Spartanburg,SC –

Nicolas Cassidy (Johns Creek, GA) started as he did yesterday with a birdie on the first hole to get to seven under for the tournament and build on his overnight lead. Jacob Bridgeman (Inman) reeled off three straight birdies on five, six, and seven to close within one. He then birdied nine to get to seven under for the tournament. Cassidy had a couple of bogies finishing the nine and put Bridgeman in the lead through the turn. Trent Phillips (Inman) got to four under through 15 holes and that put him at 7 under for the tournament to tie his HS teammate.

Bridgeman bogied 11 but birdied 16 to get back to seven while Trent birdied 16 and 17 to pull ahead by one. A three footer straight up the hill put Phillips at 9 under par for the tournament   and he just waited on Bridgeman to finish.  Bridgeman parred the par five 17th and a two putt par on 18 left him 2 shots shy of Phillips. “Winning the Chapman was one my competitive goals this year and it feels great adding this title to my resume” said the Georgia Bulldog commit. His three consecutive birdies on 16, 17, and 18 gave him the necessary cushion to capture his first Chapman title.

This win caps off a great summer season as he also took the SCGA Junior Championship, the Palmetto Amateur, and the Orange Jacket. Bridgeman won the Jimmy Self, Beth Daniel Junior Azalea, and  the Grant Bennett Florence Junior. The two boys from Inman have won about every major title they have played in this summer.

 The 90 player field represents 10 State titles, 10 AJGA Victories, 18 USGA Qualifiers, and 20 other national or regional victories. According to the GolfWeek Sagarin Rankings, the event is ranked 11th in the country based on strength of field.

Since 1995 the Bobby Chapman Invitational has played host to the nation's top junior golfers. The following Chapman alumni have gone on to achieve incredible honors in the game of golf. Currently our alumni has 56 PGA tour wins, 2 Masters titles, 2 US Open victories , 2 US Amateurs,  3 US Public Links,  a Fed Ex Cup Champion, a British Amateur Champion , and two US Junior Champions. They have combined for a total of PGA tour earnings of over $255,000,000. The current PGA Tour Memorial Champion; William McGirt, serves as a vital part of the working board of the Bobby Chapman Junior Invitational.

 The Bobby Chapman Junior Invitational is held in honor of the late Robert H. “Bobby” Chapman, Jr.  Chapman, a longtime member of the Country Club of Spartanburg, was the only man to serve as president of both the South Carolina Golf Association and Carolinas Golf Association.  He was an accomplished player and served the USGA in several capacities.  In his business life, Chapman was a local and national leader in the textile industry.  The tournament also benefits the Spartanburg County Foundation and the South Carolina Junior Golf Foundation.  To date, over $330,000 has gone to scholarship recipients through both organizations thanks to the many kind supporters of the Bobby Chapman.
