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.

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.

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.

Kevin Chappell fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Open, moving to 9-under 204.

Chappell enters the season after a solid 2013 campaign, and his six birdies and 12 pars at CordeValle Golf Club prove that he's not planning to slow down in 2013-14. After a birdie-birdie start, he settled for pars on his next 10 holes before circling birdies on four of his last six holes to end the afternoon. The irons were the key, as he hit every GIR.

The BMW Championship has experienced periods of rain all morning at Conway Farms Golf Club, and at 10:00 a.m. CT play was finally suspended. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to restart at 1:30 p.m.

At the time of the delay, only four players had completed their rounds. Rory McIlroy, Kevin Chappell, Charley Hoffman and Scott Piercy will not be impacted by the delay, as they are in the clubhouse and finished. The down side to that is none of those four will move on to East Lake for the TOUR Championship.

Kevin Chappell will try and lock up a spot in the TOUR Championship at this week's BMW Championship.

Chappell finished 2012 as the 125th man on the money list, keeping his PGA TOUR card by the slimmest of margins. With T15 at Liberty National and a T22 at TPC Boston, he's skating his way through the FedExCup Playoffs in the 33rd position. He currently ranks 37th in the all-around ranking, which is a good thing given we've never seen Conway Farms host a PGA TOUR event.

Kevin Chappell torched Liberty National Golf Club for a course-record 9-under-par 32-30=62 in the third round of The Barclays.

Chappell began his day on the 10th hole, chipping in for his first of nine birdies from 26 feet. He would add routine birdies on 16 and 17 before making the turn. That's when he really hit his stride, tacking on brides at the first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth holes, never suffering a blemish on the card. He found 15 GIR and gained over four strokes with the putter on the afternoon. When he polished off his round, he found himself in the clubhouse lead at 11-under 202.

Kevin Chappell signed for a 4-under-par 33-35=68 following his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

He hit just 12 greens in regulation, but suffered a lone bogey at the par-5 18th hole, his last of the day. His third into the green came to rest in the rough; from there, he couldn't get up and down. Prior to that, he circled five birdies, including a conversion from 10'4" at the 14th hole. Chappell also saved par at Nos. 4 and 8 from 12'10" and 18'9", respectively. He's three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Kevin Chappell enters the RBC Canadian Open having secured the cut in nine of his last 10 starts.

Chappell sweated out his PGA TOUR card at the end of 2012, but at 47th in the current FedExCup standings there will be no such drama this year. The highlight was a runner-up at the Memorial, but the consistency he's demonstrated this summer is the best of his career. There's no reason to think he won't cash a check at Glen Abbey.

Kevin Chappell birdied four of his last six holes to post a bogey-free 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Memorial, finishing alone in second at 10-under 278.

Chappell was treading water for his first 12 holes, but business picked up when he dropped a 20'1" birdie on the par-4 13th. He added an easy birdie on the par-5 15th after finding the green in two, then put some serious pressure on Matt Kuchar when he sunk a 19'4" birdie on the 17th. Chappell trailed by two entering the final hole and stuck his approach to the par-4 to 2'3", but Kuchar rolled in a birdie on top of him to end it. With is 2013-14 PGA TOUR card locked up, he now looks for more opportunities to close the door on his first win.

Kevin Chappell fired a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Memorial to assume the clubhouse lead at 6-under 210.

Chappell opened with four pars, then ran off a string of three consecutive birdies beginning with the par-5 fifth. He finished his opening nine with a pair of pars, then suffered his only blemish of the round at the par-5 11th that included a penalty off the tee. He added two more birdies coming to Muirfield Village's clubhouse. Each of his five birdies fell from inside nine feet, and he accomplished his steady round despite finding just 10 GIR.

At 9-under-par 69-66=135, Kevin Chappell was the first to establish the 36-hole clubhouse lead at THE PLAYERS.

Chappell has hit just 23 greens in regulation, but he's filled up the cup with an eagle and 12 birdies to offset five bogeys. He's played the par-5 11th hole in 3-under with a birdie from 20'9" on Thursday and an eagle conversion measuring just 10'10" today. Three other birdies found the cup from beyond 13 feet, and he poured in a par save from 12'8" at No. 5 in the second round. Four of Chappell's five paydays this year have gone for a top 25 -- three were top 15s -- so he's quite comfortable contending.
