Seamus Power brings its heart back to Ireland

Posted by on   /   Posted in golf reviews

Two of the top 10 & # 39; s arrived in 2019, in back-to-back weeks: a draw for sixth place in the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, SC, and a tie for fifth in a team match in the Zurich Classic or New Orleans. He had missed the cut for Hilton Head in 11 of his last 15 appearances.

Power has earned much of his success this year with the work he did with instructor Justin Parsons, whom he met in February during the stop of the tour in the Los Angeles area.

Parsons is also Irish, which makes a difference.

"He probably knows more about dealing with me than with other boys," Power said. "The information, I think, comes across to me a little more clearly."

Parsons said that Power had a lot of potential.

"He can be a top 50 player in the world," said Parsons, who teaches at Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia. "He hits the golf ball over 300 meters in the air. Not only that, he is an excellent putter with a fantastic short game." fight this week. The field includes Louis Oosthuizen, Tommy Fleetwood, Ian Poulter, Jon Rahm and Matt Wallace.

There is also a contingent of Irish players, including the triple-great champion Padraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell, Paul Dunne and Shane Lowry, as well as Cormac Sharvin and Robin Dawson, who received invitations like Power.

Power still has the chance to earn a place in the British Open this month at Royal Portrush Golf Club, the first time the Open has been played in Northern Ireland since 1951.

As much as Power likes to live in the United States, there is no place like home.

"My heart is always going to be in Ireland," he said.
