Christian Dean DiMarco (born August 23, 1968) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. DiMarco has won seven tournaments as a pro, including three PGA Tour events.

DiMarco was born in Huntington, New York in 1968, and moved to Florida with his family at the age of 7. He attended Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs, Florida, where he played for the Lake Brantley Patriots high school golf team and began dating his future wife at the age of 17. 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.

He received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he played for coach Lynn Blevins and coach Buddy Alexander's Florida Gators men's golf teams in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition from 1987 to 1990. As a Gator golfer, he shot a three-round score of 209 to win the Southeastern Conference (SEC) individual title in 1989, while leading the Gators to an SEC team championship. He also was a seven-time medalist, a first-team All-SEC selection in 1989 and 1990, the SEC Player of the Year in 1990, and an All-American in 1988, 1989 and 1990. DiMarco was inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great" in 2002.
