The Players Championship –  Seamus Celebrates at Sawgrass.

Seamus Power brilliantly celebrated St Patrick’s Day a day early with a first PGA Tour ace and the 12th hole- in-one of his career on day three of the Players Championship at Sawgrass at the weekend.  His last hole-in-one was four years ago when he won a BMWx4 for an ace in a Web.com tour event.   It was a memorable weekend for the West Waterford golfer who recorded rounds of 74,67,73 and 69 for a four round total of 5 under par.  No mean achievement when you consider that the field consisted of 144 of the top golfers in the world, playing in one of the most prestigious events on the PGA Tour calendar.  Seamus finished tied 35th which earned him a cheque for $60,312.00.  The result gives him a much needed confidence boost as he heads into the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort on March 21 – 24th.  Well done Seamus, keep up the good work.
