Taylor golfer to be honoured for 25 years at B.C. Senior Games

This year, not only will the B.C. Senior Games will be celebrating a quarter century of competition, but so will some of its competitiors. Special recognition will be given to athletes who have attended all 25 games since the competition's inaugural year.

One of those athletes to receive such recognition is Taylor’s very own Freda Murphy, who will take to the course in the Game’s golf event.

This will be Murphy’s 25 straight competition, and the achievement will be honoured with an award presentation taking place at the opening ceremonies.

Murphy, 80, says that despite her age, she still has a strong desire to win.

"I am one of those people that likes to win; I play to win and I am very competitive," she says. "My friends tell me I am a pain because I’m too competitive. They seem to think that’s how to play the game, but I play to win."

Winning is something the Taylor resident is used to, as she has medalled in 21 out of the 25 Games she has competed in.

It also won’t be the first time Murphy will be playing the Burnaby Mountain Golf Course, as she steps into the Games having played the course a number of times throughout her gold career.

She says that although she's no longer able to get as much distance out of her clubs as she used to, her confidence in her short game will help her achieve her goal of winning another medal.

Murphy will leave for the Games Tuesday, with competition running Thursday and Friday.

Golfers will play 18 holes per day, with their final scores determining who medals in the event.

The 25 annual B.C. Senior Games will be taking place in Burnaby this year, being held from August 21-25.

Fort St. John will make its mark on the games, as 53 Energetic City athletes will be competing in 11 different events.
