Clapp’s struggles continue on PGA Tour Canada

Chilliwack Golf Club instructor Brad Clapp is trying to find traction as a rookie on the competitive circuit.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp missed the cut at last weekend’s Staal Foundation Open, leaving after two rounds.

The four round tournament was played Thursday through Sunday at the Whitewater Golf Course in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Clapp had an uneven first round. He carded birdies on four holes and bogeys on two to finish with a two-under-par 70.

He started the second round with a birdie on the third hole, but bogeyed four others en-route to a two-over-par 74.

That left him straddling the cut-line.

He ended up missing by just one stroke.

It’s the third time in his last four outings that Clapp’s left early as he continues to adjust to life on the high-calibre tour.

His next chance at redemption comes July 31 to Aug. 3 at the ATB Financial Classic.

The Sirocco Golf Club in Calgary hosts the tournament, with a total prize purse of $150,000.
