CLAPP LEADS BY FIVE HEADING INTO FINAL ROUND
Courtenay, B.C. - (July 24, 2012) – Brad Clapp of Chilliwack Golf & Country Club continues his strong play as he takes a five shot lead into the final round of the Titleist/FootJoy PGA of BC Championship at Crown Isle while Maxwell sets a new competitive course record as he rockets up the leaderboard.
Clapp followed-up his opening round of 65 with a six-under par 66 on Tuesday, en route to another large leading heading into the final round of a tournament. In only his last four competitive PGA of BC tournament rounds, Clapp has shot an incredible 30-under par (63,64,65,66=258). Not too shabby considering the current PGA TOUR scoring record is 254, held by Tommy Armour III at the 2003 Valero Texas Open.
“I felt more in control of my game today than I did yesterday” says the Chilliwack native. “I scored better yesterday but felt that today was a much more complete round of golf”. Clapp had a rough start to the day after starting off two-over par through the first five holes. He later turned it around, going eight under through his last thirteen holes.
Not to be outdone, Kevin Maxwell of Olympic View Golf Club bolted up the leaderboard Tuesday, firing an 8-under par 64, breaking Clapp’s course record set less than twenty-four hours ago. Maxwell started off hot, making five birdies in the first six holes. The 30-year old is no stranger to Crown Isle as he grew up playing junior golf at the course.
Defending Champion Lindsay Bernakevitch of Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club continued his steady play, following up his opening round 70 with a four-under par 68. Bernakevitch sits alone in third place at six under par and will play alongside Clapp and Maxwell in tomorrow’s final group.
Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community Head Professional Jason Andrew shot his second consecutive 72, sitting at even par and in a tie for 12th place.
Final round tee times begin at 7:00am on Wednesday, while leaders will tee off at 10:00am.
