Second round woes sink Clapp

The scene of last season's greatest triumph was a source of heartbreak last week for Chilliwack golfer Brad Clapp.

Brad Clapp struggled in the opening tournament of the 2015 PGA Tour Canada season, missing the cut at the PC Financial Open.

Clapp tied for second at this same tourney last year, held at the Point Grey Golf Club, and the Chilliwack Golf Club instructor started this year’s event strong,  firing an open round 69 that had him just three off the lead.

But Clapp was undone by a shaky second round, a four-over-par 76 that included double bogeys on the second and 10th holes.

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

Five golfers tied for the tourney lead at 12 under par and had to settle matters in a playoff.

American Drew Weaver out-lasted the other four to pocket $31,500 in prize money.

Clapp has little time to mope with the second tournament starting Thursday.

He’ll be at Victoria’s Uplands Golf Club for the Bayview Place Island Savings Open.
