West Waterford’s Séamus Power brilliantly qualified for this week’s Wells Fargo Championship when he fired an eight-under 62 to win the Monday qualifier at Gaston Country Club in North Carolina.

The Munster ace (34) made six birdies as he raced to the turn in 29, then picked up two more to top the qualifier by two strokes from Keenan Huskey.


Lucas Herbert shot a five-under 65 to take the third of four places on offer before Patrick Cover edged out Danny Guise for the final spot after they both shot 68s.

The win is a huge boost for Power, who was forced to withdraw before the start of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans two weeks ago after testing positive for COVID-19.

Power was scheduled to tee it up in the Korn Ferry Tour's Simmons Bank Open at The Grove in Tennessee but will now join Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry at Quail Hollow.

He made the cut in his three precious starts in the event, finishing tied 13th in 2019.
