David Wayne Toms (born January 4, 1967) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He has won a total of thirteen events on the PGA Tour including the 2001 PGA Championship. He has spent a considerable amount of time in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings (over 175 weeks between 2001 and 2006) and ranked as high as fifth in 2002 and 2003.
Toms was born in Monroe in northeastern Louisiana. He is the son of Thomas E. "Buster" Toms of Minden in northwestern Louisiana. He won the 15-17 Boys' event at the 1984 Junior World Golf Championships. Toms also played little league baseball with future Major League Baseball players Albert Belle and Ben McDonald. After graduating from Airline High School in Bossier City, Louisiana, he attended Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, where he was a member of the golf team.
In 1991, Toms finished T23 at the PGA Tour qualifying school to earn his first full tour card for the 1992 season. Toms made his first three cuts on tour including a third place finish at the Northern Telecom Open, although this was the only top-10 he would make all season. The following season was also a struggle for Toms making just 12 of 32 cuts for the season, of which three were top-10 finishes. In 1994, Toms' lack of success continued on the PGA Tour and he lost his playing rights for the 1995 season.
