UNDER the tutelage of her infamous father Bruce, Jorja Morale has gone ahead in leaps and bounds after taking up the game of golf.

It was not that long ago that Morale started her golf journey with the biggest female handicap allowed and now she is about to break into a handicap of 20.

In the ladies stableford competition at the Blue Lake Golf Club last Saturday, Morale showcased her improvement with a par on the first hole for an opening four points.

While the next five holes were a struggle, she scored on every hole in the stableford competition.

Good things followed with another two pars on the seventh and ninth holes to close out the opening nine with 21 points.

Morale added another couple of pars on the back nine for another 21 points to guarantee the win.

Ronda Edwards slipped up on the second hole where she failed to score but managed to walk away with two birdies on the day.

Despite the wipe-out, Edwards still managed 19 points to set herself up for a tilt at the main prize and a four-point birdie on the 11th hole certainly had her celebrating.

Edwards finished the 14th hole with just a single point, but thanks to her experience she made a comeback with two three-point pars to finish with 40 points.

Even with a moderate score it was not enough to catch the impressive Morale, but Edwards still managed to take out second place.

The ever consistent Helen Stratford is starting to find her feet once again after a forced absence from the game, taking out third place with 37 points.

Naturally, Morale picked up the novelty prize for the best front nine.
