Clapp finds form in Victoria

Chilliwack's Brad Clapp got back on track with a strong performance at the Bayview Place Island Savings Open.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp had a much, much, much better second outing on the PGA Tour Canada.

After missing the cut in the season opening PC Financial Open (May 28-31), the Chilliwack Golf Club instructor rebounded to finish 15th at the Bayview Place Island Savings Open.

The tournament was played Thursday through Sunday at the Uplands Golf Club in Victoria.

Clapp flirted with the cut-line, which was set at one-under-par.

He started strong with a two-under-par 68 in round one.

But an even-par 70 in round two put him through to round three by the slimmest of margins.

With the pressure off, Clapp dialed in over the last two days. A three-under-par 67 on Saturday had Clapp just six shots off the torrid pace set by eventual tourney winner Albin Choi.

Clapp played a steady fourth round, carding a 68 that included birdies on the third, seventh and 12th holes.

He ended up eight shots behind Choi, tied with Canadians Ryan Williams and Riley Fleming, American Dillon Rust and England’s Charlie Bull.

Clapp pocketed $2800 and moved up to 30th in the Order of Merit standings.

He has two weeks off before the next PGA Tour Canada event, the Syncrude Boreal Open in Fort McMurray, AB.
