What a great couple of days it has been for Irish golf.

Just over 24 hours after Greystones Paul Dunne won his first European Tour event with a stunning 61 at the British Masters at Close Head for a three-shot win over Rory McIlroy, Waterford's Seamus Power has retained his PGA Tour card.

He had just $287 to spare.

The Rio Olympian finished 48th in the concluding Web.Com Tour Championship in Florida after just making the cut by a solitary stroke.

His finish was just about good enough to secure 25th place among the top-25 who gained full main Tour membership.

He will now jet off to take his place in the $6.2m Safeway Open at Napa, California, the opening event of the new PGA Tour season.
