Seamus Power in Top Ten.
A magnificent 6 under par in his final round earned Seamus 13th place in the Championship played at Wintergreen Resort last weekend. Finishing on 13 under par for the competition the West Waterford man is now in 10th position on the money list for the E Tour. A top 20 finish for the season would put Seamus in a very strong position for next season and could very well be the launching pad to a major step forward in his professional career. There are still a number of events remaining in the current season and based on his current form he is well on target to achieve his goal. You can follow his progress on www.westwaterfordgolf.com or by logging on to egolf tour.
