After using Twitter to find a partner for this weeks duo event on the PGA Tour, David Hearn and Irishman partner Seamus Power have made the cut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. They sit tied for 21st with a score of -7 going into the third round.
One unique aspect of making the cut this week is that each pair gets to choose a walkup song to be played at the first tee when the pair is teeing off in each of the last two rounds.
Hearn and Power choose the Dropkick Murphy’s rock song Shipping up to Boston as their walk-up song for the final two rounds.
This song choice was both surprising and unsurprising, as Power is from Ireland and this is one of the most well-known songs, from the genre Irish rock. However, Hearn the Brantford native is known as a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Maple Leafs recently got eliminated in seven games by the Boston Bruins after being down 3-1 in the series. Although, the Leafs forced a seventh game in Boston on Wednesday in which they “shipped it back to Boston” but unfortunately Hearn’s Leafs lost 7-4. The Bruins now face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference semi final starting today, April 28th.
Fellow Canadians, Corey Conners and Mackenzie Hughes paid tribute to the victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash by using Tom Cochrane’s special version of the song Big League.
