Cheam’s Kevin Stinson second at Fraser Valley Open

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp slid into the top 10 at the three-round Vancouver Golf Tour major.

Kevin Spooner shot rounds of 67, 68 and 64 to win last weekend’s Fraser Valley Open golf tournament.

The Vancouver Golf Tour major was held over three days at three different courses.

The opening round was played at the Chilliwack Golf Club, the second round at the Sandpiper Golf Course (Harrison Mills) and the third round at The Falls Golf Club.

Spooner, representing the Capilano Golf and Country Club, pocketed an impressive first-place cheque for $10,000.

Cheam Mountain Golf Course instructor Kevin Stinson was Spooner’s biggest rival, carding rounds of 67-69-67 to finish second and pocked $3,000.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp bypassed the McKenzie Tour’s Cape Breton Open to play on his home course and finished sixth, 12 strokes off the lead.

Connor McLellan, Matt Gudmundson and Chad McAdie finished 18-19-20. Kaleb Fisher was 33rd and Evan Woudstra 34th.

Chilliwack’s Jerome Cavanaugh went wire-to-wire to take the amateur title.

The Kinkora golfer was the only entrant to crack par, going one under with rounds of 72-72-70 to leave runner up Mike Aizawa (Richmond) seven strokes behind.

Chilliwack’s Mathew Lamb tied for third at 10 over par. David Yaromich was eighth, Dean Sterner was 12th and Dean Meyer 13th.
