Kevin Chappell ripped off a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 and scored 12 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.
Chappell tied for 14th in his only previous appearance in Reno, Nevada. That was in 2012, the first year that the Modified Stableford scoring system was employed. He circled six birdies today, three of which on the quartet of par 5s. Slotted 71st in the FedExCup standings on the shoulders of seven top 25s, he entered the tournament as a favorite even though he's never won a PGA TOUR event. Jul 31 - 3:13 PM

Kevin Chappell battled for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and is three back with 18 to play.

Chappell found himself 1-over through 13 holes, with a birdie and two bogeys on the card at that point, but rebounded to claim a 23'7" birdie at the par-4 14th and a 12'4" birdie at the par-5 17th. His 9-under 201 is three behind Billy Hurley III. Chappell will benefit from missing out on the pressure of playing in the final pairing on Sunday as he chases his first PGA TOUR title. He does not rank inside the top 20 in any major statistical category, so he's getting it done by scoring his ball.

Kevin Chappell spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 8-under 132 at the midpoint and sit one stroke off the very early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Chappell hit only 11 greens in regulation, but had little trouble saving par. He also circled five birdies, the longest of the conventional variety measuring 12'10" at the par-3 third. He also holed out twice for birdies from off greens, first from six yards at the par-4 fifth, and then again from 35 yards out in front of the green at the par-3 15th.

Kevin Chappell posted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

It was just four weeks ago that Chappell finally logged his first top 10 of the season with a T10 at Colonial. He then missed the cut and the Memorial, but sparked today's return to action with a six-yard birdie conversion from just off the putting surface at the par-4 10th hole. While he'd square two bogeys the rest of the way, he added five birdies, the longest at the last, from 20'1" at the par-4 ninth. He signed his card sitting four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Kevin Chappell faded to an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to remain at 6-under 274.

Chappell birdied each of his first three holes from 11'2", 14'10" and 20'5" to reach 9-under to start the day. Had he played the remaining 15 holes in even par, he would likely have found himself in a playoff with Adam Scott and Jason Dufner. It wasn't meant to be, has Chappell made a messy double bogey at the par-4 fifth, then traded two birdies for three bogeys the rest of the way. His breakthrough PGA TOUR victory will have to wait until another day.
May 25 - 5:23 PM

Kevin Chappell torched Colonial Country Club to the tune of a 7-under-par 29-34=63 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Chappell takes the early clubhouse lead at 6-under 204 with the leaders still almost two hours away from teeing off. He was holing birdies from everywhere, with three birdie putts dropping from outside of 20 feet to go with a 13-yard chip-in birdie from the rough on the par-4 third hole and a 15-yard eagle from out of the greenside bunker on the par-5 11th. All told, he circled six birdies and an eagle to just one bogey while landing 15 GIR. He's in an enviable position, as he now gets to sit back and watch to see if the Texas breezes wreak havoc on the afternoon tee times while he's safely in the clubhouse. He will try and convert this to his first PGA TOUR victory in Sunday's final round.
May 24 - 12:21 PM

Kevin Chappell turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

With six first-time winners in the last 12 PGA TOUR events, Chappell has risen among the ranks without a title, but he's in good position to make a run in Fort Worth. He went out in the third threesome off the first tee today and promptly birdied the first two holes, the second dropping in from 43'6" at the par 4. Chappell then three-putted the par-4 third from just 7'8" for bogey. He repeated the two birdie-one bogey theme on the back, his longest conversion measuring 16'4" for birdie at 12.
May 22 - 12:54 PM

Kevin Chappell spun a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to end the week at 7-under 281.

Chappell was hot early at Quail Hollow, checking off birdies on six of the first 14 holes. He couldn't finish, as he would end his day with back-to-back bogeys. Of his six birdies, only one was truly notable and occurred from 31'9" on the par-4 first. He looks to be a lock for a top-20 finish, and possible even a little better than that.
May 4 - 3:19 PM

Kevin Chappell returns to the Wells Fargo Championship for the fourth time in as many years.

Chappell's never done particularly well at Quail Hollow, missing the cut in his first trip before posting a T58 and a T80 in his next two. After offering hope for a breakout 2013-14 season following a solid 2013, he's hanging around the middle of the FedExCup pack at 86th in the standings. He has a history of showing up on hard courses, and wit the greens restored this course would qualify. That is to say, it wouldn't be a total shock if he puts it together this week.

Kevin Chappell readies for his third Shell Houston Open.

Chappell was in contention last year, posting four straight rounds in red numbers, finishing T6 when all was said and done. He is coming off a missed cut last week at the Valero Texas Open, his third missed cut of the season. Chappell has yet to miss cuts in back-to-back tournaments during the 2014 campaign, so don't expect last week to weigh too heavily on the youngster's performance at the SHO.
Apr 2 - 12:02 PM

Kevin Chappell has only played in the Valspar Championship on two occasions, and he returns this week to try and reverse some poor course history.

In his first two ventures to the Copperhead Course he tied for 70th in 2012 and missed the cut last year. While he's been consistently in the middle of the pack in 2013-14, missing just one cut in eight events, this doesn't have the makings of a soft landing spot. He's posted 2-over-par or worse in his last four rounds at Innisbrook.
Mar 10 - 9:58 PM

Kevin Chappell lit up Palmer Private at PGA West for a bogey-free 9-under-par 63 in the third round of the Humana Challenge, improving to 13-under 203 for the tournament.

That Chappell circled nine birdies and settled for nine other pars isn't a surprise to anyone who watched the final round of this event a year ago. He was on 59 watch for much of the finale before signing for a 62. This was his first time at the venue since, playing his first two days at La Quinta Country Club and Nicklaus Private at PGA West. Yahoo! gamers should absolutely insert him in the lineup for Sunday's finale at Palmer Private.
Jan 18 - 6:04 PM

Kevin Chappell’s name should be on everyone’s short list as a player to watch in terms of a breakthrough victory in 2013-14.

He came close in 2013, finishing alone in second at the Memorial to go with two other top 10s and a 45th finish in the FedExCup Playoff standings. His pedigree has always suggested big things dating back to his days at UCLA, and no one will be surprised if and when he steps into the winner’s circle this season. Three starts into his 2013-14 season, Chappell sits 54th in the FedExCup standings. One thing worth pointing out, he will likely make plenty of starts up until the day he wins a tournament. That adds to his value for gamers.

Kevin Chappell chased his opening 65 at The McGladrey Classic with a 2-under-par 32-36=68 to post 7-under 133 at the midpoint, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It was a challenging morning at Seaside give breezy conditions that are expected to linger all day, so it wouldn't be that surprising if his 36-hole lead holds. Chappell split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation in the second round. While he went just 2-for-4 in scrambling (en route to one bogey and a double), and added a three-putt bogey at the par-4 first hole -- his 10th of the round -- he collected four birdies and an eagle to secure another red number. His eagle dropped in from 24 feet at the par-5 15th hole and his longest birdie measured 16 feet at 11, but the highlight of the round was a par save from 35'11" at the par-4 16th.

Kevin Chappell enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of The McGladrey Classic.

He's been one week on, one week off thus far to start the season, with a T46 at the Open before adding a T25 at the CIMB Classic. Today at Seaside where he was in the first threesome off the first tee in the afternoon wave, Chappell went 2-for-2 in scrambling and circled five birdies. His most notable conversion was a dandy. After finding the putting surface with his tee ball at the par-3 12th, he poured in the birdie attempt from 56'2". He'd go on to sign his card sitting two strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.
