Short Par 4 Staffer John Chin Captures his PGA TOUR Card at Tour Winco Foods Portland Open

SARASOTA, FL – August 21, 2018 - Short Par 4,  a golf inspired box subscription service that ships hand curated, top quality, branded golf apparel, footwear and accessories directly to golfers, announced today that their professional staff member John Chin captured his first PGA TOUR membership card.


It has been a lifelong dream for Chin to be on the PGA TOUR. He joined the Tour in 2011 and has been working years to graduate to the PGA TOUR. This week, Chin began the week ranked 41st – well outside of the 25-spots available during the regular season. He needed some impressive play and low scores to make the projected cut at and that he did. Chin shot a 31 on the back nine and finished 18 with a birdie, a bogey would have jeopardized his chance. After the last putt dropped, he did too.


Chin finished second at the Winco Foods Portland Open presented by Kraft-Heinz which catapulted him to 10th place in the ranking and locked in his FIRST 2018-2019 PGA TOUR membership card. There are 25 other PGA TOUR membership cards which will be awarded during the Tour Finals. Fellow Short Par 4 team member, Kevin Dougherty, ranked 26th will have another chance to gain his card through the Tour Finals.

“Congratulations to John. It is so nice to see someone who has worked so hard reached their goal. We at Short Par 4 are incredibly proud of him and this achievement,” commented Short Par 4 CEO, Bobby DiMeo. “Our team is excited for Kevin too. Missing one birdie putt not to quality is rough but when he secures his card during these finals, it will taste that much sweeter,” added DiMeo.
