Shin Ji-ae (35) made a hole-in-one and is aiming for a come-from-behind victory in the Salonpas Cup (total prize money of 120 million yen) of the World Ladies Championship.
In the third round of the Japan Women’s Professional Golf (JLPGA) Tour Salon Pars Cup held at the Ibaraki Golf Club (par 72) in Japan on the 6th, Shin Ji-ae tied a hole-in-one, 3 birdies and 3 bogeys, and she shot 2 under par 70.
Shin Ji-ae, who recorded an interim total of 220 with a 4-over par, was named tied for third place. She is four strokes behind the single leader Yuri Yoshida (Japan).
Hole-in-one was a big help. She made a birdie on the 5th hole (par 5), but Shin Ji-ae, who seemed to have stopped her flow by making consecutive bogeys on the 6th and 7th holes, made a hole-in-one like heaven on the 8th hole (par 3).
On the 8th hole, which was 180 yards (164 m) long, she attacked with a 7-iron. The pin was stuck in the front. The ball that landed on the fringe of the green rolled right into the hole.
Receiving loud applause and cheers from her gallery, Shin Ji-ae shared her joy with a high-five with her companions. The commentator also did not hide his surprise, saying, “The shot of conversion was inhaled into the cup.” Ji-ae Shin’s hole-in-one is the fourth in JLPGA Tour history, and it is the first in a year since the 2022 Hoken no Madoguchi Ladies.
After the hole-in-one, the game went smoothly. A birdie was added on the 11th hole (par 4) and a birdie was added on the 17th hole (par 5). The last 18th hole (par 4) is a bogey, but it is a position where you can aim for more than the top 5.바카라사이트
