West Waterford Golf Club member and Ballinamult native, Seamus Power, will tee off at the US Open in Brookline on Thursday. All in Tipperary wish him the very best over, we hope, four days.
Seamus Power playing in his third Major at the US Open
Following on impressive performances at the Master and the PGA Championship, Ballinamult native and West Waterford Golf Club member, Seamus Power must be looking forward with confidence to teeing it up at the Country Club of Brookline for his first appearance in the US Open on this Thursday, June 16.
Seamus has worked hard and long to earn his place in the majors and has already shown that he can compete with the best at this level. His childhood dream will be realized when he makes his appearance at the 150th Open at St Andrews.
“Everyone at the moment is asking me about Augusta, but the 150th anniversary Open at St Andrews would be incredible. I played the St Andrews Links Trophy there as an amateur. It’s so special to play there, so to play the Open there would be incredible. That’s more on my radar than any of the rest and it would be an unbelievable month of golf with the Irish Open (at Mount Juliet) and then two weeks later St Andrews. So, that’s my goal for the month of July anyway.”
As always our thoughts are with you Seamus as we look forward to meeting you at Mount Juliet. For the moment we will console ourselves with a front row seat on Sky Sports at the weekend.
