Seamus Power leads the eGolf Professional Tour's money list by more than $12,000 after finishing second in the Columbia Open in South Carolina.

The 27-year old West Waterford man has won once and finished no worse than tied sixth in his first five starts of the year, picking up $33,414 on a tour where it costs between €1,600 and $2,000 to be a member with tournament entry fees of just over $1,000 every week.

Three behind leader Ryan Sullivan starting the day, Power closed with a two under 69 to finish three strokes behind South Korea's Sunny Kim, who fired a 67 to finish on 15 under par and take home $14,000.

“Ryan had some tough breaks at the beginning, but for me, I’m playing the golf course,”Kim said of the overnight leader, who shot 74 to slip to tied fourth. “My goal was to get to 16-under today, and I thought if I shot 5-under today, I’d have a good chance to win.”

Power, a former East Tennessee State star, earned $8,000 for the week and now has five top-6 finishes in five starts, including his third career tour win at the Cowan's Ford Open in March.

The eGolf Tour will be off the next two weeks for U.S. Open local qualifying, but will return to action on May 21-23, 2014 for the annual Willow Creek Open, to be contested at Willow Creek Country Club in High Point, NC.

Alps Tour

On the Alps Tour in France, Brendan McCarroll shot a two under 70 to finish tied for eighth in the Open International de Rebetz. Scores

The Ballyliffin man earned €925 as he finished three shots behind Matthieu Pavon of France on four under. Co Louth's Simon Ward closed with a one under 71 to finished tied 20th and earn €533.
