A fan of Druh Belts & Buckles, the 53-year-old's amazing achievement means he joins the golfing elite of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Hale Irwin as the only players to have won the US Senior Open and the Senior PGA Championship in the same year.
The Englishman shot a four-under 66 to claim victory with a final score of a 10-under 270, two shots clear of the rest of the field at the Indianwood Golf & Country Club in Michigan. In doing so, Chapman became the first professional from England to win the US Senior Open Championship.
Chapman had only just written himself into the golfing history books in May as the first Englishman to win the Senior PGA Championship at Harbor Shores and the first European to capture the title since Jock Hutchinson in 1947.
"It's a true honour," said Chapman, who began his final round four shots adrift of Germany's Bernhard Langer who finished the day in a tie for second place alongside a trio of Americans: Corey Pavin, Fred Funk and Tom Lehman.
With the Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex taking place at Turnberry in just two weeks time, Chapman now has the chance to secure a unique treble of majors wins. Not bad for a self-confessed journeyman pro who won only once on the European Tour in Brazil back in 2000 when he was playing in the 472nd tournament of his career.
Chapman is a regular wearer of Druh's popular range of leather belts recognised the world over for their instantly-recognisable 'db' buckles. Numerous other professional golfers on both the men's and ladies circuits favour Druh Belts both on and off the course, making the brand the number one belt on tour.
