Kevin Chappell : Citizen 59
It's not easy owning a brand, especially when it comes to sponsoring an athlete or an influencer. Are they a good person, do they represent our brand values, do they care about sustainability? Lucky for us, Kevin was the easiest athlete decision we've made (next to signing up RJ and Noah).
Kevin has long been considered a local hero, having played and practiced at Aldarra Golf Club right here in our backyard during the summers between events, but he's also a great guy, a family man, and it only helps that he's probably the best golfer we know. Let's not forget that he was a (3x) All-American at UCLA, won the Jack Nicklaus award for best collegiate golfer in America (2008) and won the NCAA Championship that same year. Kevin's also proven himself as a professional, winning on the PGA Tour, finishing 3rd in the US Open, and being the 11th person to shoot 59 in a PGA Tour event.
He's got all the golfing credentials you'd ever want for a golf brand, and to make it that much better - he's the guy you want to have beers with after a round, or a dinner at home watching college football. We're proud to call Kevin a friend, and we're thrilled to be a part of his journey on the PGA Tour.
