Clapp claims Pagoda Ridge Crown

The fifth major on the Vancouver Golf Tour went Brad Clapp's way, with a one shot win at Langley's Pagoda Ridge Open.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp took home $2,200 from the latest Vancouver Golf Tour event, finishing first at the Pagoda Ridge Open.

The fifth VGT major was played Thursday and Friday at the Langley course.

Clapp shot a blistering 66 in the opening round, then held on in round two for a one-stroke win over James Allenby.

Allenby represented Chilliwack’s Royalwood Golf Course.

Clapp’s opening round 66 (six under par) included birdies on seven holes.

He shot a one-under-par 71 in the second round, with birdies on the first, sixth and 13th holes.

With the win, and the 5,000 points that come with it, Clapp is up to fourth place in the VGT’s Order of Merit standings.

Playing as an amateur, Chilliwack’s Aaron Pauls tied for 13th overall with a four-over-par 148.

Representing the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, Jared Rempel tied for 19th with a six-over-par 150.

Also representing CG&CC, Nigel Sinnott tied for 29th with a 19-over-par 163.
