He won the 2011 Hali'imaile Pineapple Company Tournament of Champions over December 3-4. Chiarella won by four strokes as his 8-under par 136 total (66-70) was four strokes better than two runner-up players, as well as 8 stokes clear of Aaron Kunitomo, who signed a 2012 NLI with UCLA. The event was held at the Wailea Golf Club and played on the Emerald Course. In his first round 66, Chiarella carded 9 birdies in shooting 32-34. The win gave him entry into the Sony Skins Challenge in Oahu, an event he competed in two years ago with Matt Kuchar.
