Early years

Born in Huntington, New York, DiMarco moved to Florida with his family at age seven. Bill Ernst, " Chris DiMarco: Seminole County's champion ," Seminole Magazine (Undated 2004).

DiMarco was raised in a sports-oriented family; both of his older brothers were athletes, and his father played college basketball for St. John's University. DiMarco's nephew Patrick DiMarco is a professional football player.

College career

Professional career

DiMarco turned professional in 1990, won the Canadian Tour's Order of Merit as its money leader in 1992,"Who To Watch," York Daily Record (June 30, 1993). and finished ninth on the second-tier Nike Tour in 1993 to earn his PGA Tour card for 1994.Laury Livsey, " DiMarco reaches out with Tee Up for Life event ," PGATour.com (November 2, 2009). Retrieved July 16, 2011. However, he was not always able to maintain his place on the PGA Tour, and he won his first professional tournament on the Nike Tour at the 1997 Nike Ozarks Open. As he moved into his 30s, he continued to improve, capturing his first trophy on the PGA Tour at the 2000 SEI Pennsylvania Classic.Joe Logan, "http://articles.philly.com/2002-09-11/sports/25361170_1_chris-dimarco-sei-pennsylvania-classic-waynesborough-country-club Skipped practices making perfect," Philadelphia Inquirer (September 11, 2002).

His second PGA Tour victory was the 2001 Buick Challenge, where he sank a birdie on the 18th hole to tie leader David Duval, and then won on the first hole of a sudden death playoff.Associated Press, "DiMarco works overtime to top Duval," Chicago Sun-Times, p. 79 (October 29, 2001). He won his third PGA Tour event at the 2002 Phoenix Open, which featured an infamous moment—as DiMarco was addressing a pressure putt at TPC Scottsdale's 16th hole, one of the fans yelled "Noonan!" (a reference from the movie Caddyshack).Clifton Brown, " Golf; An Unflappable DiMarco Turns Around a Brief Retreat," The New York Times (January 28, 2002). Retrieved July 16, 2011. DiMarco maintained his concentration and sank the putt, then pointed at the fan and demanded that a tournament official eject him. By 2004, he had finished in the top twenty on the PGA Tour money list for five straight seasons, and had tied for second in the PGA Championship, losing the title to Vijay Singh in a three-way playoff.Leonard Shapiro, "https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A3573-2004Aug15.html For Singh, a Most Pleasant Surprise," The Washington Post, p.
