MACON, Ga. (May 3, 2007) - April was a good month for ETSU's Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland). Along with winning the individual title at the 2007 Atlantic Sun Men's Golf Championship and being selected as the Freshman of the Year, Power has also earned Golfer of the Month honors, league officials announced Wednesday.
Power, a freshman from Waterford, Ireland, bested some of the nation's top golfers at the 2007 Men's Golf Championship in Waverly, Ga., including teammate and No.1 ranked Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales). Following his performance at the championship, Power jumped to No.46 in Golfweek's rankings.
At the championship, Power aced the par-3 13th hole and carded a 29 on the back nine during the second round. He finished the event 3-under-par and garnered a two-stroke victory. His individual title also helped earn ETSU its first conference title since joining the Atlantic Sun. It is the second GOTM honor for Power, who earned the same award back in February.
The Atlantic Sun Golfer of the Month is announced on Thursday during the first full week of the month.
The 12-member league headquartered in Macon, Ga., consists of Belmont, Campbell, ETSU, Gardner-Webb, Jacksonville, Kennesaw State, Lipscomb, Mercer, UNF and Stetson with Florida Gulf Coast and USC Upstate beginning competition in 2007-08.
