FATHER and son, James and Joel Krishna, proved to be the surprise winners at the Lautoka Golf Club last week.

Both won the overall titles in their senior and junior categories.

Central College student Joel is aiming to follow his father's footsteps, who is a veteran golfer having won the 2011 Lautoka Open and the Fiji Amateur Foursomes Championship on several occasions.

The 13-year-old set the early pace in the Sigatoka Motor Spares Junior Championship and went on to bag the overall gross title with a score of 48.

Fellow Central College student Shamal Ram won the overall nett with a score of 38.

Shamal Narayan took out the first nett with 39.

Divesh Chandra was second with 40 nett, Jason Toon was third on 41 nett, while Talica Tuivono finished fourth with 42 nett.

Meanwhile, James won the overall gross title in the Islands Electric-sponsored event, scoring 40.

Subash Chand continued his fine form at the Golf Links Course winning the overall nett title for the second consecutive week, scoring 32 nett.

Gaffar Ali easily won the A Grade nett with a score of 36. Abdul Jalal won the B Grade nett with a score of 38, while Lawrence Benjamin claimed the C Grade title with 42 nett.

Lautoka Chamber of Commerce administrator Mohammed Salim pipped Fiji National University vice chancellor Doctor Ganesh Chand on a countback to win the beginners category.
