Seamus Power made a timely return to form on the PGA Tour to saunter through to the weekend at the Bermuda Championship.
The West Waterford professional fired a four-under par 67 to bolt 29 places up the leaderboard into a tie for 27th at five-under par.
Power is hoping to get his PGA Tour prospects back on track having forfeited his card after falling short of the top-125 on the FedEx Cup standings last season.
Playing off conditional status this term, Power has to take advantage of every start he can get and three birdies on his outward half on Friday was a step in the right direction, turning his tournament fortunes around after a slow start.
His unlucky 13th hole of the day proved just that with Power posting a double-bogey that halted the momentum but he showed great resilience to get the two shots back with an eagle at his 16th hole before picking up another shot at the last to sign for superb 67.
At minus-five, Power finds himself six shots behind a three-way tie for the top with Americans Harry Higgs, Brendon Todd and Scottie Scheffler leading the way at 11-under par with 36-holes to play.
