SEAMUS POWER CARDED an excellent final round of 67 to seal a top 10 finish at the Rocket Mortgage Classic on the PGA Tour, as Cameron Davis emerged as the winner after a play-off that last five holes.

Power’s strong closing round left him in the clubhouse at -15 as the Irish player finished in a tie for 8th.

The tournament went to a play-off decided by Joaquin Niemann, Davis and Troy Merritt, as that trio all finished on -18.

Niemann bogeyed the first play-off hole to drop out of contention before Davis and Merritt matched each other over the next three holes. Eventually Davis won out after he parred the par-three 15th, the second time they had played that hole, and Merritt could only manage a bogey.

For Waterford native Power it was another successful week, his second top ten finish of the season after previously ending in a tie for 9th at AT&T Byron Nelson, and the eighth of his career on the PGA Tour.

Five birdies and 13 pars featured in Power’s round at the Detroit Golf Club as he didn’t drop any shots today. He picked up shots on the 3rd and 7th in his front nine before improving further on the back nine with birdies on the 10th, 14th and 17th.
