Kevin Chappell settled for an even-par 33-38=71 in the third round of The Barclays and enters the final round tied for fifth at 7-under 206.
Chappell jumped into the fray early in his lap around Ridgewood CC, gathering three birdies on his first five holes. It would be a bit of a mess from there, as his final 13 holes were marred by a trio of bogeys and 10 pars. The highlight came on the par-3 second hole, finding the bottom of the cup from birdie from 17'7". He is just two off the lead as he searches for his breakthrough PGA TOUR title. Aug 23 - 5:43 PM

Kevin Chappell crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-35=67 in his second round of The Barclays to post 7-under 135 at the break, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Seeing that he went out in the second threesome off the first hole at Ridgewood today, his advantage won't hold, but today's effort lays the foundation for a big weekend. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and circled four birdies, none of which on the trio of par 5s. Chappell's longest conversion measured 18'4" for birdie at the par-3 second, but he didn't miss inside 10 feet all day. Like many in the field of 122, the fourth-year PGA TOUR member is still chasing his first PGA TOUR victory.

Kevin Chappell signed for a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the PGA Championship and moves to 7-under 206.

Chappell's highlights were few, as his longest of four birdies at Valhalla GC was a 10'11" roll at the par-4 first. He put on a stripe show, splitting 13 of 14 fairways and landing an impressive 15 GIR. The bigger story is that the 18-hole co-leader moved back into contention for his first PGA TOUR and major championship triumph after suffering a 3-over 74 on Friday. If he can replicate his first-round 65 or third-round 67 on Sunday, he stands a realistic chance of winning. If he comes up just short, expect him to rue Friday's 74.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Chappell followed his opening 65 at the PGA Championship with a 3-over-par 38-36=74 to post 3-under 139 at the halfway point.

Chappell spent all of his fortune in his bogey-free opener. On Friday, he hit 11 greens in regulation and converted just once for birdie, and that needed to drop from 24'1" at the par-5 seventh hole. Elsewhere, he squared two bogeys and a double before settling six strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Aug 9 - 12:08 AM

Kevin Chappell crafted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of the 96th PGA Championship to grab a share of the clubhouse lead with Lee Westwood.

Fresh off a disappointing T34 in Reno where he opened with 12 points, Chappell made big-time amends today. He missed only four greens in regulation and walked off with a strokes gained-putting clip in the vicinity of 3.255. He buried four birdies, including rolls from 26'3", 15'11" and 17'11" at Nos. 4, 9 and 13, respectively, but the highlight occurred at the par-5 10th. After failing to find the short grass with his first two shot, Chappell landed his third in a greenside bunker. Undeterred, he promptly holed out for birdie from 26 yards away.
Aug 7 - 1:51 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 5:52 PM

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.
Jul 4 - 12:00 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 1:16 PM

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.
