AmericaDavid Skinns has just won a PGA Tour membership card after 16 years of striving, including time as a delivery driver during the Covid-19 “storm”.

Next month, Skinns will welcome the PGA Tour with tickets to the full season of 2021-2022 thanks to winning the Pinnacle Bank Championship of the Korn Ferry Tour (KFT) second place on August 15.

Skinns kept par on the last hole to win the Pinnacle Bank Championship at -14 from there on the PGA Tour.

It is this victory that helps the English-born golfer enter the list of 25 KFT players on the PGA Tour next season.

“It’s been a tough time for me and for my family. But I always believed I would win,” Skinns said during the award ceremony.

Skinns has been a professional golfer since 2005, starting with minor tournaments. After seven years, he was promoted to the Second place system under the PGA Tour, struggling between the Korn Ferry Tour (KFT) and the group of separate tournaments for Canada to find a place to be promoted to First place but still failed.

Most players of this level have to attend the tournament diligently to earn bonuses to support their careers and dream of promotion. The income disparity can be seen in the bonus fund – $600,000 on average for a KFT event compared to $3 million at the Bermuda Championship among the PGA Tour’s most “poor” ones. To maintain his passion and ensure his life, Skinns also worked as a bartender in a bar.

In March 2020, KFT closed because of Covid-19 and it is not clear when to reopen. When rematching after more than three months, the host organization freezes the promotion process and merges the current season into the next season to ensure the common interests of members. The combined schedule consists of 43 events with the final point being the one that Skinns just won at the age of 39.

During the pandemic, Skinns helps his family make ends meet by delivering food to DoorDash. His family life may be easier thanks to the bonus of $ 135,000 last weekend. After a breakthrough victory in his personal career, Skinn jumped 143 places to 212th in the world professional men’s golf (OWGR table).
