Double Delight for our two Professionals
Congratulations and well done to Seamus Power and Gary Hurley who both had brilliant performances at the weekend. Following on a top 20 finish last week Gary went on to record a career best 3rd place finish at the Roma Alps Letas Open in Italy on Saturday last. It’s only a matter of time before Gary gets his first win on the Challenge Tour.
Seamus Power’s historic PGA Tour victory has been well flagged over his last 5 events. World class golf and a composed attitude for the occasion were rewarded in the West Waterford mans maiden victory. A two year exemption and a top 60 position on the FedEx cup rankings will give Seamus the opportunity to concentrate on his professional career and build on his success to date. All at West Waterford send our heartiest congratulations to Seamus and Gary.
