LIBERTY - Derek Murphy loves golf. And he likes playing it competitively even more, so the Casey County senior is heading to Lindsey Wilson College to continue his golf career next year.
"I felt if I just went on to school and not play (for the school) I wouldn't be happy," he said. "I'd rather play competitively than go out and play for the fun."
Murphy said he began hearing from the school toward the end of his senior season. So he visited last month and was invited to join the team then by coach Chris Starks.
"It just suits me right I believe," he said. "I've played their course (in Columbia) a few times and liked it. And I liked the school and everything. They've got a good golf team. Plus, it's close to home, so that helps out a lot."
