Spartanburg,SC –

Nicolas Cassidy (Johns Creek, GA) won two AJGA titles to earn his way into the 22nd Bobby Chapman field and positioned himself to claim victory with a first round 65. The reigning 6A High School champion started off slowly with only two par five birdies on the front nine. Four birdies on the back nine gave Cassidy the one shot margin heading into the final round. Greenville’s Levi Moody left his last birdie put two inches short to tie Cassidy on the par four ninth. His 66 puts Moody in solo second ahead of a pair of 67’s (Ben Fuller, Nicholas Lylerly). Twenty six players managed to break par over the opening round. 

 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.
