The JLPGA Daikin Orchid Ladies Golf Tournament, the opening event of the JLPGA Tour 2023 season, was held at Ryukyu Golf Club (6,560 yards/par 72) in Nanjo city, Okinawa.
Shin Jie, who started the final day in the lead, won the tournament with a total of 10 under par. Momoko Ueda and Mone Inami tied for second place at 7 under par, three strokes behind.
She made bogey from the 1st hole and then was unable to make birdie for a while after that. She also failed to make par for a 1.5 meter par on the 6th hole, making a bogey and losing the lead. However, on the next hole, the par-5 7th hole, she shot her third stroke from 80 yards to 2 meters behind the pin. It was a brilliant bounce back. On the 9th hole, the last hole of the front nine, she also made a 1-meter birdie putt from in front of the pin, and headed into the back nine in the lead. She closed the back nine with a birdie on the final 18th hole.
