Chapman wins another major at U.S. Senior Open
Chapman shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday to win the event by two strokes over a
slew of players at Indianwood Golf & Country Club. He finished at 10-under
It must be something about major championship golf in the state of Michigan
for Chapman. His Senior PGA title in May came at The Golf Club at Harbor
“Just a lovely area,” Chapman joked at his trophy presentation.
The Englishman became the fourth player in Champions Tour history to win both
of those prestigious titles in the same year. Gary Player did it in 1988, then
Jack Nicklaus turned the trick three years later. Hale Irwin was the last to
accomplish the feat back in 1998.
These two majors are Chapman’s only victories on the elder circuit.
Third-round leader Bernhard Langer never got anything going on Sunday. He
carded a 2-over 72 and tied for second with 2009 winner Fred Funk (67),
Tradition champion Tom Lehman (68) and 1995 U.S. Open titlist Corey Pavin
(68). The group was knotted at 8-under 272.
John Cook fired a 4-under 66 and shared sixth place with John Huston, who
managed an even-par 70. They came in minus-6, which was one better than Mark
Wiebe, whose 68 on Sunday gave him eighth at 5-under par.
