The following year he won the Fort Wayne Open and earned his PGA Tour card for 1992 through qualifying school. In his rookie year on Tour he didn't play well enough to retain full-time status on Tour but his 137th place finish gave him partial status.

He didn't play as well the following year and had to go through qualifying school to retain his card.
