Senior PGA's Roger Chapman enjoys dinner at lucky restaurant

STEVENSVILLE, Mich.--- Athletes are notoriously superstitious individuals especially when they're on a winning streak.

In 2012 British golfer Roger Chapman surprised everyone by winning the Senior PGA Championship.

On Wednesday night, Chapman sat down with NewsCenter 16's Tricia Harte at his lucky restaurant, The Grand Mere Inn in Stevensville, Michigan.

During his rise to the title two years ago the superstitious golfer didn't want to break his routine which included dining at the restaurant every night.

This year the family owned restaurant had Chapman's winning table reserved.

Two years later Chapman hopes he can pick up his streak where he left off.

“I only use white tees, I've got two lucky ball markers, an American quarter that I've had for a long, long time, I don't wear green on Saturdays but apart from that I'm not superstitious,” said Chapman.

And you might ask what a Senior PGA Champion eats for dinner.

Well tonight the answer is Blackened Swordfish.

Let's see if it brings him the same luck in this year’s championship.
