Jackie Little won her fifth B.C. Senior Women’s Championship last Friday at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club.

Little, a former Vernonite now living in Port Alberni, carded a 4-over 76 with birdies on the ninth and 12th holes negating her early bogeys on No. 3 and No. 6.

While Victoria’s Alison Murdoch was coming back to the field, Little was playing a steady game that only ran into problems with a closing double bogey on 17 and bogey on 18.

“I never look at the leaderboard,” said Little. “I’m just trying to play as well as I can. I’m just happy Alison didn’t have seven birdies today (like Murdoch posted during Round 2). I’m very proud of defending the senior title.”

Murdoch, who shot 79, was two strokes back of Little.

Murdoch did walk away with the Super Senior title, finishing three strokes clear of Shaughnessy’s Holly Horwood, who finished at (+20) 236.

Shelly Stouffer of Fairwinds (Nanoose Bay) won the Mid-Master title.

In the zone competition, which concluded after 36 holes, the Zone 5 team of Murdoch and Penny Baziuk finished tied at (+28) 316 with the Zone 6 team of Little and Josee Deslauriers but the title went to the Zone 5 team because of a better back-nine scorecard.

Both Little and Murdoch have earned spots to represent British Columbia Golf at the Canadian Senior Women’s Championship at Sawmill Creek Golf Resort and Spa in Camlachie, ON from Aug. 26–28.
