 NOTES:
      One shot behind third-round leader Karrie Webb when the final round
 began, Annika Sorenstam fired a four-under 68 to force a playoff with Webb
 and then eagled the first playoff hole to defeat Webb and become the third
 straight Swede to win this event. Webb, who led after each of the first three
 days, shot a final round of 69. Both players birdied the final hole to meet
 in a playoff. On the first extra hole, both players hit good drives down the
 18th hole. Webb's second landed in the greenside bunker while Sorenstam's
 sailed towards the flag, just six feet away for her winning eagle. Sorenstam
 joined Helen Alfredsson (1994, 98 winner) and Catrin Nilsmark (1999 winner)
 as previous consecutive winners of this tournament. The purse for this event
 was increased by $300,000 from last year to $2,100,000, the second largest
 on the LPGA Tour behind the U.S. Women's Open ($2,900,000). This event is co-
 sanctioned by the LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour (The Evian Tour).
 This event features a field of 78 players with no cut being made. The
 tournament starts on Wednesday and concludes Saturday. Although this is the
 eighth Evian Masters, the tournament is in its second year on the LPGA
 circuit. Laura Davies, who tied for 24th last year, is a two-time winner of
 this event and has finished second once. Next week the LPGA Tour moves back
 to the United States for the third major, the McDonald's LPGA Championship
 in Delaware. Juli Inkster, the two-time defending champion will be on hand at
 DuPont Country Club. Sorenstam captured the first major, the Nabisco
 Championship while Webb was the winner two weeks ago at the U.S. Women's
 Open.
