Roger Chapman

In 2012, he made history by becoming the first Englishman to win the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, earning a two-stroke victory over John Cook at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich. Barely two months later, he returned to Michigan to capture the U.S. Senior Open title at Indianwood in Lake Orion, becoming the first Englishman to win a USGA event since Tony Jacklin in the 1970 U.S. Open. He became only the fourth player after Gary Player (1987), Jack Nicklaus (1991) and Hale Irwin (1998) to collect the "senior major double" in the same season. Those were his maiden PGA Tour Champions titles after multiple runner-up finishes.
On the European Senior Tour in 2011, Chapman was runner-up in the Mauritius Commercial Bank Open and joint runner-up in the Travis Perkins Senior Masters. He also posted two top-10 finishes to end the 2011 season in 11th position on the Order of Merit.
After working as a Tour Rules Official in 2007 and 2008, he joined the Senior Tour in 2009 and began by leading both the Son Gual Mallorca Senior Open and Irish Seniors Open in association with Failte Ireland and AIB Bank going into the final round, before finishing third and tying for third, respectively. Had a hole-in-one on his Senior Major Championship debut and just missed out on the Rookie of the Year award, when Mike Harwood won the final event of the season.
Won his maiden European Tour title on his 472nd start, defeating Padraig Harrington at the second hole of a playoff for the 2000 Brazil Rio de Janeiro 500 Years Open. A six-time runner-up on the European Tour before winning in Brazil, he then went into the winner's circle late in 2000, capturing the Hassan II Trophy in Morocco. Reached 600 European Tour appearances in the 2005 Jazztel Open de Espana en Andalucia.
When he turned professional in 1981, it was with an impressive amateur pedigree, including an English Amateur Championship and a Walker Cup appearance for Great Britain and Ireland in 1981, when he beat 1980 U.S. Amateur champion and future major champion Hal Sutton twice in one day at Cypress Point.

Got as high as 32nd with two full-field events remaining after a T-third at the Nature Valley First Tee Open, his best finish of the year and best Champions Tour effort since winning the 2012 U.S. Senior Open.
