Brad Clapp’s latest McKenzie Tour outing a tale of two rounds

The Chilliwack golfer struggled in round 1 and found his game in round 2, too late to make the cut.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp endured another rough outing on the McKenzie Tour, missing the second round cut at the Staal Foundation Open.

The four round tourney was played Thursday through Sunday at the Whitewater Golf Club in Thunder Bay, ON.

Clapp’s outing was a tale of two rounds, one disastrous and one very solid.

Clapp came out of the gate with an opening round 80, sandwiching four bogeys (five, six, eight and nine) around a double bogey on seven. He carded a second double bogey on 10 and a bogey on 17, limping into the clubhouse at eight over par.

The Chilliwack Golf Club instructor can take some solace from firing one of the strongest second rounds in the tournament, a two under par 70 that included six birdies.

But the cut line was set at one under par and Clapp stood at six over after two rounds, missing the cut for the third time in three McKenzie Tour outings this season.

The next tour stop is the Mackenzie Investments Open presented by Jaguar Laval.

The tournament tees off Thursday through Sunday at the Club de Golf Quatre Domaines, in Mirabel, QC.
