Although she was an invited player, she tied for the lead in the second round and led alone with a 9 under par 207 after the third round, raising expectations for the championship.

In the first extension from the 18th hole, all three players failed to get the ball on the green, so they continued their third shot from the surrounding rough, and Grace Kim, who sent the third shot closest, became the main character of the victory with the only birdie. Ryu Wi recorded a par, and Seong Yu-jin recorded a bogey as his third shot went over the green and landed in the rough on the other side.
