Chilliwack golfer can’t catch a break on McKenzie Tour

Five tournaments and five missed cuts for struggling golfer Brad Clapp.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp missed the cut by two strokes at the latest McKenzie Tour stop, the MacKenzie Investments Open in Montreal.

The tournament was played Thursday through Sunday at the Club de Golf Quatre Mirabel, QC.

Most weeks, shooting rounds of 71 and 69 would leave Clapp in fine shape. But the course was giving up low numbers and he ended up on the wrong side of the cut line for the fifth time in five outings this season.

A four hole stretch in the first round made the difference as Clapp double bogeyed nine and bogeyed 10 and 12.

He rebounded with birdies on 15 and 18 and shot a solid 69 in the second round, but the damage was done.

He ended up with an even-par 140.

American Hank Lebioda shot rounds of 64-64-66-66 to win the tournament by eight strokes.

Despite the result, Clapp’s scoring is improving and he has two weeks to fine-tune his game before the next McKenzie Tour stop, the Syncrude Oil Country Championship in Edmonton, AB.
