Wire-to-Wire for Roger Chapman

Wire-to-Wire for Roger Chapman

Roger Chapman bagged the Senior PGA Championship title at Harbor Shores. Though he has never won on the Champions Tour before, Chapman held onto the game despite shooting three bogeys on the last five holes. His labor paid off when he finally succeeded in winning this year’s first senior major.

The game ended for Chapman with a two-shot victory and a score of one-over-par 72. The five-shot cushion he achieved as a starter turned out to be crucial in his win. Chapman defeated John Cook and Hale Irwin, who placed second and third, respectively.

The birdies on the 3rd, 6th and 7th holes gave Chapman a strong start. He was leading by 9 shots when Cook started to catch up through the 9th, 13th and 14th holes.

Chapman’s lead was down to 4 after he hit bogeys on the 9th and 14th holes. He dropped two more shots at the 17th and 18th holes, putting his win at risk. But Cook was not able to overcome Chapman’s two-shot lead and Chapman finally secured the win.

The Senior PGA Championship was the second tournament Chapman joined this year, making his wire-to-wire win even more noteworthy. The previous highlight of Chapman’s career occurred way back in 2000 when he won the European Tour, held in Brazil.
