Lydia Ko will be grouped among the last three winners of the Evian Championship when she begins defence of her title in France tomorrow night.

The world number one is defending a major championship for the first time.

Ko plays alongside Norway's Suzann Pettersen and Korea's Hyo Joo Kim for the first two rounds.

Ko won the Evian Championship with a brilliant final-round 63 a year ago, becoming the youngest winner of a major.
