Ashleigh Simon on the Evian Masters presented by Societe Generale

Describe your feelings returning to Evian.

I'm extremely excited to be returning to Evian, I really like the golf course 

Why is the Evian Masters special?

I think the setting makes The Evian Masters a special event because it's  just so beautiful as well as how well the players get treated during the week, and the activities and functions the sponsors put on for us.

How important is the Evian Masters to the European Tour players?

It's huge for the Ladies European Tour players who get to participate in the event. Firstly we need to have won a tournament to play in the event, as well as we get to compete against the best players in the world and play for a good purse. 

How does the event rate on the overall LET schedule?

I would say it's the best even to play in the whole year.

Who of your friends, family and team are you bringing to Evian?

It will just be myself and caddy/boyfriend David.

What are you most looking forward to about the event?

I know it sounds cliché but just being there for the week and competing

How will you be preparing?

I have been home in South Africa for three weeks preparing and working with my coach and biokanetisit.      

What are you working on in particular?

Nothing particular just working on sharpening up all parts of my game.

How do you assess your season so far?

I feel I had a steady start to the season then the win was great. After that was very inconsistent but played well in my last tournament so feeling much better about the rest of season ahead.

What are your hopes and expectations for the tournament?

Obviously you go into every event trying to win it so that would be the ultimate goal but to just play relaxed and free golf.
