A Gleaming First FedEx Cup Play-Offs BMW Awaits Power.

Panamus, New Jersey …

A gleaming new BMW 530i black sedan and his own parking place was awaiting Seamus Power upon arrival at this week’s Northern Trust Open in New Jersey.

The BMW is among a fleet of 120 courtesy cars that will be parked at the Ridgewood Country Club course with five players, including Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler, who had qualified for the top-125 on the Tour money-list electing not to tee-up for this week’s opening event of the lucrative FedEx Cup Play-Off series.

The courtesy car and clubhouse parking arrangements are no different to any other week on the PGA Tour but it’s the first time Power’s name has appeared in the field for a Play-Off event.

With a prize purse of $US 9m (Euro 7.85m), it is also the richest event the proud West Waterford Golf Club golfer has competed since Power made his main Tour debut in late 2016.

Power’s previous biggest money event start in his now 52 PGA Tour events was last May’s $US 7.7m Wells Fargo Championship.

However, it had been an anxious last weekend wait for the 31-year old after having missed the cut in the Wyndham Championship after arriving at Greensboro lying 123rd on the FedEx Cup money list.

Power watched over the weekend as a number of players went ahead of him including Masters winning, Sergio Garcia who began the week at 131stand had moved into 125th with nine holes to play at Greensboro.

Garcia then imploded bogeying three of five holes from the 10th and while the Spaniard did birdie 15 and 17 it was not good enough and with last year’s Augusta champion falling short at 128th and virtually gift-wrapping Power 125th place.

It was the assurance of Power’s Tour card for the 2018/19 season but also a start this week in the Northern Trust.
