Clapp finds form in Ottawa

Chilliwack's Brad Clapp made the cut in his latest PGA Canada Tour stop, a step in the right direction for the struggling golfer.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp went the distance in his latest PGA Tour Canada event, playing all four rounds at the Forces and Families Open.

The tournament was played Thursday through Sunday at the Hylands Golf Club in Ottawa.

Clapp was consistent, firing rounds of 70-70-72-70. He got off to a quick start in round one, with birdies on four of the first nine holes.

Still, he narrowly missed the cut line.

His 140 through two rounds kept him playing while seven golfers with 141s went home.

Clapp’s tournament highlight came in the fourth round, where he carded an eagle on the par-five eighth hole.

His final scorecard counted 13 birdies plus that eagle against 13 bogeys.

He took 282 strokes.

Clapp didn’t have any disastrous holes, and finished in a tie for 64th overall.

This was the inaugural edition of the Forces and Families Open, organized to benefit the Military Families Fund with the support of Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services and the PGA TOUR Canada.

All members of the Canadian Armed Forces, their families and veterans were able to attend the entire week free of charge.

Canadian Greg Machtaler was the tourney champion with a 17 under par 267, pocketing $27,000.

There are only four stops left on this year’s PGA Tour Canada schedule. Clapp plays in the Great Waterway Classic Aug. 21-24 at the Loyalist Golf Club in Kingston, ON.
