                RIO GRANDE, P.R. (Feb. 23, 2010) - Senior Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) fired a team-best round of 4-under-par 68 on the final day of the Puerto Rico Classic Tuesday at the Rio Mar Golf Club's River Course.

 

Power's day lifted him into a tie for 13th on the individual leaderboard at 6-under 210 for the event (68-74-68), and his efforts helped the No. 33-ranked ETSU men's golf team to an eighth place finish on the team leaderboard at 4-under-par 859. The Bucs finished ahead of teams such as No. 12 Alabama, as well as programs such as Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Michigan and Ohio State.

 

No. 9 Texas outlasted No. 1 Oklahoma State by six strokes for the team championship, finishing at 822 for the tournament. Individually, Oklahoma State's Kevin Tway posted a final round 66 to best Texas' Cody Gribble by three storkes. Tway finished with an impressive three round score of 17-under 199 (65-68-66).

 

Along with Power, other ETSU results included a tie for 32nd by sophomore Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland), who finished at 1-over 217. In addition, freshman Garth McGee (Bangor, Northern Ireland) tied for 39th and junior Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England) tied for 53rd.

 

The Bucs will return to action March 14 at the General Hackler Invitational in Myrtle Beach, S.C. For more on ETSU men's golf throughout the 2010 spring season, visit ETSUBucs.com and click on the men's golf link.
