Power moves in the right direction as Redman takes 54 hole lead at The Bermuda Championship

Must Read

After just scraping through to the weekend Seamus Power fired a three-under-par moving day 68 at the Bermuda Championship to move up 22 spots on the leaderboard to a tie for 36th.

Power returned to the PGA Tour this week for the first occasion in six weeks since contesting the opening two events of the 2020/21 wraparound schedule – the Safeway Open and Corales Puntana Championship – where he twice missed the halfway cut.

The West Waterford professional will hope to emulate his Sunday Finish in 2019 as he capped his week with a closing round 66 to finish T31st on the Royal Blue course, a 66 today could get him close to a top 20 finish and much needed FedEx Cup points.

Padraig Harrington carded a level par 71 to drop to a tie for 24th at -4 total six shots off the lead. That lead is held by Doc Redman who found the wind far more manageable Saturday, and he took advantage with a 4-under 67 for a one-shot advantage going into the final in Bermuda.

The wind came out of the opposite direction as the previous day and it wasn’t quite as strong. It showed in the scores and in the number of opportunities for players who never won or have gone without winning in years.

Redman was at 10-under 203, one shot ahead of Ryan Armour (70), Wyndham Clark (70) and Kramer Hickok (69), who took three putts from a tough spot on the fringe on the 18th at Port Royal. Another shot behind were Matt Jones (66), Brian Gay (67) and Ollie Schniederjans (69). Jones was bogey-free in the third round, which to him was as impressive as any of his five birdies.

Redman, the 2017 U.S. Amateur champion, is among 10 players separated by four shots who have never won on the PGA TOUR.

“I feel like with the wind switching, it was a little easier,” Redman said. “And it was still really windy. But yesterday was incredible. We couldn’t have been far away from stopping play yesterday. That made it a little easier. And the greens roll great, so if you have looks at it you can make birdies.”

A victory Sunday comes with an invitation to the Masters next April.
