Séamus Power (SHAY-muss) Genius !
When Séamus arrived to his very first start on the PGA Tour, the Safeway Open in Napa Valley, California. His first ever sponsored car was waiting for him. No more queuing at the rental car counter…
On his first ever practice round he then went an holed out on hole #11 with a well-judged 8 iron from 181 yards out.
What a baller….
After just a few tournaments, Séamus is lying 18th in Driving Distance on the PGA Tour averaging 306.5 yards off the tee and has a scoring average of 71.4. His best finish so far this season was just inside the Top 30 at the recent 2017 Sanderson Farms Championship.
You can see all his stats and news stories and profile updates on the PGA Tour Website
We really wanted to give credit where credit is due. He’s a great guy, hard grafter not to mention an exceptionally tidy golfer. Follow him online and show Séamus your support.
