Clapp climbs into top ten at McKenzie Tour stop

Chilliwack golfer Brad Clapp tied for ninth at the Bayview Place Island Savings Open, a PGA Tour Canada event in Victoria.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp got into the top 10 at the latest McKenzie Tour event, tying for ninth at the Bayview Place Island Savings Open.

Clapp teed off Thursday through Sunday at Victoria’s Uplands Golf Club.

He started out on fire, carding birdies on four of the first nine holes en-route to a first round 67.

He scored the same in the second round, recording a double-bogey on the 15th hole, but balancing it with an eagle on 13.

A 69 in round three took Clapp out of the lead pack and he faded further in round four as he bogied three of the first six holes. But Clapp finished strong, with birdies on 12, 13 and 14 that left him nine under par for the tournament.

No one was catching the leader.

New Westminster native Adam Cornelson scorched through the course, setting a new PGA TOUR-era scoring record on the Mackenzie Tour, finishing at 20-under par 260 for the week.

After playing eight rounds over 11 days to start the 2016 McKenzie Tour slate, Clapp now has some time to breathe.

The next event isn’t until June 23 when Saskatoon hosts the SIGA Dakota Dunes Open.
