The term “career-changing win” may be an overused platitude among golf writers who attempt to contextualize the importance of a win – or the potential for a win – for any given player. The point is, all wins, especially on the PGA Tour, are inherently career-changing, to varying degrees.

Of course, had 54-hole co-leader Ben Griffin hung on and won the Butterfield Bermuda Championship on Sunday, the term would definitely have applied. The 26-year-old North Carolina rookie was making just his eighth career start in a PGA Tour event after being out of play for a time in 2020. The first-place prize at Port Royal Golf Club was 1. $17 million, which would be nearly triple the $447,545 he has earned on tour so far in his young career.

But Griffin couldn’t hang on, making four bogeys and a double over his final seven holes to lose a two-stroke lead and eventually finish tied for third place.

Enter Seamus Power, who shared the lead with Griffin to start the day. The 35-year-old Irishman already had a victory on the PGA Tour (Barbasol Championship 2021) to his credit and the distinction of being the highest ranked player on the board (48th). But while he had already earned $7 million in his career and played in all four majors in 2022, a win would still not only be meaningful but would also change his career. And that’s after finishing one under 70 to win the title with a total of 19 under 265, one shot ahead of runner-up Thomas Detry.

AFTER: Clubs Seamus Power used to win in Bermuda

“I knew it was going to be tough getting in, and it was,” Power said after a bogey on the last hole. “I worked hard to get to the end. Glad to be done.

“A completely different feeling but just as special. It is so hard.”

The overall scholarship in Bermuda is $6.5 million. Here’s the prize money for every golfer who made the cut this week. Check back shortly after the event ends and we’ll update it with names and individual wins.
