Darron’s Bio

Born June 1, 1973, in St. Petersberg Florida, Darron Stiles has made golf his life’s passion. He was a three-time All-American at Florida Southern College where he was also a member of the 1995 NCAA Division II National Championship Team. He turned pro out of college and began his successful career on both the Web.com Tour and PGA TOUR.

Darron says that holing out on the 72nd hole for eagle to win the 1999 Dominion Open in Richmond, VA is his biggest thrill in golf thus far. Outside of the game, Stiles cites the birth of his children as the most exciting moment in his life thus far.

Stiles gained his PGA TOUR card for 2007 by finishing tied for 16th at Q-School. He earned his 2009 PGA TOUR card by finishing 7th on the Nationwide Tour money list. Darron Stiles is the all-time career money leader through 2012 with his win at the News Sentinel Open on the Web.com Tour.

No great golf game is complete without a little bit of personality. Darron always marks his golf ball with a 1960s coin, and he never travels without peanut butter. When he’s not playing, he likes to cheer on the University of Miami, Atlanta Braves, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Darron Stiles is a supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Both his aunt and sister-in-law are breast cancer survivors. Darron himself had successful surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his jaw in 1989. Surgeons grafted bone from his hip to repair his jaw.
