Having opened with rounds of 68, 70 Power found himself in position to perform well over the weekend, something that unfortunately hasn’t been his strong suit this season. However a round of 64 on Saturday boosted him 30+ places up the leaderboard by Saturday night and he was T11 heading into the final round on Sunday, eight shots behind leader Scott Stalling.
Power’s final round got off to a great start on Sunday as he birdied the first but a bogey on 6 followed by a birdie on 8 saw him reach the turn in 34 strokes. However, while a tilt at the title wasn’t on the cards a Top 20 finish was and Power birdied 12 and 16 before a bogey on 17 and returned a -2 score of 69 to leave him in T18 place overall and earn him almost $43,000.
