Dad in his sights

Ju­nior Cham­pion Mark Du Rose was elated with his Na­tional Cham­pi­onship but what he re­ally likes is beat­ing his dad, Adam.

Mark set up his week­end by shoot­ing 87 on Sat­ur­day but said he felt it should have been more than 90. “It was pretty tricky with the wind on some of the tar­gets but over­all there wasn’t much that was af­fected by the wind; they were re­ally suited to it and were re­ally good,” he said. Sun­day’s mis­sion was sim­ple. “The main goal was to go out and shoot 50 straight and hope­fully beat Dad but that didn’t turn out; it went pretty good though, I shot two 23s,” he said.

“I could have eas­ily had him, I just didn’t quite have the mo­men­tum to get there but def­i­nitely in the next 12 months I will start beat­ing him ev­ery time. “At the mo­ment he gets me ev­ery se­cond shoot.” Mark said he now has the ex­pe­ri­ence to shoot for more ti­tles and ex­pects to keep im­prov­ing.
