Seamus Power on a visit home to West Waterford after securing his Web.com Tour card

There was no confirmation of an Irish Open place just yet but Seamus Power could still be reasonably content on Friday as a two under 70 left him tied for fourth in the United Leasing & Finance Championship in Indiana.

The West Waterford golfer is on five under par at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, five strokes behind Bhavik Patel, who added a 69 to his opening 65 to lead by two strokes from Brandon Hagy on 10 under par.

It could have been a lot better for Power, who birdied the fourth, seventh, ninth and and 15th to be seven under for the tournament.

But he made a double bogey six at the 17th after a poor tee shot to fall back to two under for the day and end up five behind Patel who was second in the Brasil Champions in early April.
