by Golf Australia
Launceston Golf Club’s Shayne Walker and Jacquelin Morgan from New South Wales have won Tasmanian Senior Amateur championships at Mowbray today. For Walker, from Launceston Golf Club, it signalled back-to-back victories. The 56-year-old defeated Brad Dowling of Queensland on the second hole of a sudden-death play-off with a par to take out this year’s title. The pair finished the 54-hole tournament on two-over-par 215 after Walker carded rounds of 69, 72 and 74, and Dowling recording 72, 75 and 68. Queensland’s Ian Frost placed third on the final leader board with four-over-par rounds of 72, 71 and 74. Local member Terence Clark and Queensland’s Stephen Deane rounded out the top five with six-over and eight-over-par respectively. Morgan led the women's championship from start to finish. She won comfortably with 10-over-par rounds of 73, 78 and 75, 12 strokes in front of her nearest rivals, Tammy Hall of Prospect Vale and Helen Pascoe of Victoria, tied for second on 22-over-par. Prospect Vale’s Lindsay French and Deidre Panton placed fourth and fifth on the final tally.
