SEAMUS POWER, THE Waterford golfer, delivered a strong start to his quest to land the Sony Open in Hawaii, shooting a seven-under round of 63 to finish the day in a tie for fourth.

Leader Kevin Na is two shots ahead of Power, who had a superb day, nailing seven birdies without any bogeys to blemish his scorecard.

Key to Power’s success was the way he set the tone early, birdying three of the first six holes. Seven straight pars followed before he finished with a bang, birdying four of the final five holes.

Na leads on nine-under after shooting a 61 with veteran Jim Furyk in a tie for second, one shot behind.

Power is tied for fourth alongside Kevin Chappell, Patton Kizzire, Michael Thompson, and Haotong Li.

Ulster’s Graeme McDowell is tied for 100th place after shooting a 70.
