'Ice cream' and high stakes for Jutanugarn, Park at Evian Championship

Hall has posted three worldwide top-10s in 2018

Jutanugarn's best finish was ninth in the Evian in 2016 - but her older sister, Moriya, came close to winning her first major past year when she finished third.

Now heading the list is US Women's Open champion Ariya Jutanugarn, followed by Park Sung-hyun and then Hall is in third place.

Park emerged as the victor of the Women's PGA Championships, one year on from her maiden success at the US Women's Open. Picking up three wins, one more than her total in 2017, was Park's main goal this season.

Park is one of the most decorated golfers of all time. This is just my second year, but I already love this event and want to do well.

Another win for Park would also see her jump up the money list, while increasing her chances of winning player of the year, raising the possibility of successive wins for the 24-year old.

In 2016, Park finished runner-up in her Evian debut and backed that up with an opening round 63 the following year.

Despite Park's successful career, she has one last major victory that is yet to be added to her impressive resume - the Evian Championship.

The Evian Championship was designated the fifth women's Major in 2013, a decision some felt diluted the entire Major product. It is given to the player who performs best in the five majors, and must include a win.

GM said that about 210,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold new in the US , while the others were delivered to Canada. The automaker says dealers have been provided with updated software packages to deal with the problem .

Last July, Park said, "the Evian Championship is like the last homework for me".

But winning the French tournament has proven a challenge.

"It's very cool coming here as a major victor", she admitted. For the last two years, she has been unable to compete due to injuries.

Rose, who has won a US Open and an Olympic gold medal, reached the top of the rankings for the first time at the age of 38, having turned professional 20 years ago. Most recently, Park finished tied for 30th at the Portland Classic on September 2.

"I feel I have improved a lot of things in my game".

This season, Park has won two tournaments - the Bank of Hope Founders Cup on the LPGA Tour and Doosan Match Play Championship on the KLPGA Tour - but she has been struggling with inconsistent shots.

The pair have been battling it out for the No. 1 spot in the world rankings and they are also one and two in the race for the Annika Major Award, which is given to the leading player in the season's majors. "I was so jealous when Ryu So-yeon won a year ago".
