Top 50 finish for Clapp

Chilliwack golfer Brad Clapp has made the cut in four straight PGA Tour Canada events as he looks to finish the season strong.

Brad Clapp enjoyed a solid weekend in Ottawa, finishing in a tie for 47th at the National Capital Open to Support our Troops.

The four-round PGA Tour Canada event was held at the Hylands Golf Club.

Clapp finished five under par, 15 shots off the pace set by the winner, American Sam Ryder.

The Chilliwack Golf Club instructor opened last Thursday with a three-under-par 68 that included four birdies.

He had six birdies in Friday’s second round, but double bogeys on the 10th and 11th holes left him just one under for the day.

He had no trouble clearing the cut line and finished with rounds of 70 and 71 to pocket $627.81.

After missing the cut in three of his first four tournaments this year, Clapp’s now survived the cut in four straight.

Four events remain on the 2015 schedule.

Clapp will be in Kingston, ON., this weekend for the Great Waterway Classic.

Following stops in Peterborough, ON., and Ben Eoin, NS., the season wraps up Sept. 17-20 with the Freedom 55 Financial Championship in London, On.
