He overtook the overnight leader Jack Fields with a run of four birdies between the 12th and 17th and a par three on the closing hole was good enough for a one shot win.

The $13,500 payday has take Power’s earnings for 2014 to $60, 164, almost $26,000 ahead of second place Fields.

“This has been a good year so far, it’s been very consistent,” said Power in one of the bigger understatements of the year. “This week was a week when I didn’t have my ‘A’ long game but mentally I was very good and my short game was sharp. It was just good enough to win.”
