The Evian Resort Golf Club sits among the foothills of the French Alps overlooking picturesque Lake Geneva. The city is best known, however, as host of the annual Evian Championship — one of five majors on the Ladies Professional Golf Association’s (LPGA) tournament circuit.

But there was a constant blemish on their otherwise perfect season—their one loss on the year, a five set defeat to Brigham Young University. The Cardinal ended the regular season 28-1, nearly undefeated.
