Season of struggles continues for Chilliwack golfer

Brad Clapp is zero for six making cuts on the PGA Canada McKenzie Tour in 2017

Struggling golfer Brad Clapp missed the cut at the Syncrude Oil Country Championship in Edmonton as his tough season continues on the McKenzie Tour.

Clapp went two rounds at the Windermere Golf and Country Club, shooting 70-74 on the par 70 course and missing the line of one-over by three strokes.

The Chilliwack Golf Club instructor got off to a promising start Thursday with a birdie on the second hole, but ran into trouble soon after with bogies on five, seven and nine.

A birdie on 11 was followed right after by a double bogey on 12 and bogies on 14 and 17. Clapp birdied 18 but the damage was done with a four-over-par 74.

Needing to go low in round two, Clapp instead bogied three of the first six holes. He made a run on the back nine with three birdies, but the hole was too deep to dig his way out of.

It is the sixth time in six outings that Clapp has bowed out after two rounds and only five tournaments remain on the 2017 McKenzie Tour schedule.

The ATB Financial Classic started yesterday and continues through Sunday at the Country Hills Golf Club in Calgary.
