At No. 28 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Kevin Chappell is the third highest-ranked player at this week's RSM Classic. UPDATE: At 4-under 64-74=138, Chappell missed the 36-hole cut by one.
In his fourth RSM appearance last year, the 30-year-old was the 36-hole leader by one (66-65), eventually finishing solo 2nd with 68-67, a distant six shots in arrears to champion Kevin Kisner. The year prior, he was T8 thru 36 holes (67-67), and finished T8 after rounds of 70-65. The year before that, Chappell was T2 thru 36 holes (65-68), plummeting to T32 following rounds of 74-70. He finished a career-best 8th in the FedExCup standings last season with FOUR runner-up finishes, including a playoff loss at the TOUR Championship where he was the ONLY player to record four sub-par rounds. So far this season, the UCLA product has posted a T45 at the no-cut CIMB and a T35 three weeks ago at the WGC-HSBC in his WGC debut. Wed, Nov 16, 2016 03:00:00 PM
