Roger M. Chapman (born 1 May 1959) is an English professional golfer who previously played on the European Tour and now plays on both the European Senior Tour and Champions Tour. He is a two time senior major champion, having won the 2012 Senior PGA Championship and the 2012 U.S. Senior Open.

Chapman was born in Nakuru, Kenya. He won the English Amateur in 1979 and represented Great Britain & Ireland in the 1981 Walker Cup, beating Hal Sutton twice in one day.

Chapman turned professional later that year and won a European Tour card on his first visit to the Qualifying School. He finished in the top 100 on the European Order of Merit 19 years out of 21 from 1982 to 2002, with a best ranking of 17th in 1988. After six second place finishes on the tour he finally won the 2000 Brazil Rio de Janeiro 500 Years Open on his 472nd tour start. He also won the 1988 Zimbabwe Open on the Sunshine Tour. Chapman won the Hassan II Golf Trophy in Morocco in 2000.

Chapman represented England in the 2000 Alfred Dunhill Cup.

In May 2012, Chapman won the Senior PGA Championship, one of the five senior major championships for his maiden victory on the Champions Tour. After holding a five stroke lead entering the final round, he prevailed by two over American John Cook. He won his second senior major in July 2012 at the U.S. Senior Open. He won by two strokes over Fred Funk, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, and Corey Pavin.
