Sunrise Beach, Mo. (June 28, 2021) — Curtis Brokenbrow of St. Louis won the 114th Missouri Amateur Championship at The Club at Porto Cima this past weekend in Sunrise Beach, Missouri. Brokenbrow went 34 holes with opponent Chad Niezing, before closing the match out 3 & 2. Brokenbrow joins an illustrious list of past champions including former PGA TOUR Champion Tom Watson, former U.S. Open Champion Payne Stewart and new Missouri Golf Association President Wayne Fredrick.
Brokenbrow started the 36-hole match slowly, going 3 down to Niezing on the first 18 holes. It wasn’t until the 23rd hole of the day that Brokenbrow took the lead and did not concede it for the remainder of the match.

In the semifinal, Brokenbrow went 1 up with a birdie on the first hole, and, going as high as 3 up, he did not concede the lead the remainder of the afternoon.
