Power in Colombia cut peril; McGee lurking on the Algarve

Seamus Power is enduring a tough start to his career on the Web.com Tour and could miss his third successive cut today.

The West Waterford star missed  the cut by a shot in both the Panama Claro Championship in Bogota and the Colombia Championship Presented by Claro. 

Now's he's a shot outside the cut mark in the weather-delayed Cartagena de Indias at Karibana Championship in Colombia, where he followed an opening 74 with a 73 at Cartagena Golf Club to share 75th spot on three over.  Scores

High winds forced play to be suspended on Friday and Power will be praying that scores soar when play resumes at 7am local time. Winds rose to with gusts in excess of 40 mph forcing  officials to halt play at 3:30 p.m. with half the field struggling on the 7,135-yard, Jack Nicklaus-designed layout.

Ninety minutes later it was clear the wind would not subside enough to continue and play was called for the day.
