In the same year she qualified for the inaugural U.S. Senior Women's Open and tied for second at the Colorado PGA Professional Championship, Sherry Andonian-Smith scored a significant victory on Wednesday by winning the 36-hole Colorado PGA West Chapter Championship at Aspen Glen Club in Carbondale.
The victory was her second in three years at the West Chapter Championship, with her 2016 win also coming at Aspen Glen. This year, the showing in the 39-player event was worth $1,440.
Andonian-Smith (left), a 55-year-old from Valley Country Club, shot a 5-under-par 67 -- which tied for the lowest round of the event -- on Wednesday to rally for a one-stroke win. She posted a 5-under-par 139 total for two days, one better than runner-up Kirk Trowbridge of the MetaGolf Learning Center, who shot two straight 70s.
It was the second victory in this Colorado PGA season for Andonian-Smith, who teamed up with Geoff Keffer to share the title in the Western Chapter Pro-Pro Championship in late May.
