Ji-ae Shin fell five strokes short of an upset victory in the final round of the ISPS Handa Australian Women’s Open.South Korean Ji-Ae Shin made four birdies in the fourth round of the tournament at the par-72 Australian Golf Club in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday, but had seven bogeys and a double bogey for a 5-over-par 77.Winner Ashley Buhai (SOUTH AFR), who shot a 9-under 280, also dropped three strokes, but Shin had to settle for third place (4-under 285), five shots behind Buhai.Shin, who was upset by Buhai in the final round of this event last year, was hoping for a final-round upset this year as she finished second, three strokes behind Buhai, but struggled with her shot.However, her third-place finish at the event, which is not on the U.S. Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour but features a number of LPGA Tour players and carries a small number of world ranking points, gives her an asset that she can use to improve her world ranking.In order to qualify for next year’s Olympic Games in Paris, Shin will need to maintain or improve her current world ranking of No. 15 by next June.

Buhui had a lackluster day, making no birdies and three bogeys, but was able to capitalize on the gains she made the day before to win for the second straight year. Australian compatriot Lee Min-ji fired a 3-under 69 to finish one stroke back in second place (8-under 281).Four strokes back, Ji-Eun Shin tied for third with Ji-Ae Shin.Lee’s younger brother, Lee Min-woo, lost one stroke in the final round of the DP World Tour ISPS Handa Australian Open on the same course to finish third (12-under 273).It was his second straight win at an Australian golf major after winning the Australian PGA Championship five days earlier.The title went to Joaquin Niemann (CHILE), who defeated Rikuya Hoshino (JPN) in a playoff.Niman finished the fourth round tied for first (14-under 271) with Hoshino, who shot a 5-under 66 in the fourth round to drop one stroke, and eagled the 18th hole (par-5) in the second extended playoff to overtake Hoshino.Niemann, who plays for 카지노사이트 LIV Golf, also entered the tournament needing world ranking points to qualify for a major.
