Slow finish follows fast start for PGA golfer

Chilliwack's Brad Clapp was in title contention through two rounds at the Staal Foundation Open.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp cleared the cut at a second straight PGA Tour Canada tournament, finishing in a tie for 48th at the Staal Foundation Open.

The event was held over four days last weekend at the Whitewater Golf Club in Thunder Bay, ON.

Clapp’s best rounds were his early rounds.

He carded a 68 in Thursday’s opener and a 69 on day two, leaving him seven under par and four strokes clear of the -3 cut line.

But Clapp faded from contention in the last two rounds, scoring a 73 Saturday and a 74 Sunday to finish four under par.

That left him 14 strokes off the pace set by tournament winner J.J. Spaun.

Clapp collected $621.25 for the effort and has nearly two full weeks to prepare for the next event, which brings him closer to home.

The ATB Financial Classic will be held July 30-Aug. 2 at the Links of Glen Eagles in Calgary.
