You know scoring is good when he fire rounds of 65, 67 and 68 and find yourself 13 off the lead. But that's the scenario facing West Waterford's Seamus Power as Gemany's Stefan Jaeger continues to smash records in the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stoneware.
Power shares 15th place on 10 under par with Jaeger seven ahead on 23 under after smashing the 54-hole scoring record on the Web.com Tour.
He broke Martin Piller's record by two shots with rounds of 58-65-64—187.
Through three record-setting loops, Jaeger has penciled in his name for the 18, 36, and 54-hole Web.com Tour scoring records. With a blemish-free, 6-under 64 in the third round, Jaeger’s wire-to-wire lead grew to seven shots Saturday, and he’s within striking distance of adding Steve Wheatcroft’s 72-hole Web.com Tour record of 255 to his collection on Sunday.
“There’s one more. I guess I’ve got to break the record for 72 holes,” Jaeger said. “It’s been a good week, it really has. I’m going to try to keep it going. The game plan doesn’t change.”
