WATERFORD’S SEAMUS POWER is well and truly in the hunt heading into the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas.

Through 54 holes, Power is tied for seventh on 16 under par, four shots off leader Sam Burns.

The 34-year-old produced a five-under-par 67 on Saturday, including a spectacular 36-yard eagle chip from the greenside bunker on 14 and a birdie at the last, to remain fully in contention ahead of tomorrow’s final round.

South Korea’s Lee Kyoung-hoon is in second on 19 under, while Alex Noren, Charl Schwartzel, Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar are two shots further back, tied for third.
