Clapp bounces back at Players Cup tourney

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp took a positive step forward in his latest PGA Tour Canada outing.

After missing the cut in his last two events, the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club instructor found his way into the top 50 at the Players Cup tournament, held Thursday through Sunday at the Pine Ridge Golf Course in Winnipeg, MB.

Clapp tied for 46th overall with a four-round score of 289, 14 strokes behind the tournament winner, American Timothy Madigan.

Clapp started with an one-over-par 72 in the opening round, including an eagle on the 12th hole and a birdie on the fourth.

He did the same in round two, balancing a double-bogy on the fourth hole with birdies on the second, third, 12th and 13th holes.

With a two-day total of 144, Clapp narrowly missed the cut line. American Charlie Winegardner shot a two-day total of 143 and did not continue.

The third round was Clapp’s best as he fired a two-under-par 69 that included four birdies.

But the fourth and final round was his worst. Clapp bogeyed eight of the 18 holes, struggling to a five-over-par 76.

Still, overall a step in the right direction as he prepares for the next tournament. The Staal Foundation Open takes place at this weekend at the Whitewater Golf Course in Thunder Bay, ON.
