Judith Kyrinis leads a busy life – she's a registered nurse in Pre-Admission at Toronto General Hospital and has a husband and three teenagers at home to keep up with.
But she's also found time to become a top flight golfer, recently capping her 2017 season by winning one of the most prestigious amateur tournaments in the world.
Judith, 53, claimed the 2017 U.S. Senior Women's Amateur Golf Championship in Portland, Ore., coming out on top of a field of 132 of the world's top-ranked players, including some who once played on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour.
Judith became just the third Canadian woman to win the title, defeating Toronto teacher Terrill Samuel in the first all-Canadian final in the 56-year history of the event for women aged 50 and older.
"To win this prestigious championship is my dream come true," says Judith. "I've worked very hard the last several years in all facets of my game and in the gym too.
"Hard work does pay off."
Being a nurse helped improve her golf game
Judith started playing golf at the age of 12, and started competing in her 20s. She has worked at Toronto General Hospital since 1986, first in the Medical Surgical Intensive Care Unit and now in Pre-Admission.
She says her work as a nurse has helped her improve her golf game.
"Being a nurse has helped me prioritize and use my time management skills to make the most of my time outside of work and get the hours in with practice, playing, and tournaments," she says.
"My co-workers have been so supportive and encouraging of my golfing exploits throughout the years and I know they are very proud of my achievements outside of work."
Judith was also the 2016 Canadian Mid Am and Senior Champion, and the Ontario Mid Am and Senior Champion in 2016 and 2017.
