Chapman goes undefeated to capture his first and what could be his last Q City 9-Ball title

Younger Chapman
He literally took a parting shot. After two years of playing on the Q City 9-Ball Tour, Younger Chapman has had what tour director Herman Parker called "several close calls," including four occasions in which he was runner-up, but until Saturday, June 20, Chapman had yet to chalk up a win on the tour. According to Parker, Chapman is moving to western Kentucky in a couple of weeks, and apparently decided that on his last event before the move, he'd go undefeated to win his first event on the Q City 9-Ball Tour. The tournament drew 26 entrants to Buck's Billiards in Raleigh, NC.
Chapman advanced to a winners' side semifinal and defeated J.T. Ringold 7-3. Chapman was joined in the hot seat match by Anthony Mabe, who'd sent Ty Griffin west 6-4. Chapman claimed the hot seat over Mabe 7-3 and waited on the return of Paul Swinson.
On the loss side, Griffin drew Swinson, who'd defeated Travis Geurra 7-4 and Shane Hardie 6-5. Ringold picked up Tracy Callahan, who'd gotten by Vernon Rogers 5-4 and Alan Shaw 5-2 to reach him. Swinson shut Griffin out, and in the quarterfinals, faced Callaghan, who'd eliminated Ringold 5-4. 
Swinson took the quarterfinal match, defeating Callaghan 6-4, and then spoiled Mabe's bid for a second shot against Chapman, by defeating him in the semifinals 6-5. Chapman took the opening set of the potential true double elimination final 7-3, and took that parting shot to claim the event title.
