Our USPGA professional paid a welcome visit to the club at the weekend during a short break from his busy schedule.
As always Seamus mingled with members and visitors as they shared stories of his exploits on the PGA circuit. On Saturday we had an informal gathering of members and friends as we watched Ireland record a magnificent victory over England in the Six Nations.
Among the guests was the honorary treasurer of the Olympic Council of Ireland Billy Kennedy. Billy’s association with the Spratt family goes back over 30 years. He was the cycling coach of Team Ireland at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul where Stephen Spratt was part of the Irish cycling team. In recognition of Seamus Power’s participation in the Rio Olympics Billy very kindly presented a framed shirt worn by Stephen back in 1988. A very nice gesture Billy and much appreciated by Seamus and all at West Waterford.
Seamus returned to the U.S. on Sunday and travels on to Coco Beach Golf & Country Club where he will play in the Puerto Rico Open March 23rd - 26th.
