Bernhard Langer (72), Fred Funk (67), Tom Lehman (68) and Corey Pavin (68) finished tied for second at 8-under-par 272.


If Chapman’s victory was surprising, it was no less so than Langer’s final-round meltdown. The World Golf Hall of Fame member held a four-stroke lead going into Sunday and he looked like he might pick up his second Francis Ouimet trophy. But a double bogey on the second hole marked the beginning of his problems.


“I knew there was a lot of golf left and I was still in the lead,” he said. “If I shoot under par from that point on, I’ll still be in good shape, but I couldn’t make a putt.” In


the meantime, Chapman was


impressive. He made two birdies on the front nine and four through 14. He slipped with a bogey when he failed to get up-and- down from a bunker, but to his credit he rallied on the 195-yard, par-3 17th when he

appearance, joining Roberto DeVicenzo (1980), Arnold Palmer (1981), Dale Douglass (1986), Lee Trevino (1990), Larry Laoretti (1992), Don Pooley (2002) and Peter Jacobsen (2004). Chapman claimed his second victory on the Champions Tour in his 21st career start on the circuit and joined Michael Allen as the second multiple winner on the Champions Tour in 2012.


COUNTRY CLUB


The Omaha Country Club may be a great unknown to the players in the field for the 2013 U.S. Senior Open, but those who have seen it have been impressed.


“It’s very, very hilly,” said Gary Hallberg. “You wouldn’t think Omaha would be, but [the course] is up and down and side to side. I was really ‘wowed.’ It will be a great venue. It seems to require a lot of local knowledge for where to hit it. It’s not driver on every hole, either. There are some great holes and some tricky ones. It’s a course with a very different look from this week.” Peter Jacobsen, for one, isn’t surprised.

“One of the things the USGA does, they never fail to go to a great golf course, and they never fail to put on a great event,” Jacobsen said. “Indianwood [the site of the 2012 Senior Open] is a tremendous venue. I would imagine next year in Omaha is going to be the same thing.”
