Kevin Chappell got off to a strong start during the Fall Series, and currently sits in the 53rd spot of the FedExCup standings.
Chappell teed it up just three times over the fall, but made the most of those tee times. After a missed cut to open the season, he rattled off three rounds of 67 or better at the McGladrey to finish T8. The UCLA product wasn't done yet, as he came back the following week with a T13 at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia. Chappell is just 28 years of age, and is about to enter the prime years of his career.

Kevin Chappell settled for a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in his third round of the CIMB Classic.

He was cruising through 11 holes in Kuala Lumpur today, sitting bogey-free 4-under. Then the tournament's third weather delay in as many days occurred. Alas, it stripped Chappel of his scoring ability as he closed in birdie-free 2-over with two bogeys, including a sloppy 6 at the last where he muffed a chip just of the green. At 9-under 207, he's three strokes off the pace of the 54-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

The second round of the CIMB Classic was suspended for inclement weather at 1:33 p.m. local time (1:33 a.m. ET). UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 3:30 p.m. local time.

Here we go again, not that we're surprised. Yesterday's timing stranded 50 golfers for a couple of hours. Today's has 38 getting carted off to wait it out. All have completed at least 12 holes. Kevin Chappell snuck into the clubhouse with his round completed, however. He carded a 5-under-par 33-35=68 with six birdies against two bogeys. According to PGA TOUR Media's Twitter page, Chappell "assessed himself a one-stroke penalty for picking up his ball before marking it." It occurred in the fairway on the par-4 16th hole where he swallowed bogey. So, tacked onto an opening 69, he's 7-under 139 at the midpoint, just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Kevin Chappell painted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 30-35=65 in his final round of The McGladrey Classic to post 11-under 269, good for sole possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening the tournament with 67s, Chappell shot himself in the foot on Saturday with a 70. So, at least he kept his chin up and made noise today. He went 3-for-3 in scrambling and did all of his damage going out with an eagle-3 and three birdies before the turn. The eagle wasn't conventional by any means as he sailed his approach into the par-5 seventh well left of the green. However, from the intermediate rough, Chappell holed his third from 36 yards. His longest birdies measured 16'8" and 14 feet at Nos. 5 and 9, respectively. After a missed cut in Vegas last week ended a consecutive cuts made streak at nine, he'll take his new streak to this week's CIMB Classic where he shared 25th place last year.

Kevin Chappell has turned in a pair of 3-under-par 67s at The McGladrey Classic and sits two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Chappell is 9-for-10 in scrambling this week, but he's squared four bogeys thanks to a trio of three-putts, including two today. His propensity to leak oil on the greens is well-documented. So far this week, he's compensated with five birdies in each round. Today's set featured a roll from 12'4" at the par-4 11th, but his longest conversion measured 34 feet for par at the par-4 second.

Kevin Chappell returns to The McGladrey Classic for his third look at Sea Island Resort’s Seaside Course.

Chappell is looking to bounce back after a missed cut in his season opener at the Frys.com Open. A very disappointing start to the campaign after taking a step forward last year in terms of consistency, missing just six cuts in 28 events. Both of Chappell's starts at Seaside have yielded top 45s, thanks to five red numbers in eight rounds. Gamers should expect Chappell to rebound this week and add another top 45 to his McGladrey resume.

Kevin Chappell crafted a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the BMW Championship and concludes his week at 5-under 275.

Chappell circled six birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Cherry Hills CC, with five of those birdies coming in a six-hole binge beginning with the par-4 seventh hole. Three of his birdies fell from longer than 14 feet, highlighted by a 34'4" effort on the par-3 12th. While this was a nice week for the UCLA Bruin, he began his week 61st in the FedExCup standings and won't come close to cracking the top 30 for inclusion into the TOUR Championship. His season ends here.

Kevin Chappell signed for a 2-under-par 33-35=68 following his opening round of the BMW Championship.

Chappell has been a regular on the early leaderboards lately. This is his fourth consecutive sub-70 to open a tournament and eighth in his last 11 starts. Today at Cherry Hills, he striped only six (of 14) fairways, but landed 12 greens in regulation and picked off four birdies. The set featured conversions from 18'1" and 19'2" at the 11th and 16th holes, respectively. He also poured in a 16-footer for par at the par-3 eighth, the penultimate of his round. Chappell arrived in Colorado at 61st in the FedExCup standings. He's currently one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Kevin Chappell submitted a 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and settled three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Chappell tied for 22nd place at TPC Boston last year, but he usually sets up as a valuable grinder on harder tracks. Today, he went 5-for-6 in scrambling, settling for a 6 at the par-5 second hole. Elsewhere he picked off four birdies, but his only notable conversion dropped for par from 14'2" at the par-3 third where his tee ball landed 57-and-a-half feet from the cup. This is the fifth time in Chappell's last six starts that he's gone sub-70 in a first round, but none of those yielded a top 10. After opening 68-67 at least week's Barclays, he faded to finish T30 and landed at 61st in the FedExCup standings.

Kevin Chappell tied for 22nd place at the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship and returns to TPC Boston for this week's edition.

Chappell is rounding into form at the perfect time, with top 35s in four of his last five events, including three top 20s in that stretch. His hot streak has catapulted him up to his current position of 61st in the FedExCup standings. In his last five stroke-play events, he's posted sub-70 rounds in 12-of-20 rounds. With a top 25 to his name at TPC Boston combined with great form, Chappell is an interesting sleeper for gamers to consider this week.

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.

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.
Aug 9 - 5:04 PM

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.
