Séamus Power put together an impressive final round of five-under par to finish equal-third at the Sony Open in Hawaii, four strokes short of winner Hideki Matsuyama.

The Irishman was in contention for his second PGA Tour title with a string of birdies pushing him to equal third on day three, but he could not climb further up the ladder on the final day.

The 34-year-old finished with a five-foot birdie putt on his final hole to finish four shots back and neck-to-neck with American Kevin Kisner.

But neither were able to chase down Japan’s Matsuyama, who eclipsed America’s Russell Henley with an eagle on the first play-off hole.

After both men finished the final round on 23-under par, Matsuyama hit a 277-yard three-wood within three feet of the hole on the par 5 18th en route to his eighth tour victory.
