after a round of 1-over.

In the race for the world number one spot, the current holder Sung Hyun Park shot a six-over-par 77 to sit in a share of 98th place and only 70 players will make the cut.

The world number two, Ariya Jutanugarn, who needs a top-seven finish to have a chance to regain her place at the summit, opened with a level par 71 to sit in 35th place alongside fellow challenger Lexi Thompson. Ryu, who is tied for fourth and Park, who is tied for seventh, could also return to world number one with a win.
