Power breaks into world's top 50 after Sony Open finish

Waterford golfer Seamus Power is on course for a maiden Masters appearance after a superb finish at the Sony Open.

He's into the world's top 50 for the first after after ending the week in a tie for third in Hawaii.

Power is now ranked 49th - just one place behind fellow Irishman Shane Lowry.

He'll earn an invite to Augusta if he remains in the top 50 at the end of March.

The rise through the world rankings has been remarkable for Power, who clinched his first PGA Tour title last season.

His win at the Barbasol Championship, as well as a series of good finishes, has helped propel him from 434th a year ago to 49th today.

Power's final round of five-under-par 65 was enough for a 19-under total in Honolulu.

Having gone off in the second last group, Power got off to a fast start with birdies at the first and second.

He reached the turn at three-under for the day following a blemish free front nine, before mixing three back nine birdies with a solitary bogey at the par-three 11th.

Power was four shots behind eventual winner and reigning Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama.

The Japanese player got the better of overnight leader Russell Henley in a play-off, after both players finished on 23-under.
