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).

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.

Going out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at TPC Southwind today, Kevin Chappell ripped off a 6-under-par 29-35=64 in his second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 5-under 135, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

As his outward nine suggests, the 28-year-old wasted no time is capitalizing on early scoring opportunities this morning. He buried birdies on six of his first seven holes, three from outside 13 feet. Chappell then converted a par try from 10'8" at the par-4 17th. He added his seventh and final birdie of the round with a zero-putt eight-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 first. He went 1-for-2 in scrambling with a bogey at the par-4 fifth, but still signed for what is his lowest of 50 rounds this season.

Kevin Chappell makes his FedEx St. Jude Classic debut this week in Memphis, Tennessee.

Chappell is 109th in the FedExCup standings with a season that features eight missed cuts on 16 starts and just one top 10 (T8, McGladrey Classic). In total, he's batting .500 in 2014-15, with eight paydays and four top 25s, including a T16 at the Wells Fargo Championship and a T19 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. Toss in last week's T49 at the Memorial and he's had three consecutive weekends of action, the second such time that he's accomplished that task this season.
Jun 10 - 10:09 AM

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.
May 14 - 7:35 PM

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.
May 4 - 11:25 PM

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.
