David Franklin "D. J." Brigman, Jr. (born May 3, 1976) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour and the Web.com Tour.

Brigman was born in Clovis, New Mexico, and played college golf at the University of New Mexico, graduating in 1999. During his college career, he won both the 1996 and 1998 New Mexico State Amateur titles, and the 1998 U.S. Collegiate Golf Championship, thanks to a final-round 68 to top second place finisher Charles Howell III. Turning professional after graduation, he won the 2000 New Mexico Open.

Brigman has bounced back and forth between the PGA Tour and the Web.com Tour (formerly Nationwide Tour). He played the Nationwide Tour in 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2008 to 2010 and the PGA Tour in 2004, 2005, 2007, and 2011. He has won twice on the Nationwide Tour. His best finishes on the PGA Tour was a pair of T-11s in 2004; at the Shell Houston Open and the Bell Canadian Open.

Brigman first earned entry onto the PGA Tour in dramatic fashion by holing a 12 foot putt on the 18th hole of the 2003 Nationwide Tour Championship. The putt vaulted him to a second place finish, clinching a spot for promotion to the PGA Tour for 2004.

He has also made three appearances in the U.S. Open via sectional and regional qualifying, playing in the 2005, 2007, and 2008 events, with a T30 as his top finish at Oakmont Country Club in 2007.

Brigman has been a member Ping's staff for many years, utilizes Titleist golf balls, wears FootJoy shoes and Polo shirts.

In July 2010, Brigman won the Nationwide Tour's Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational, shooting a bogey free 64 in the final round at the Ohio State Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio. He earned a return to the PGA Tour for the fourth time in 2011, by finishing as the 18th leading money winner on the 2010 Nationwide Tour, with total winnings of $246,769. His 286 total in the 2010 Nationwide Tour Championship gave him a T21st finish.

On June 25, 2011, Brigman made his first career hole in one during play at the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship by dropping a nine iron into the cup on the par-3 150 yard 11th hole at TPC at River Highlands.

On November 18, 2011, Brigman qualified for PGA Tour Q-School finals that were held on November 30 through December 5, 2011. At Q-School, Brigman's six round total of 428 left him four shots away from full-time PGA Tour status. He returned to the Nationwide Tour for the 2012 season.

During the 2013 Web.com Tour season, Brigman had three top-10 finishes including a T2nd at the South Georgia Classic. He also surpassed $2M in career profession earnings.

Brigman will be competing on the Web.com Tour in 2014.
