Clapp concludes rookie year on PGA Tour Canada

The Chilliwack Golf Academy instructor fashioned a strong end to an up and down season, finishing 36th at the Tour Championship.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp finished the 2014 PGA Tour Canada schedule on an up note, finishing 36th overall at the Tour Championship.

The season finale was played last weekend at the Sunningdale Golf and Country Club in London, ON.

Clapp struggled to an opening round 73, carding bogeys on five holes.

But the Chilliwack Golf Academy instructor bounced back with a flawless second round. Clapp shot 67, with birdies on four of the first nine holes.

Clapp couldn’t duplicate the feat in rounds three (74) or four (75). Round three ended with a double-bogey on the 18th hole.

Round four saw him card two double-bogeys on the fourth and 17th holes.

He finished 15 strokes behind the tournament winner. Surrey native Ryan Williams shot a four-day 274 to edge runner-ups Adam Cornelson and Clayton Rask by one stroke.

Clapp finished the season 37th on the PGA Tour Canada money list with $17,190.

Playing in 12 events, he earned one top-10 finish, at his first career tournament, made eight cuts and averaged 71.67 per round.
