Seamus Power picked up his first PGA Tour win late in the 2020-21 season. The Irishman wasn’t able to follow it up in 2021-22, but he still had a stellar season.
Power piled up 13 top-25s, including five top-10s. He made the cut in three majors, including T-9th at the PGA Championship and T-12th at the U.S. Open. All in all, it resulted in 43rd place in the FedEx Cup.
It’s been an impressive renaissance for the journeyman to hit his stride in his mid-30s.
Power gained strokes per round in every category last season on the PGA Tour. He was 51st in total SG (.55) and 40th in putting (.283). Also, Power was 38th in birdies per round (3.95).
He’s got a decent track record at the Country Club of Jackson. In five appearances at the Sanderson Farms Championship, Power’s got three top-30s.
He took T-29th (65-69-70-77) in 2016, T-18th (68-68-71-75) in 2017 and 19th (71-68-70-68) in 2019.
“The greens are so good if you’re putting well you can you really feel you can make almost everything out here,” Power said of the Country Club of Jackson in a 2019 ASAP Sports transcription.
This is Power’s first start of the 2022-23 season and first competition since the BMW Championship in August.
It looked like he may have been running out of gas late last season, so look for him to be refreshed and ready to perform well against one of the weaker fields he’ll face all season.
