Dropkick Murphys Share Brilliant 'Wild Rover' Parody For Seamus Power

Dropkick Murphys Share Brilliant 'Wild Rover' Parody For Seamus Power

After his brilliant win at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship over the weekend brought him a second PGA crown, Seamus Power has had a very special performance by the Dropkick Murphys dedicated to him.

The Waterford man sealed a one shot victory over Thomas Detry at the Bermuda on Sunday, his second win on the PGA Tour.

The win will boost not only his purse, but his hopes of qualifying for next year's European Ryder Cup team in Rome.

American band Dropkick Murphys were tasked with serenading Ireland's latest PGA winner, in a video shared to the Tour's official Twitter page.

They congratulated Power on his win, before performing the traditional classic 'The Wild Rover' - with a few slightly changed lyrics.

Seamus Power: Dropkick Murphys give 'Wild Rover' rendition in honour of golfer

We can't imagine that Seamus Power was expecting to have a song sung about him by the Dropkick Murphys when he won the PGA Tour event in Bermuda this weekend but that is exactly what he got.

The American band, led by singer Ken Casey, were in flying form in a video shared from their campervan to the PGA Tour's social media.

Casey said the band wanted to give a shoutout to their "pal" Seamus Power, before launching into a modified version of 'The Wild Rover'.

The lyrics were, in fairness, impressively creative at points. The song's lyrics read:

His name's Seamus Power, he's a hell of a guy.

He tees up the rock, and then he lets it fly.

He just won the Butterfield, he's coming for the rest.

Go on now young Seamus, he'll soon be the best.

And it's no, nay, never,

no nay never, no more.

Well he played the Korn Ferry, a no never no more.

That last line is a bit of a stretch, but we have to admit we're impressed with the rest.

There is a chance that Power, along with Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry, could form part of an Irish trio at next year's Ryder Cup. If he can keep up the impressive form shown in Bermuda, he'll give himself a fantastic chance.

Has anyone booked the Dropkick Murphys for the opening ceremony yet?
