Power hits route 66 in Nevada

Seamus Power

West Waterford's Seamus Power soared 22 places to tied 13th in the eGolf Professional Tour's $250,000 Championship at Red Hawk in Nevada.

The current leader of the South Carolina based tour's money list fired seven birdies in a six under 66 on the Robert Trent Jones-designed Lakes course and now trails leader Richard Fountain by seven shots on nine under par. Scores
