    Two birds in a row -the second being a mighty birdie from a fairway bunker at the 656( !!) yards par 5 . Could be a gainful day for SP.

    Hanging that putt on the lip was so unlucky, thought he had it cos they showed him (had only tuned in few minutes beforehand). Hopefully picks up some more birdies now



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,680 ✭✭✭ hawkwing


    Seamus was 11-1 earlier to be leading irish man, going nicely now



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,680 ✭✭✭ hawkwing


    5 back now, you would wonder if he was out in the better weather on thurs/fri .....



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,286 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    He really is out of his depth at these Major thingys...

    We're a back 9 mini meltdown by Pereira away from a cracking Sunday.

    Fantastic performance..a par on the last would be great as Rory continues his meltdown.



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,394 ✭✭✭✭ Mushy


    Seriously impressive bounceback after those 2 bogies.



  • Registered Users Posts: 391 ✭✭ Lad GAGA


    Brilliant round by Seamus, same again tomorrow and who knows....



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,423 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    Where does he need to finish to guarantee Masters next year?



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,392 ✭✭✭ Motivator


    As it stands he’s qualified anyway due to his OWGR which will be improved after tomorrow anyway, but I think it’s top 8 will see him in.

    He’s currently 42 in the world, should be safely inside the top 40 with a decent finish tomorrow. Could be top 20 if he wins it…

    A magnificent round of golf from Seamus today. After a ropey couple of recent tournaments this is just an incredible showing from him so far. A long way to go but tomorrow could be very interesting if a couple more shots are dropped by those in front tonight.

    Well done Seamus Power. Watched the first 2 days but didn't watch it this evening. When Rory started dropping shots I said I'd leave it. And since then the wheels have well and truly fallen off, 6 shots dropped in 12 holes. Will tune in tomorrow evening, Seamus might be even closer if some of the others get jittery towards the end of their 3rd round.

    Fantastic by Seamus today, joint second best round of the day. 71-69-67, would be nice to keep the sequence going with a 65 tomorrow!



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,423 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    He’s put himself in a great position to have a high finish in his second major and also consolidate his place in the top 50. Two majors and two very very good performances will have shown him that he truly belongs at this level if he had any self doubts at all. He can go out today and play his own game without any undue pressure as he surely has exceeded his own baseline expectations for the week, and everything else is gravy now.

    It’s not an easy thing to keep yourself in the upper reaches of the rankings. Look at Victor Perez as just the most recent example of how quickly you can fall away so it’s great to see.

    thats tough ,double on 2nd hole .in water.All the expectation and then that,should really have made the bogey putt ,anyway needs to knuckle down and play for high position,unless leaders have meltdowns



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,423 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    The putter seems to have gone very cold. Missed a birdies chance from less than 10 ft at 9 followed by a 3-putt at 10 from inside 25ft.



  • Registered Users Posts: 910 ✭✭✭ dublin49


    pity he didnt get anything going as 3 or 4 under might have got it done



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,392 ✭✭✭ Motivator


    A number of players will be kicking themselves after today, none moreso than Seamus I would think. Conditions for him were perfect to follow up yesterday but look it, major pressure is something he hasn’t dealt with before and he put together a decent round after the fiasco on the 2nd hole. A top 10 in what could prove to be the most difficult major they’ll play this year is some achievement. Well done and that should prove to everyone he’s more than capable in these big boy events.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,408 ✭✭✭ Exactly


    40th in the World Rankings now



  • Registered Users Posts: 391 ✭✭ Lad GAGA


    Another great milestone for Seamus, a top 10 finish in a major. Even though his putter wasn't on form in the end he only finished 4 shots behind the winner. If he had any doubts about his right to be at the top table those doubts should be well and truly gone at this stage. As Motivator said so many players will be kicking themselves this morning. So many of them could have posted that score if they had been less aggressive but then nobody really expected Perreira to collapse the way he did. Its so hard to win a major and those final 9 holes sort out the men form the boys, both in playing ability and mental strength. Happy that Thomas won, his putter wasn't on fire over the last 2 days but the rest of his game was very solid. Zalatoris's putting definitely cost him that major.

    It's top 12 finishers in the Masters that qualify for the following year's Masters.

    Only top 4 plus ties from US Open, Open Championship and PGA Championship get automatic exemptions for next year's Masters.




    Top 15 plus ties in the PGA earns automatic entry into next year's PGA Championship



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,730 ✭✭✭ big_drive


    How much did he earn for the weekend?



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,392 ✭✭✭ Motivator


    $400,000. Up to 40th in the world and up to 22nd in the FedEx Cup.

    I think his trip home to Mt Juliet will be right up his alley, it’s a real ball strikers course and he could go very well. I’d say he’d rank an Irish Open win as high if not higher than his Barbasol win.



  • Registered Users Posts: 24,468 ✭✭✭✭ coylemj



    $400K was for solo 9th. Seamus was tied for 9th with three others so this pot would have been combined and split four ways ..

    9th: $400,000

    10th: $371,250

    11th: $343,750

    12th: $316,250

    all four would have picked up a cheque for $357,813. Rory got $436,600 for solo 8th.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,193 ✭✭✭ abff


    Sorry, you're right. My brain was clearly muddled after a late night,



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,046 ✭✭✭ Dr. Bre


    Power just outside top 20 and doing well so far today. Making the cut is looking good



  • Registered Users Posts: 152 ✭✭ mitchelsontour


    Looks like Seamus is well inside the cut with +1 after 36 holes. Currently 4 off the lead with the afternoon tee times to come.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,423 ✭✭✭ Panrich


    It will either be Justin Thomas or Dustin Johnson to play with tomorrow.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,392 ✭✭✭ Motivator


    Finally a big draw for Seamus in a big event by getting paired with Justin Thomas. Aside from Scheffler in the matchplay and Dustin Johnson in the Players back in March this is his biggest playing partner in terms of stature in the game.

    Another top quality performance so far. in 10 rounds in Majors I believe he’s had just one double bogey - that is phenomenal scoring when you look at the three events and three courses he’s played, all courses he’s played competitively for the first time as well. A top 20 this week would be some return and who knows if he strings a few good holes together aim higher. Playing with JT should help him as well.

    He’s going to be a hard man to stop in the Irish open also, the Mt Juliet course will suit him down to the ground.

    Fair play to him, to make the cut in his first three majors is a serious achievement, especially given the quality of those courses. Didn't realise that he has only had one double bogey in his ten rounds, great shooting, hopefully we don't put the mockers on him now. Agree with Motivator I think he will be a serious contender at Mount Juliet. Fingers crossed he puts himself into the mix after today's round.
