 Jack Johnson and Justin Rose are just a few golfers 5-year-old Isaac Rumler looks up to. He says his dad taught him how to golf at two and he's been practicing ever since.

"I practice about three times a week," said Isaac Rumler.  

His father, Matt Rumler, believes the frequent practicing is something that's helped him get better at golfing quicker.

"He took to the game so well that I've just tried to nurture it as much as I could," said Matt Rumler. "I've tried to let him find his own way to enjoy it and hopefully that pays off for him.

"My brother-in- law mentioned the Little People's tournament and we thought it would be a good opportunity for us to spend time and try it out and see how it is," said Amber Rumler.  

Neither parent knew what to expect, but both admit they didn't think he'd win.

"So I thought he would be excited to see whether he won and all his hard work paid off. Maybe this would encourage him to really focus on something and want to become better," said Matt Rumler.  

" I didn't know what the other golfers would be like. We just made sure we told him to do your best and have a good time," said Amber Rumler. "It was very nerve-racking I think as a parent being out there. Just wanting him to do his best. My husband was his caddy. It was nerve-racking for him i'm sure too"

But all nerves settled once the judges announced that their son was in fact the winner.

"I was very proud for one. He behaved himself so well and so mature and he was a great role model for the other players that we played with," said Matt Rumler.  

"I think if he keeps it up, he can be successful with it," said Amber Rumler.
