S eamus Power was dis- appointed after his final round 77 saw him slip from sixth to just inside the top 30 at the Sanderson Farms Championship but he wasn't devastated. After leaving himself in a perfect po- sition to challenge after three rounds last weekend, Power knows on his day he can chal- lenge and win on the PGA Tour. The tied 29th finish moved the West Waterford native up to 103rd in the FedEx Cup stand- ings, $26,705 richer and five spots higher (he's 20th) in the priority list with three events to go before the reshuffle. A confident Power can't wait to tee it up in this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. "If you can beat everyone for 18 holes, you can build it up to 36, 54 and then 72 holes," said Power. "I have to look at it that way. Obviously it was a bad last round and I was disappointed." "But it was a great experience obviously to be in contention in only my second start and it is still early enough in the season that if I can learn from it, it will be a good lesson for me." "It seems weird to say that but it definitely gives me confidence, even after a poor last round — knowing that I can easily put my- self in that position again and it is just a matter of finishing it off." Power is determined to take ad- vantage of the three events he has remaining before the Christmas break — this week's start in Las Vegas, the OHL Classic at May- akoba in Mexico where Graeme McDowell defends and the RMS Classic at Sea Island in Georgia. It won't be an easy task to retain his PGA Tour card but last week's form is certainly a positive start. Seamus Power eyes Las Vegas jackpot POSITIVE POWER
