Second time struggle for Clapp

After a sparkling PGA Tour Canada debut, Chilliwack's Brad Clapp struggled in last weekend's followup tourney in Victoria.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp struggled in his second PGA Tour Canada event, finishing 76th overall at last weekend’s Bayview Place Island Savings Open.

The four round tournament was played Thursday through Sunday at the Uplands Golf Club in Victoria.

Clapp, an instructor at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, was good enough at the start.

He carded a one-under-par 71 in round one and a five-under-par 67 in round two, though he barely survived the cut.

His game slipped in the third and fourth rounds, with back to back one-over-par 73s. An uneven final day saw him net birdies on the seventh, 12th and 16 holes.

But he bogied four others and hurt himself badly with a double-bogey on the 16th hole.

All told, Clapp finished 16 strokes behind the tournament winner, American Josh Persons.

Clapp has a couple weeks to think about it before getting back in the saddle.

The Syncrude Boreal Open is the next tour stop, going June 19-22 in Fort McMurray.

The total prize purse is $150,000.

Clapp made his PGA Canada Tour debut in sparkling style at the PC Financial Open, finishing in a tie for second at the Point Grey Golf and Country Club.

Despite last weekend’s struggles, he is still fifth on the tour’s money list at $13,530.
