SEAMOUS POWER IS just one place outside an automatic PGA Tour card for next season following a top-10 finish at the Canadian Open last night.

The Irish golfer shot a final round 66 to finish 16-under and secure the first top-10 finish of his PGA Tour career.

The result also leaves Power in 126th place in the FedEx Cup rankings with just three events to go; the top 125 gain a Tour card for the 2017/18 season.

Moving up just one spot over the next three events would not only secure Power’s playing rights for next season, but also a place in the lucrative end-of-season playoffs.

Power’s final round saw him charge up the leaderboard; opening with two birdies in his first three holes before a run of five birdies between 13 and 18 moved him into a tie for 10th with Sean O’Hair, James Hahn and Andres Gonzales.

The event was won by Jhonattan Vegas; the Venezuelan chipping to within a foot on the first playoff hole to claim the victory from Charley Hoffman.
