Shin Ji-ae (35) won 62 pro career victories in Australia and still showed the appearance of a competitive legend.
Shin Ji-ae shot a 1-under-par 71 with 5 birdies and 4 bogeys at the Australian Women’s Professional Golf (WPGA) Tour Victoria Open (total prize money of 420,000 Australian dollars) held at Thitins Beach Golf Links (par 72) in Victoria, Australia on the 메이저사이트12th. .
Shin Ji-ae, who posted a final total of 14 under par 275, took the win by five strokes away from her tie for second place group. In July 2021, she reached the top of the Japan Women’s Professional Golf (JLPGA) Tour 1 year and 7 months after the Daito Gentaku Ladies, and achieved 62 wins in her professional career.

Shin Ji-ae recorded her first birdie on the 2nd hole (par 5). She committed bogey on the 4th hole (par 4), but she managed to bounce back with a birdie on the 5th hole (par 5), and he added a birdie on the 7th hole (par 3). In the second half, she seemed to shake with consecutive bogeys on the 10th and 11th holes, but she also added birdies on the 13th (par 4) and 15th holes (par 4). Afterwards, she bogeyed on the 16th hole (par 4), but she did not have enough to win.
Cathy Porter (Australia) in her 20s, who was leading the round in the third round, was unable to overcome the wind in the final round and swayed with a 7-over par. She was an up-and-comer in 2013 when she won the Australian Women’s Open, but couldn’t cope with the pressure to stick with her stellar players. Porter expressed her admiration for her, saying that she rather learned from Jiae Shin’s skillful play.
Porter said, “Jiae Shin has amazing control over herself. I was there to learn. I learned so much today. I’m grateful for that experience. We all learned how Jiae Shin copes with tough situations. That was really impressive.” I was lucky to be able to see it up close.”
Ji-ae Shin knew that Porter was nervous during the competition. Recognizing the familiar emotions he had experienced in the past, he said, “I had the same feelings, but sometimes new players play more impressively. I was also blown away by Porter’s performance. I hope he learns something from the experience today.”
