Scott Parel Wins the 2020 Chubb Classic

Scott Parel closed with an 8-under 63 to erase a three-shot deficit and win the Chubb Classic by two with a tournament record-tying 17-under total. It was the third win of his career and he moved to No. 1 in the Charles Schwab Cup for the first time in his career.




  • After a 4-under 31 on the front nine, Parel took a two-shot lead when he birdied No. 10 and Bernhard Langer bogeyed Nos. 8 and 9. Parel led by three after a birdie on No. 12, and he played his last six holes in 2-under to post a final-round 63 and win by two.
  • The win is Parel's third of his PGA TOUR Champions career. All three of his wins were final-round comebacks.
    • 2018 Boeing Classic – T5/trailed by 5

    • 2018 Invesco QQQ Championship – T2/trailed by 1

    • 2020 Chubb Classic – T6/trailed by 3

  • Parel’s 54-hole total of 196 matches a tournament record. Bernhard Langer was 20-under/196 in 2011 at The Quarry and Kenny Perry was 20-under/196 in 2012 at TwinEagles.
  • Parel started Sunday’s final round T6 and three shots behind 36-hole leader Stephen Leaney. Last year, Miguel Angel Jiménez also erased a three-shot deficit on Sunday; he started T15 and closed with a bogey-free 66 to earn a spot in the three-man playoff.
  • Parel moves to No. 1 in the Charles Schwab Cup for the first time in his career. His previous best position was No. 2, which he attained after winning the 2018 Invesco QQQ Championship. He went on to finish that season No. 3 in the Charles Schwab Cup.
