One stop remains for Clapp

The PGA Tour Canada schedule draws to a close this weekend, with Chilliwack's Brad Clapp looking to end on a high note.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp finished in a tie for 62nd overall at last weekend’s Cape Breton Celtic Classic.

Held in Ben Eoin, NS, the tournament was the second-to-last stop on the 2014 PGA Tour Canada schedule.

Clapp, an instructor at the Chilliwack Golf Academy, struggled through four rounds at The Lakes Golf Club. He made the cut by one stroke after firing an opening round 72 and a second round 71.

He started round three with an eagle on the opening hole, followed by seven pars and a birdie. But the back nine killed him. Clapp carded a double bogey on the 10th hole and bogeys on the 11th, 13th, 15th and 17th holes.

He finished with a 74, and things got worse in the fourth round.

Clapp bogeyed four holes and double-bogeyed the 10th (again) en-route to a 77.

Clapp’s four round total of 294 was 21 strokes behind the tournament winner, American Mark Silvers.

The final PGA Tour Canada Stop is this weekend’s Tour Championship, a four rounder running Thursday through Sunday at the Sunningdale Golf and Country Club in London, ON.
