By Gary Baines – 8/10/2021

Alexandra Braga from Denver Country Club won her third Colorado PGA Women’s Championship — but her first since 2017 — on Tuesday at Thorncreek Golf Course in Thornton.

Braga thus becomes the first three-time champion at the event, which debuted in 2016.

Braga went 66-69 for a 9-under-par 135 total, which gave her a four-stroke victory. Over the two rounds, she carded 12 birdies and three bogeys.

Tara Morris of the Country Club at Castle Pines, tournament winner in 2018 and ’20, came in second at 139 after a final-round 69. Sherry Andonian-Smith of Valley Country Club, who won in 2019, was third at 140 after closing with a 71.

The Colorado PGA Women’s Championship was open to all female PGA & LPGA members and associates in good standing who reside or work within the Colorado PGA Section boundaries. Eleven golfers competed this week.
