Seamus Power joins a whole host of hungry professionals looking to earn their PGA Tour stripes for next term when he tees up at the first of three events at this year’s Korn Tour finals. 

After falling shy of the top-125 on the FedEx Cup standings who retained their cards for next season, Power decided to forego what would have been limited 2019/20 starts for his 126th to 150th money-list category, to instead tee-up in the three-event ‘Finals’ on the secondary Korn Ferry Tour (Previously the Web.com Tour). 

The Olympian did just that to great success at the end of 2017 to secure his 2017/18 full Tour card and after recharging the batteries during a much-needed week off, the West Waterford professional is in Columbus, Ohio for yet another redemption mission that he’ll be confident of pulling off. 

If Power’s combined earnings over the three weeks are inside the leading 25 for that same period, then he will regain full 2019/20 PGA Tour status. 

A week later he will be in Boise, Idaho while the last event will be the Korn Tour Championship starting on August 30th in Newberg, Indiana. 

“I’ve got one week to hit the reset button for the Korn Tour finals and hopefully get back out here on the Main Tour for the first event mid-September at The Greenbrier,” Power said last week.

“There was some good stuff to build on going into the Korn Ferry playoffs so I just have to go there and play well. 

With the likes of Viktor Hovland, Kevin Chappell and Boo Weekley in the field, it will be no easy task, but if Power can produce some of his best form of this season, it should be enough to prolong his American Dream.

Power gets his Korn Ferry Tour finals bid underway this afternoon at 13.57.
