Kevin Chappell squeaked into the final spot of the US President’s Cup. He closed with an even par score of 71 at the TPC Boston championship.
As a result, he was able to overtake Charley Hoffman and gained the final spot that qualified him for the US President’s Cup and to be part of the qualifying team.
Hoffman was tied for the 47th position and finished at 68 points. He had the 10th spot as the week started in the US list, but with Kevin Chappell’s performance, he dropped to the 11th position. He would now have to wait for the announcement of two picks that the US captain will declare on Wednesday. Chappell on the other hand, admitted that he was nervous and was not sure what the outcome would be. He did not want the effects as it did on Hoffman but he also had to do his best to try and get his foot into the list. Both Hoffman and Chappell finished with similar points while Chappell was able to get a fractional amount ahead of Hoffman.
Chappell was able to get slight margins at the end, which helps him to get into the list for the Presidents Cup. Chappell is unclear about the course record of his games that he played at Liberty National; Chappell was at the playoff opener since 2013 at the New Jersey courses; this year he definitely sees progress. The top ten players who have qualified for the Presidents Cup comprise of names like Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, and Daniel Berger topping the list.
The US President’s Cup is an awaited tournament of the year and it remains to be seen how the top ten selected work along with the captain to make the most of this competitive event.
