Waterford’s Seamus Power continued his good form on the PGA Tour at the weekend as he finished in a tie for 26th at the Barracuda Championship at Montreux Golf & Country Club in Reno, Nevada.
This was a modified stableford event in which you received five points for an eagle, two points for a birdie, no points for par, minus one point for bogey and minus two points for double bogey. After day one he was tied 36th place after racking up seven points. On Friday he moved to tied 18th after adding another nine points which saw him on a total of 16 points.
Saturday saw him on the move again up to tied 14th after adding a further 10 points by shooting six birdies and two bogeys. This put him on 26 points. On Sunday Seamus had two bogeys, a birdie and an eagle on the 18th which saw him finish with five points for his round. He finished in 26th place overall for the event. He is now in 123rd place on the FedEx Cup rankings, with the top 125 getting their cards for the next year.
Seamus will be teeing up in his final event, The Wyndham Championship, from August 17th-20th. At this stage he must be feeling very confident of retaining his PGA Tour card for next year. Well done Seamus on another great weekend of golf.
