Her come from behind win marked her first career win on the LPGA. Shin had a bogey free final-round, 67, to finish two shots ahead of Amy Yang, Mi Jung Hur and Gerina Piller.
“I was chasing the leader all week so looking at the leaderboard didn’t get me nervous at all,” Shin said. “I practiced a lot of three footers the first two days because I kept hitting it too far past, and I know that I’ve made almost every single one of them so that really helped me with my confidence and I had a lot of them coming down the last six holes. So as soon as I made the first one, I went okay, I know I’ll make the second one and make the third one so it was good.”
