Cink started his professional career playing on the Nike Tour, which is now known as the Web.com Tour. He won three events on the Nike Tour in 1996 which meant that he qualified to play on the PGA Tour the following season. During his first season on the Tour, Cink achieved his first win, at the Canon Greater Hartford Open. Over the next few seasons Cink continued to play on the PGA Tour and his form remained at a consistent level. In 2004 he finished in fifth place on the Tour money list. Five years later, in 2009, Cink impressed with his win at the Open Championship. He achieved this win by beating veteran Tom Watson into second place.
