Reg Clarkson of Nelson came ever so close to tasting victory Thursday afternoon in Williams Lake at the BC Senior/Super-Senior Golf Championships.

After firing a three-under-par round of 68 Wednesday to put himself into contention, the Granite Pointe at Nelson Manager carded a four-over-par 75 to finish tied for fourth spot at the 54-hole event played the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club.

Andrew Pinette of Surrey carded an even-par round of 71 to finish the tournament at 212, four shots better than Mike Legg of Prince George.

Scott Humphreys of Kelowna took third spot with a 217 total followed by Clarkson at 218.

Mark Dupuy of Victoria also finished at 218.

After opening the tournament with a round of 75 Tuesday, Clarkson shot up the leaderboard with a three-under-par 68 Wednesday.

Clarkson did not record a bogey while earning birdies on the third, seventh and 13th holes.

Thursday, playing in second to last group, Clarkson dropped a shot after a bogey on the first hole.

He registered pars on the next 12 holes before finishing with bogeys on three of the next four holes to fall out of contention.
