Kevin Chappell is at TPC River Highlands for his third appearance in the Travelers Championship.
The 30-year-old ranks second-highest in the FedExCup standings (10th) of those without a win, 110 points behind Phil Mickelson. He has three runner-up finishes in 22 starts, most recently, solo second at THE PLAYERS. Since then, the Californian is scuffling a bit, missing three cuts in seven starts, and three finishes outside the top 40. He has however, tossed in a T3 at the WGC-Bridgestone. This is his third attempt at cashing a check at the Travelers, missing the cut in 2011 and 2014. In those four rounds, his first-round scoring average at the par-70 layout is 66.50, but his second-round average is 72.50. Aug 3 - 7:03 PM

Kevin Chappell crushed the front nine at Firestone Country Club en route to a 3-under-par 30-37=67 during the finale at this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, ending the week at 3-under 277.

Chappell fired out of the gates with an 18'1" eagle roll at the par-5 second hole and backed it up by wedging his 135-yard approach to 3'2" at the par-4 third hole. After tapping that in for birdie, he saved par from 19'9" and 9'2" at the par-4 fourth and par-3 fifth, respectively. After that, the UCLA product holed out from the rough (22'1") for birdie at the par-3 seventh hole and then sank two putts from just under seven feet. It looked like it may have finally been his day, at that point, but he stumbled after the turn, trading three bogeys with just one birdie. This will go in the books as a top-5 finish, his fifth of the season. A very strong WGC debut for Chappell.
Jul 3 - 5:24 PM

Kevin Chappell kept his name in the mix with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 during round three of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, totaling even-par 210 on the week.

Chappell had a balanced attack today, gaining 0.917 strokes tee-to-green and 1.285 strokes putting. Two of his notable putts were to save par, first from 8'11" at No. 13 and then from 10'4" at 14. On the week, he currently ranks inside the top 10 in fairways hit and greens in regulation. The UCLA product is making his WGC debut this week but finds himself in great position to earn his sixth top 10 of the season, currently T12 on the live leaderboard.
Jul 2 - 4:37 PM

Kevin Chappell signed for a 2-under-par 35-34=69 after the third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the three-quarter mark on 5-under 208, up 10 spots to T15 with play still in progress.

The 29-year-old improved to a perfect 6-for-6 at the Quicken Loans with opening rounds of 70-69. His best finish thus far is T18 last year at Robert Trent Jones GC. The UCLA product began the third round on 3-under (T25) and erased a lone bogey at the par-4 fourth (failed sand save) with birdies at Nos. 6, 9 and 12. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and a week-low 13 greens in regulation, posting a -0.779 in SG: Around-the-Green but salvaged the round with 2.069 in SG: Putting. Chappell's improvement with the flat stick is encouraging after losing 5.269 in SGP over the first two rounds. His split included a 10-footer at the par-4 12th and a 20'4" roll on the par-5 ninth and also holed three par putts from between six and nine feet.

A total of 70 players made the cut on 1-over 141 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational but at 2-over 68-74=142, Kevin Chappell was not among them.

Chappell posted his 142 aggregate out of the morning wave on Friday, while the entire PM wave was stranded due to darkness. The projected cut at that time was 1-over 141. Sixty (of 61) PMers returned on Saturday and the projected held true so the 29-year-old's birdie-less 4-over 74 in R2 sealed his fate earlier than he may have thought. This is his fifth MC of the season in 16 starts and first since the Houston Open. Other notables with early exits include: 142- Chez Reavie; Jerry Kelly ... 143- 2013 champ Boo Weekley; Jim Furyk; Bryson DeChambeau; Freddie Jacobson ... 144- Will Wilcox; Keegan Bradley; Louis Oosthuizen ... 145- John Senden ... 147- Patton Kizzire; Stewart Cink ... 148- Smylie Kaufman ... 150- Ian Poulter.

Kevin Chappell rallied for a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to post 11-under 277, up four on the leaderboard to solo second, four shots shy of champion and overnight leader Jason Day.

Chappell had a chance for one better and a birdie-birdie-birdie finish, but missed from 9'9" on the 72nd hole, "settling" for a bogey-free back-nine 32. In the end, it didn't matter, other than the margin. On his first half, he outpaced book-end birdies at Nos. 1 and 9 with bogeys on 3, 4 and 7 to turn 1-over. The 29-year-old, who finished solo second twice prior this season -- at The RSM and the Arnold Palmer (to Day) -- eagled the par-5 11th with a 36-yard hole-out for his third eagle of the week to lead in that stat. In addition to his third runner-up of the season on 15 starts, it's his fifth in 155 career events and his best at THE PLAYERS in his sixth attempt.
May 15 - 6:46 PM

Kevin Chappell stalled out to a 2-under-par 31-39=70 in the third round of THE PLAYERS for a 54-hole total of 8-under 208, up 13 on the live leaderboard to T7.

In round 2, Chappell concluded with five straight birdies to cap an inward 29. He opened his third frame with birdie and eagle-3, later adding circles at six and nine for bogey-free 31. Mathematicians will tell you that's 12-under 60 for those 18 holes. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, as the 29-year-old came home in 3-over 39, with four bogeys and a walk-off double bogey-6 at 18 erasing his second eagle-3 of the round at the 16th, this one a hole-out from 66'7" away in the rough, and birdie-3 at the 12th. Just prior to the double at 18, Chappell missed birdie from 45 inches at the par-3 17th.
May 14 - 5:50 PM

Kevin Chappell was in fear of missing the cut before tearing up the back nine en route to a 5-under-par 38-29=67, reaching a two-day total of 6-under 138.

Chappell supporters were likely counting this week as a missed cut after three bogeys in his opening eight holes dropped him to 2-over on the week. From there, he managed to birdie eight of his last 10 holes to not only make the cut, but make it with ease. His seven-birdie effort on the closing nine was just the third time a golfer has carded a sub-30 round there, with the other two being Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy (both also this week). Regardless of the fire set on the back nine, Chappell gained just 0.259 strokes with the flat stick, letting us know just how dialed in his was with his approach game. Chappell's best PLAYERS finish is a T26 in 2014, but has a good chance of besting that if he can build some momentum from the closing 10 holes today.
May 13 - 8:32 PM

Kevin Chappell kicked off his week at the Wells Fargo Championship with a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to sit just two strokes off the co-leaders through one round of play.

Chappell arrived in fantastic form, and he kept the momentum rolling today with 13 greens hit and three putts drained from outside 12 feet. The longest was a 23'11" birdie bomb on the par-4 16th hole. The plethora of mid-to-long range conversions offset his 4'5" birdie miss at the par-4 first, walking off the course with 2.122 strokes gained putting. Chappell has finished top 10 in three of his last four starts entering the week, and he's off to the races, yet again.
May 5 - 7:10 PM

Kevin Chappell hung on for a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to post 9-under 279, up 14 places on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Chappell finished in a five-way T4, three back of champion Charley Hoffman.

Chappell has four career runner-up finishes in 152 starts, including two this season -- most recently solo second at the Arnold Palmer. One of those career marks was set here in 2011 and is his only top 10 in six previous visits. The 29-year-old began the finale on 5-under (T17), six back of 54-hole leader Ricky Barnes. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR. Chappell raced out with a bogey-free 4-under 32 on his first half, but stalled out with a one-birdie one-bogey home half for a somewhat disappointing finish.
Apr 24 - 5:00 PM

Kevin Chappell handed in a 1-under-par 36-34=70 after the final round of the RBC Heritage to post 3-under 281, up four spots on the leaderboard into a five-way T9.

The 29-year-old co-led thru 36 holes with two others but a 75 in R3 knocked him out. It was the second time this season that he's led/co-led on TOUR, leading the RSM in Nov. after 36 holes but eventually finishing a career-tying-best solo second. Chappell rebounded with a four-birdie three-bogey effort on Sunday for his first top 10 at Harbour Town in his fourth visit, and his third of the season on 12 events. It's also his second top 10 in his last three starts, posting a solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Apr 17 - 7:47 PM

Overnight tri-leader Kevin Chappell collapsed to a 4-over-par 35-40=75 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to post 2-under 211, down 12 on the leaderboard to T13, a distant five in arrears to 54-hole leader Luke Donald.

Chappell co-led by one thru 36 holes with playing competitor Jason Day and Charley Hoffman. It was the second time this season that he's led/co-led on TOUR, leading the RSM in Nov. after 36 holes but eventually finishing a career-tying-best solo second. Playing out of the final twosome with Day, who shot 79, the 29-year-old was cruising along at 2-under on his round thru 11 holes, erasing bogey at nine with birdies at Nos. 5, 8 and 11 -- and then the bottom fell out. He toured his final seven holes in birdie-less 6-over, squaring bogeys on 12 and 13, and eating double bogeys on the par-5 15th and the par-4 18th.
Apr 16 - 7:12 PM

Kevin Chappell fired a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during the second round of the RBC Heritage to grab the early clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

The UCLA product started on the back nine, squaring a bogey on the par-4 11th thanks to a par-saving miss from 5'6". He bounced back with three straight putts made from outside six feet. The longest coming from 12-feet at the par-4 13th to save par. The pace really picked up as he made the turn, circling birdies at the first, second, and fourth holes. The clutch par-saving putts are one reason why his strokes gained putting sits at ninth in the field on the live leaderboard. This round may look better and better as the day progresses as the weather conditions are only projected to get tougher.
Apr 15 - 12:09 PM

Kevin Chappell styled a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the opening round of this week's RBC Heritage.

Chappell got the flat stick working early and often today. He rattled in birdie putts from 5'9" and 9'6" on the par-3 fourth and par-5 fifth holes, respectively. He saved par from outside five feet twice before adding another birdie on hole No. 9. After making the turn, Chappell fired in birdies at the par-4 11th and 12th holes, both from outside 32 feet, totaling 77'2". The UCLA product walked off the course gaining 2.469 strokes with the flat stick. Chappell's putter will likely regress as the week goes on, but this is a great opening effort to put him into contention.
Apr 14 - 4:37 PM

Kevin Chappell chased 68-68-67 with a final-round 3-under-par 34-35=69 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a 72-hole aggregate of 16-under 272, but came up one shy of champion Jason Day for solo second.

The 29-year-old was playing one twosome ahead of the eventual champ and bogeyed the par-4 18th, opening the door for Day, who birdied the par-3 17th and conjured a sand save on the 72nd hole for the win. Chappell began his final frame two adrift of Day, and was chasing his first title in his 150th career start. He held the lead on a couple of occasions on Sunday, including a two-shot margin after birdies on Nos. 3, 6 and 8, before retreating one with bogey on the ninth to turn 2-under. The UCLA product birdied the par-4 13th and the par-5 16th to pull one clear with two-to-play. He saved par from the sand on the 17th, but an errant tee shot on the 18th forced a layup, eventually missing his par putt from 25'1". This is Chappell's fourth career runner-up finish and second this season (RSM).
