It wasn’t the weekend that Seamus Power would have wanted at the Wyndham Championship and his final round 69 on Sunday means that he will now head to the Korn Ferry Tour Finals (the new name for the Web.com Play-Offs) in an attempt to keep his PGA Tour card.
It’s been a touch and go for Power in recent seasons as he just managed to secure his card as the last man standing and he needed another miracle this time around to move inside the top 125 to keep their card.
Power started the week at 144th on the FedEx Cup rankings and while he opened with a superb round of 64 on Thursday he failed to capitalise on it and his seven under par total left him languishing well down the field, significantly short of the strong finish he needed.
Power now finds himself facing the top 75 players from the second tier of US Tour golf as well as those who finished between 126th– 200th on the FedEx Cup points list over three tournaments with the top 50 players winning varying degrees of PGA Tour cards for the following season.
Talking to Sky Sports Power said there were positives to take from the weekend’s golf but he was left with too much to do;
“There was some good stuff to build on going into the Korn Ferry play-offs so I just have to go there and play well. It was really the start, I mean I really struggled until probably April, May time. And I just had a bit too much ground to make up.”
“So it was frustrating as I had high hopes going into the season but you don’t really have much time to regroup. You’ve just got to take a few days off here and get ready to go again in 10 days’ time. So some positives, but more negatives than positives unfortunately. But again you have to get the attitude turned around here pretty quick.”
