Congratulations to West Waterford’s Seamus Power who claimed his first professional win on the Web.Com Tour at the weekend in the United Leasing & Finance Championship at Victoria National GC in Indiana. Seamus carded scores of 69, 70, 70 and a final round of 67 to finish on 12 under par giving him a one shot win over Jonathan Randolph, Adam Schenk and Cody Gribble who all finished tied 2nd. Ryan Sloan finished in 5th place.
He began his 4th round on Sunday just 2 strokes behind leader Adam Schenk. After 12 holes Seamus was on 4 under. He was 3 strokes adrift of the new leader Ryan Sloan. Seamus went on to par the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th, birdied 17th and then got up and down for par on the 18th for a superb 5 under. Seamus was leader in the Clubhouse on 12 under and had to await his fate as Sloan, Gribble and Shenck all had to finish.
