The 1st concern posed to Callum Tarren in his post-spherical media job interview Sunday was his reaction to locking up his PGA TOUR card. With a aspiration that large on the line and no actual physical card in his hand still even though, Tarren essential affirmation that he was in point heading to the big exhibit and that the Route to the PGA TOUR was a highway he’s now traveled all the way down.
“Are you sure?” Tarren questioned.
“100 percent?” Tarren questioned again.
Yes, verified. 2021-2022 PGA TOUR membership locked up.
“That’s mad. That is significantly insane,” Tarren reported. “Speechless.”
The 30-calendar year-aged England indigenous felt like he had been “knocking on the door for a extensive time.” Perfectly, that door opened Sunday courtesy of a T4 at the Nationwide Children’s Clinic Championship, a complete potent plenty of to safe one of the 25 PGA TOUR playing cards presented out in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals with just one event nevertheless remaining.
The T4 arrived on the heels of a disappointing last round 72 at the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft Nabisco, where he concluded T26. Heading into this week, he was kicking himself at what he felt was a missed possibility in Boise, but he realized his sport was in a superior location. He just had to have faith in it and go enjoy golf – a message that was reinforced just before the closing round as he was scrolling via social media.
“I basically listened to Stephan Jaeger’s interview yesterday and he said anything along the strains of, ‘There’s no place in worrying about the end result, just go enjoy golfing,’ and I assumed you know what that is how I perform my very best. So why not?” Tarren reported. “All working day I just held expressing to myself, ‘I’m obtaining a recreation with mates and let us make as numerous birdies as feasible.’ I felt quiet out there, which was actually very good. Hit some wonderful photographs and yeah, I’m just pumped.”
The way Tarren figured it he had practically nothing to shed in the course of the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. His 1st youngster, a child female named Sofia, was born two weeks back, and he flew house to England concerning the standard season finale and the begin of the Finals in Boise. With a new daughter and his occupation secured for upcoming year through the Finals berth, he figured there was no serious downside to consider in the Finals.
“When I came back certainly it was limited to make Boise, but at the finish of the working day, I experienced nothing to shed,” Tarren stated. “The two scenarios were that I both get a TOUR card, which is a lifelong intention and dream of mine, or the other was invest a few months at household with my daughter and my fiancée. And 1 of them has took place and it is likely the one particular that I needed.”
Now, with his TOUR card secured for the initially time, Tarren’s attention has turned to his future objective: keeping out there.
“My goal as quickly as I received on to the Korn Ferry Tour was to make the PGA TOUR, and now the purpose is of course to continue to be on the PGA TOUR,” Tarren claimed. “All the men down on Korn Ferry Tour are awesome, all the employees, the volunteers, it is unbelievable. The tournaments you men place on are just extraordinary, but anyone desires to engage in on the PGA TOUR, and which is wherever we’re heading by your account.”
Confirmed. Welcome to the PGA TOUR, Mr. Tarren!
