Father-son duo Mat Etuale-Ausage and Joseph Etuale took Mooroopna Golf Club’s course by storm last Thursday.
Playing in the weekly stableford event, Mat and Joseph took home first and second prize respectively in the competition.
But it was not only their overall standings which impressed those tallying the scorecards.
At the tender age of 11, and competing in just his second competition round, Joseph compiled 44 stableford points off a handicap of 36.
To put that into perspective, with a par worth two points on the stableford scoring system, Joseph’s round would equate to a score of about eight under par off of scratch during a stroke play round.
Joseph could not claim overall honours with the outstanding performance, with his father (playing off of a handicap of six) accumulating 45 points.
The pair’s great round has reflected in their handicaps, with Joseph’s dropping to 28 and Mat’s moving to five.
