Jackie Little is one of British Columbia’s most accomplished amateur golfers, but she hasn’t yet quite convinced her young granddaughter of her playing prowess.
Last June, Little placed second at the B.C. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship at Kelowna Golf & Country Club. Her five-year-old granddaughter Myelle was there to watch Little complete her round. As she walked off the 18th green, Myelle asked her grandmother if she had won.
“She said, ‘Granny, did you win,’” Little recalls with a chuckle. “And I said, ‘no, Granny didn’t win today, Granny didn’t putt very well.’ Ever since then, any time we ask her about my golf she goes, ‘oh Granny, it’s too bad you can’t putt.’
“So I'm going to have to win another championship to prove to her that I can putt.”
