Denver CC's Braga repeats as Colorado PGA Women's Champion

As Herman's Hermits famously sang more than 50 years ago, "Second verse, same as the first."

The second playing of the Colorado PGA Women's Championship looked a lot like the first, at least regarding the top of the leaderboard.

Like in 2016, Alexandra Braga from Denver Country Club won the championship. Like last year, she led after each round. And just as in 2016, she prevailed by three strokes.

Despite an 8-over-par round of 79 at The Club at Ravenna in Littleton in Wednesday's final round, Braga earned the trophy again. After five birdies in Tuesday's round of 69, the 33-year-old managed one on day 2. But that didn't keep her from going wire-to-wire in the event for the second consecutive year.

Stefanie Ferguson of CommonGround Golf Course, a former CWGA Match Play champion who finished third last year, placed second this time round, with a 76 on Wednesday leaving her at 151 overall.

Tara Morris of the Country Club at Castle Pines ended up third out of the 11-player field at 156 following a second-round 75.

The tournament was open to female players who are either PGA or LPGA members or apprentices based within the Colorado PGA's boundaries.
