SEAMUS POWER IS three shots off the lead following a promising opening round of 66 at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut on Thursday.  

Power enjoyed a strong front nine, shooting successive birdies on the second, third and fourth holes before a bogey on the par three fifth. 

He recovered with a birdie on the par five sixth, before closing out the front nine with three pars in a row.

Another birdie and bogey followed on 11 and 12, and Power should have birdied the 13th, too, but had to settle for par after seeing his close-range putt lip out.

He added a further birdie on the 15th and then found par on the final three holes to sit four-under for the day.

Kramer Hickok and Japan’s Satoshi Kodaira hold the early clubhouse lead, the two shooting superb rounds of 63 to sit seven-under par.
