Clapp earned $1,200 and 1,500 Order of Merit points.

On the amateur side,Chilliwack native Kaleb Fisher shot an even par 72 to finish second overall.

Representing the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, Fisher went toe to toe with Pitt Meadows Golf Club entry Connor O’Dell.

Fisher was steady through the front nine, carding pars on every hole except the eighth. He bogied that one, and the 15th, but balanced those with birdies on the 11th and 16th holes.

Fisher and O’Dell ended up in a five-hole playoff, which O’Dell won to take the title. The victor ended up with 1500 Order or Merit points.

Fisher got 1,200.

The leaderboard was crowded near the top. Langley’s Jaewook Lee and Guilford’s Rob Arthur were both just one shot back through 18.
