Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Seamus Power
The team comprised of Australians Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith took down all competitors and claimed the title on the 73rd hole at TPC Louisiana.
Cameron Smith has found success in this event before, and Len Hochberg believes the duo of Smith and Marc Leishman will do the same in this week's contests on DraftKings.
Will Gordon may not have many PGA Tour starts under his belt, but his upside makes him one of Ryan Andrade's favorite options in this week's contests on FanDuel.
Mackenzie Hughes is among the top-ranked players in this week's field, which helps him earn a spot among Len Hochberg's golfers to consider in the next DFS golf contests on DraftKings.
The RotoWire golf crew projected 2020-21 earnings for more than 200 golfers who have PGA Tour cards for this season. What will Dustin Johnson do to back up his Tour championship?
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Power has spent two seasons on the PGA Tour and he's finished 130th and 114th on the FedEx points list. While Power improved his FedEx position last season, when consider that he was 15th on the PGA Tour in strokes-gained putting, the minimal gain in points is a bit of a letdown. Power's overall game is not where it needs to be in order to see a significant improvement. Power would need to improve his tee-to-green game while maintaining his incredible putting from last season and that's just not likely to happen. With that in mind, Power is not a good salary cap option this season.
Power's rookie season on the PGA Tour started slowly but ended with promise as he notched three of his four top-25s in his final five events. If Power can muster enough starts to build momentum early in the wraparound season, look for him to flirt with $1 million or more in earnings. Of course there's downside for a sophomore slump that tosses him between the PGA and Web.com tours, but you could do much worse than the 30-year-old Irishman.
Not sure what this says about Power or the crop of potential European Ryder Cup captain's picks, but Seamus, pronounced "Shamus," was on some lists of potential options for Darren Clarke. He was not picked, but that doesn't diminish his impressive 2016 campaign. He got his PGA Tour card through a win at the United Leasing & Finance Championship, and had a solid summer run that included three top-20 finishes, one at the Rio Olympics where he represented Ireland and tied for 15th. That week, in a limited but still strong field, he ranked 14th in SG tee-to-green, complementing a season-long Web.com Tour ranking of 13th for greens in regulation. Don't be surprised if Power sneaks up on some leaderboards early. The mere mention of him has a possible captain's pick shows you what those across the pond think of him.
