Kevin Chappell answered his opening 66 at the Wells Fargo Championship with a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in today's second round.
All things considered, this was a dreadful day. Chappell manufactured 14 scoring opportunities and connected for three birdies, but he also squared four bogeys, including a three-putt at the par-3 17th hole. At 5-under 139, he's only three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but today's disappointment is an example of why he's struggled all season. Chappell entered the week ranked 151st in birdies-or-better conversion percentage. May 15 - 1:56 PM

Kevin Chappell toured Quail Hollow Club in 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, parking it one stroke off Robert Streb's overnight lead.

Chappell is a distant 140th in the FedExCup standings, but with three top 20s among just five paydays, he's 122nd on the money list and currently projected to retain fully exempt status. The problem is that this is a talking point in mid-May. So, it's a welcome surprise to see him flourish on the tough track in Charlotte. He went 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey and picked off an eagle-3 and five birdies. Chappell's eagle came courtesy of a 12-yard hole-out from in front of the green at the par-5 seventh hole. His longest birdie measured 16'5" at the par-4 14th, but he also poured in pair of par saves from 11-14 feet.

Kevin Chappell makes his way back to TPC Sawgrass for this week's PLAYERS.

Chappell will be making his fifth start at this event. His T26 last year is the best on his resume with his previous three appearances at THE PLAYERS going for T68 or worse. Chappell joined the fraternity known as fatherhood last month but he's still trying to round his game into shape. His talent is undeniable but it's best to take the wait-and-see approach before reinvesting as he's missed cuts in five of his last six starts.

Kevin Chappell toured TPC San Antonio in 1-over-par 38-35=73 in today's opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Chappell is 2-for-4 on this course with a T2 in 2011 and a T15 in 2013, so he knows his way around. And now he can chalk up some valuable experience in tough scoring conditions today. Despite just seven greens in regulation, he limited the damage to four bogeys against one birdie. That was his slate through 15 holes. After a par at the par-3 16th, he chipped in for eagle from 18 yards at the par-4 17th. After a final par at the par-5 18th, Chappell landed just one stroke in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 6.251.

Kevin Chappell readies for his fourth stop at the Arnold Palmer Invitational later this week.

Chappell has played well at Bay Hill Club and Lodge over the years, surrounding a missed cut in 2013 with a T24 in 2012 and a T14 last year. That's not a big surprise, as he is known a ball-strker and Bay Hill offers plenty of punishment for wayward shots. It is worth nothing that he has missed three of his last four cuts, with a T18 at Pebble Beach the only bright spot of that run.

Kevin Chappell spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 at Pebble Beach Golf Links in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am to claim an early clubhouse lead at 14-under 201.

Chappell was off and running with a 20'6" eagle on the par-4 second hole, and added an 11-foot birdie on the par-4 eighth before suffering his lone bogey of the day at the par-4 ninth hole. His back nine included four birdies, highlighted by a 19'9" effort on the par-4 16th. The UCLA Bruin is often considered to be one of the better players on the PGA TOUR without a win. A solid final round on Sunday at Pebble Beach could change that.

Kevin Chappell signed for a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to join a growing group at 8-under 205.

Three of Chappell's six birdies at TPC Scottsdale fell from between 12 and 22 feet, which is not at all is traditional calling card. The irons were solid, landing 15 GIR. This is his second consecutive 65, after opening his week with a 75 in his first round. He is one of many players occupying the front page of the leaderboard that has yet to win on the PGA TOUR.

Kevin Chappell readies for his fourth Waste Management Phoenix Open ranked 82nd in the FedExCup standings

Chappell has been dormant since his November T13 at the CIMB Classic. It was his second top 15 of the new season. With no play abroad during the holidays, some rust would not be out of the equation this week. After earning a career high of nine top 25s last season, Chappell looks poised for a big season and should be on a short list of breakout candidates.

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 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.
