She had hit four birdies in the final round with six bogeys. She started the tournament day well enough with 5 birdies and parred the rest of the holes.
Ashok tied along with two other players Ayaka Furue from Japan and Eun-Hee Ji from South Korea.
This marks the third time this season that Ashok has found herself within five strokes of the lead heading into the final round. She previously achieved this feat at the JM Eagle LA Championship presented by Plastpro, where she finished in a commendable tie for second after a playoff, and at the Cognizant Founders Cup, where she secured a solid tie for fifth place.
Ashok, a four-time Ladies European Tour winner, acknowledged the strength of her short game but focused on improving her long game during the offseason in preparation for her seventh season on the LPGA Tour.
Aditi Ashok has been enjoying a successful season on both sides of the Atlantic, even reaching the top 50 of the world rankings for a brief period. In the second round of the Mizuho Americas Open, Ashok recorded two birdies and two bogeys. Unfortunately, her second bogey came on the 17th hole after play resumed following a suspension due to hazardous weather conditions at the Liberty National course.
Minjee Lee, the highly-ranked Australian golfer, showcased a remarkable performance in the second round. She recorded eight birdies in the first 12 holes, completing a flawless round without any bogeys. Lee's outstanding performance allowed her to rectify her previous round's score of 73 and leap from 55th position to claim the top spot. With eight victories on the LPGA Tour under her belt, Lee has established herself as a formidable force in women's golf.
American golfer Rose Zhang took the trophy home by hitting 9-under 279 and took home a prize money of $412,500.00.
