Preparation. Precision. Performance.

 

At Amundi US, we admire the emphasis on preparation and dedication to performance shown by competitors in the precision sport of women's golf. Amundi's title sponsorship of the annual Amundi Evian Championship and the Women Talent and Young Talent programs bring this inspiration to life. 

    

Amundi US is sponsoring three emerging standouts in women’s golf as they launch their careers in the US. The sponsorship is part of Amundi’s Women Talent Program, which provides financial assistance to talented young women golfers.

   

   

Through their hard work and commitment to their goals, these players are an inspiration to all of us:
