Seamus Power is the highest-ranked player in the field at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship; and the only one from the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The Irishman is making his fourth appearance at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship. Power’s finished in the top 40 all three times, going T-31st (70-67-72-66) in 2019, T-37th (69-74-68-69) in 2020, and T-12th (67-70-70-67) in 2021.

Last year, he ranked 14th in the field in scrambling (71.43%), 10th in driving distance (285.1 yards), and T-16th in driving accuracy (64.29%).

Power is a journeyman coming into his halcyon days as a mid-30-something. He won his first PGA Tour event at the 2021 Barbasol Championship. Power still seeks win No. 2, but he’s played consistently well since.

In the 2021-22 season, he racked up 12 top-25s and advanced in the FedEx Cup Playoffs to the BMW Championship. Highlights included making the cut in three of four majors with T-27th at the Masters, T-9th at the PGA Championship, and T-12th at the U.S. Open. Power also advanced to the quarterfinals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and took T-3rd at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

He ranked 51st on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained per round (.55) and was 40th in SG putting (.283). Power was also 27th in greens in regulation (68.66%). His steady ball-striking, blending power (no pun intended), and accuracy should hold up well in the tumultuous weather expected this week.

“You know, you just get used to playing in the wind, I think,” Power was transcribed by Tee Scripts during the 2021 tournament.

"“Like you just kind of learn that the wind will move it back and little things like that where you’re not always trying to fight it. You see guys who don’t play in a lot of wind, you try to overdo in my opinion. Obviously everyone’s got their own way of doing it. But it’s definitely an advantage, you just kind of learn tricks and kind of what not to do here and there.”"

He’s made two cuts in three tries in the 2022-23 season. Power’s last start was T-49th last week at the CJ Cup.
