Darryl Hearsch wraps up all the latest senior amateur golfing action from around the country, including great wins by Tammy Hall and Robbie Berne at the Tasmanian Senior Masters, and "Mr 58"  Shane Floyd goes ultra low in Sydney.

Wayne DeFrancesco has an impressive record as both  a golf player and teacher so when the 62 year old talks about the senior golf swing you’ve got to suspect he knows what he is talking about.
