Thanks to Celine Boutier, France can now celebrate winning the Evian Championship. Boutier is a French citizen and is currently the third French woman to win an LPGA major title. Boutier was only preceded by Patricia Meunier-Lebouc in 2004 and Catherine Lacoste in the year 1967.
After winning the prestigious title, Boutier opened up to the press about her first major win, her role model, and the future of French golf. When asked about her thought and feeling on becoming the “biggest role-model” for young golfers in the country. Boutier said, “I mean, it’s really not things I think about on my daily life. I definitely feel like it’s hard to really realize that I have such — that I would have any kind of impact in French golf or in France at all”.
She further added, “I’m just so grateful to be able to have this gift of golf, I guess, and just to be able to hopefully inspire more French players to turn pro and try to play on the same stage.”
The major tournament took place in the quaint town of Evian-les-Bains, nestled at the bottom of the Alps and overlooking the beautiful Lake Geneva. But on Sunday, this quaint town transformed itself into a historical battleground for LPGA competitors. And after the winning of France’s own Celine Boutier, this town earned even more fame amongst French people.
This might be the first major win for Celine Boutier, but she is not at all a newbie to the game. Earlier on, she made quite a name for herself after winning the Drive On Championship in March. And after this recent win, Celine cemented her position in the French Golfing community. Apart from widespread recognition in the golfing community, Celine also took home a whopping $1,000,000 from the purse of $6.5 million.Keep following our page for more such content.
