Kevin Chappell carded a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.
He went out with the first threesome off the first tee in today's late draw at TPC Boston and promptly opened birdie-birdie. The tail of that tandem measured 11'6". He added three birdies, the longest from 13'8" at the par-3 eighth hole. Chappell also went 3-for-3 in scrambling but squared a three-putt bogey from 35-and-a-half feet at the par-4 ninth. At last check, he ranked inside the top 15 in both strokes-gained stats. He started the week slotted 68th in the FedExCup standings, so the pressure will remain applied to play well on the weekend.

Kevin Chappell turns his attention to the par-71 TPC Boston in Norton, Massachusetts, for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

After a missed cut in his 2011 DB Championship debut, Chappell was solo third after 54 holes in the 2013 edition but was lapped by a big portion of the field with a final-round, even-par 71, eventually finishing T22. It's his personal best in three appearances, chasing the T22 with a T50 last year on rounds of 68-73-68-74. The 29-year-old enters the second leg of the Playoffs 68th in the FedExCup standings having cashed in his last three events and 10 of his last 11, including a T24 at last week's Barclays, his six top-25 finish during this span.

Kevin Chappell makes his fifth appearance at The Barclays, second at Plainfield Country Club, and enters the FedExCup Playoffs ranked 91st in the standings.

At the 2014 Barclays (Ridgewood CC), Chappell was T3 after 36 holes and T4 after 54, fading to 3-over 74 in the finale to place T30. He was third after 54 holes in 2013 (Liberty National) following a 9-under 62 in the third round, but ballooned to 5-over 76 in the final round to post T15. That was his best finish in four appearances in the tournament. This season, Chappell is 14-for-23 with eight top 25s, two for top 10s, including a T8 at the John Deere in mid-July after playing the weekend 11-under (64-67). The 29-year-old co-lead the Quicken Loans National after 54 holes earlier this month before cratering to T18 with 6-over 77 in the final round. He chased the QLN with a T43 at the PGA Championship in his latest start.

Kevin Chappell posted 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the PGA Championship, reaching the midpoint in 3-under 141.

The prevailing notion today is that the late-early draw will get the worse of the wind, but with inclement weather possible this afternoon, continue to hold your breath if you're among that contingent. Still, Chappell will happily accept his spot two strokes off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. He split only five (of 14) fairways but managed 12 greens in regulation. That yielded an eagle-3 from 12'9" at the par-5 16th hole and four birdies, including conversions from 27'7" and 14'10" at Nos. 17 and 1, respectively. He squared two bogeys but salvaged a third with a par save from 15'9" at the challenging par-4 18th.
Aug 14 - 1:20 PM

Overnight co-leader Kevin Chappell ballooned to a 6-over-par 36-41=77 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to conclude at 8-under 276 and a T18-finish.

Chappell shared the 54-hole lead with eventual champ and playing partner Troy Merritt. Each man was vying for their first PGA TOUR title and they held a one-stroke advantage over Rickie Fowler to begin the day. While Merritt would go on to win, Chappell went the other way, overshadowing three birdies, with five bogeys and two doubles. If the beginning was any indication, then Chappell's fate was sealed early, opening in back-to-back bogeys. However, he bounced back with birdies on four and five, each from inside five feet. He exchanged bogey at six with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 eighth to turn even. The 29-year-old opened with two pars after the break, but found water off the tee at 12, eventually squaring double. He swallowed another double at 14 and added consecutive bogeys at 15 and 16. In total, Chappell posted three penalties on a birdie-less inward half to fall off the map. His T18 was his first top 25 at the QLN in five tries.
Aug 2 - 8:07 PM

Kevin Chappell signed for a 4-under-par 34-33=67 after today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to join the 54-hole lead of Troy Merritt at 14-under 199.

Playing in the penultimate pairing, Chappell began Moving Day at 10-under (T2) and just one shot back of 36-hole leader Ryo Ishikawa. On his round, he circled five birdies to camouflage a lone bogey at the par-3 16th, three-putting from 30 feet nine inches. The 29-year-old's set featured all five conversions from inside 10 feet, including a long of 9'2" at the par-4 10th. After circling birdie at 17, he had a chance from 8'4" at the last for the birdie-birdie finish and outright lead, but missed left. Chappell has a pair of T8s on 21 starts to his season, the latest coming at the John Deere Classic in mid-July. He's yet to win on the PGA TOUR in 135 career starts.
Aug 1 - 5:49 PM

Kevin Chappell carded a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 10-under 132 at the midpoint.

At the time he signed his card, he held a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Rickie Fowler, but Ryo Ishikawa has since gone one lower. On the day, Chappell found 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. He failed to salvage par twice and squared two bogeys, but answered with five birdies, the longest stretching 18'5" at the par-4 third hole. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 7.082.
Jul 31 - 6:29 PM

Kevin Chappell crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-33=64 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Chappell striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation en route to seven birdies at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club today. He poured in seven birdies, including looks from 41'1" and 12 feet at Nos. 18 and 2, respectively. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 5.624. Today's aggregate equals his season low; it's the third occurrence.
Jul 30 - 4:04 PM

Kevin Chappell finished off his third John Deere Classic with a 4-under-par 31-36=67 to wrap up at 16-under 268, four swings back of champion Jordan Spieth.

Chappell began the final round at 12-under (T9) and five strokes back of Spieth. In the end, he made up one shot and moved up one place to a four-way tie for eighth. Chappell reached 16-under with a bogey-free, front side that included four birdies at Nos. 2, 4, 5 and 9 to turn in 4-under. He added two more circles on 12 and 14, but silenced them with bogeys at 11 and 15. In total, it was an impressive week for the 29-year-old finishing the tournament second in strokes gained: putting and third in putts per GIR. The flat stick paced him to his second top 10 on the season (20 starts) matching his T8 at the McGladrey Classic all the way back in October of the wraparound season. His previous-best at the Deere was T45 in 2012 (T52/2014).
Jul 12 - 8:48 PM

Kevin Chappell spun a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to put 12-under 201 up on the board, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Chappell began the day at 5-under (T42) and seven shots off the pace of the 54-hole leader Justin Thomas. On his card, he smothered one bogey, at the par-4 fourth, with six birdies and an eagle en route to the low round of the day thus far. Chappell striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, circling birdies at Nos. 3, 6, 8, 10, 13 and 18. The 29-year-old, 100th in the FedExCup standings, navigated the 569-yard par-5 17th in two blows to 6'3" and drained the putt for the eagle-3. His 34'7" roll at the par-4 finisher put the cap on an eagle-birdie finish and he joined the leaders on the course at 12-under, up 41 spots on the live leaderboard.
Jul 11 - 4:59 PM

Kevin Chappell added a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to touch 8-under 132 at the midpoint and share the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's the fourth to wedge his way atop the leaderboard from the late-early draw, and he's the third non-winner among the bunch. This is Chappell's 133rd PGA TOUR start. He covered two bogeys with five birdies during today's lap around The Old White TPC. His only notable conversion dropped in from 12'2" at the par-4 14th hole.
Jul 3 - 2:12 PM

Kevin Chappell recorded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing three shots off the overnight lead.

Chappell has climbed 37 spots to 103rd in the FedExCup standings since connecting five paydays dating back to the Wells Fargo Championship. Three were the result of top 25s, so he's been dialing in. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling at The Old White TPC today and corralled five birdies, including respective conversions from 19'10", 24'7" and 14'1" at Nos. 4, 16 and 18. Chappell's longest par save found the target from 13'5" at the 11th hole where he missed the fairway and green on the slight dogleg-left par 4. He was the last of 11 golfers to complete 18 holes inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.
Jul 2 - 6:48 PM

Kevin Chappell has decided not to compete in this week's Travelers Championship.

He tied for 46th at the grind at Chambers Bay. Chappell rose to 98th in the FedExCup standings. He's cashed in five straight starts.
Jun 22 - 12:09 PM

Kevin Chappell shot 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's opening round of the U.S. Open.

As one of the last four in the field as an alternate, Chappell had everything to gain in his fourth appearance in this tournament. While he squared three bogeys, he enjoyed a run of four birdies over a six-hole stretch mid-round. Overall, he landed 13 greens in regulation and signed his card parked just one shot off the clubhouse lead.
Jun 18 - 4:35 PM

Kevin Chappell will compete in the 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

Chappell was first alternate at the loaded sectional qualifier in Columbus a week ago today. He was one of two eliminated in a five-way playoff to determine 15 exemptions. Veteran gamers are already aware of the fact that the non-winner has a sterling record in this tournament, but this will be his first start since a T32 at Merion in 2013. He made his U.S. Open debut at Congressional in 2011 and tied for third. The following year at Olympic Club, Chappell placed T10. Ball-striking has been his forte over the years, but the 28-year-old has regressed this season and sits 102nd in the FedExCup standings. However, he's picked up the pace of late, registering top 25s in three of his last four starts, including a T22 in Memphis on Sunday.
