Clapp contends at Cape Breton Celtic Classic

A solid opening round had Brad Clapp near the lead at the PGA Tour Canada event before he fell off the pace.

Brad Clapp stumbled in his latest PGA Tour Canada event, but still finished inside the top 50 at the Cape Breton Celtic Classic.

The four-round tourney was played Thursday through Sunday at The Lakes Golf Club in Ben Eoin, NS.

Clapp, who’s enjoyed a solid sophomore season, followed a familar pattern with a solid first round.

Clapp’s 69 had him within sight of the leaders.

He followed that with rounds of 71, 70 and 71 to finish at 281. That left him at seven under par, 12 shots behind the tourney winner.

Taiwanese golfer Cheng-Tsung Pan topped Canadian Taylor Pendrith on the second playoff hole to claim the $31,500 winners’ cheque.

Clapp pocketed a little less ($770) for finishing in a tie for 40th, and has made a total of $39,119 on tour this year.

He has one more chance to pad his bank account, with the Freedom 55 Financial Championship starting Thursday in London, ON.
