Seamus Power endured a disastrous second round at the 3M Open as he missed the cut at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minnesota.

The West Waterford professional was at two-under par for the tournament through 11 holes on Friday and inside the mark before dropping six shots in his last seven holes to post a seven-over 78 for a plus-four tally.

It was a quadruple bogey at the 10th that put the nail in the coffin for Power; a reload off the tee compounded by more errors after the 33-year old also three-putted from 3-feet on the hole.


Power is expected to fall one place in the FedEx rankings to 180th and needs a late surge towards the top-125 in the FedEx Cup standings to proceed to this year’s play-offs, though time’s running out for the Olympian.

Meanwhile, Michael Thompson and Richy Werenski maintained their momentum at the top of the 3M Open board.

Tony Finau, fresh off a caddie change, put himself in prime position right behind the leaders at the halfway point of the second-year tournament.

Thompson and Werenski topped the leaderboard at 12 under, Finau and Talor Gooch climbed within a stroke and stars Brooks Koepka and Tommy Fleetwood struggled again Friday at the TPC Twin Cities.

In warmer and windier conditions, the scores crept up after Werenski led the first-round pack with an 8-under 63. The 24-year-old followed up with a 67. Thompson caught him with a 66.

Koepka missed the cut by one stroke after posting rounds of 70 and 71. Fleetwood joined him in making an early exit after rounds of 71 and 71.
