Seamus Power fired a five under par 67 to trail Brad Fritsch by just two shots in the Servientrega Championship Presented by Efecty on the Web.com Tour.
The West Waterford man made his sixth birdie of the day at the 18th at TPC Cartagena to share fourth spot in six under par as Fritsch shot a seven-under 65 to move into the lead.
The Canadian’s eight-under 136 total gave him a one-stroke advantage over veteran Jonathan Byrd (67) and Argentina's Jorge Fernandez-Valdes (68) after 36 holes.
Power shares fourth place with Jason Millard, who finished No. 5 on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada Order of Merit last season.
“Playing today in the morning was such an advantage,” said Fritsch, who teed off at 6:30 a.m. “If there was ever a good draw, this was the one.”
Power is 65th in the Web.com Tour money list in the race to win one of 25 spots on the PGA Tour next season.
He's made three of four cuts this and earned $9,273 with his best finish a share of 28th in the Brasil Champions presented by Embrase in early March.
