Seamus Power made better going of his second round at the 2019 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
The Waterford native, who plays on the PGA Tour, shot a 66 in Lahinch, having scored a 70 on Thursday.
That leaves him on 4-under, tied for 21st and five shots off leader Zander Lombard.
Lahinch is a change of scenery for Power but one that he was well acquainted with prior to moving Stateside.
He discussed that with John Duggan after his second round.
"I played the South multiple times and then we played inter-provincials here. So all in all, I've probably played [Lahinch] 20 times," he said.
"I've seen a lot of it. This is some of the nicer conditions I've ever seen. The rough is down and even today it was breezy, but nothing like what I've played it in.
"So it's a little different and the ball is going a little bit further. But you still remember a lot of things."
He also discussed how the experience differs as a returnee to his home province.
"It's a very different experience for me. I'm not used to having familiar faces looking back when you're looking around," he said.
"So it's nice and a very nice feeling. You kind of want to play well for yourself but also for your family and friends who have come to watch. It's a different type of pressure I felt the last couple of days.
"You're not concerned about positions, rather just trying to play well and get some excitement going. It's a nice feeling and hopefully I can keep it going."
