Chapman withdraws from Senior Open with neck injury



Roger Chapman will not have a chance to tie Jack Nicklaus' mark of three senior major victories in a year, as he pulled out of the Senior Open Championship on Friday with a neck injury.

The Englishman dealt with pain to shoot 72 in the first round Thursday at Turnberry. He withdrew, however, before the start of the second round, according to the Associated Press.



Chapman had already won the Senior PGA and U.S. Senior Open in 2012 - the first two wins of his Champions Tour career coming in Michigan.

Nicklaus won three senior majors in 1991, taking The Tradition, Senior PGA and Senior Open.
