2015 Final 9A second molecule

Hi, the answer to the second molecule in 9A of the 2015 final is 1-(3-chlorocycloheptyl)-2-methylpronan-2-ol and I was wondering why the cycloheptane is treated as a substituent here. Is it because the alcohol as the functional group takes priority even though it's on the shorter chain? Thank you!
