Gabby Then on a Great Run in 2021

What kind of year is Gabby Then having in 2021? A pretty good one: She's won three pro tournaments.

It started back in March when Then won on the Cactus Tour in a playoff. She added a second Cactus Tour win in May, claiming another event by 10 strokes after finishing at 8-under 208.

A couple weeks earlier in May, this time playing on the Women's All Pro Tour (WAPT), Then posted a third-place finish in the Central Arkansas Open.

Then she added a third win overall for the year in the WAPT's Kathy Whitworth Paris Championship, played June 15-18 in Paris, Texas. In that one, Then shot rounds of 64-63 in the final two rounds to finish at 15-under 261 and win by two strokes. She had 19 birdies for the tournament, and went bogey-free over those final two rounds.

Following that WAPT win, Then stood second on the WAPT money list and third on the Cactus Tour money list. Those two circuits are mini-tours that many Symetra Tour and even some LPGA Tour golfers occasionally play to stay sharp. Many of the golfers on those circuits are still in the amateur ranks or just recently turned pro; others are golfers who've been working as club pros and are testing the waters of tournament life. No matter the specific background of the golfer, the mini-tours are a way for her to move up the tour ladder toward the ultimate goal of making the LPGA.

Gabriella "Gabby" Then played college golf at Southern Cal. At the end of her four years (2014-17) at the school, Then held the USC record for most rounds played (145). She was named All-American in 2015 and graduated with a degree in communications.
