We caught up with local golfer, Callum Tarren, as he wraps up the Web.com PGA Tour in the USA. Erimus announced its sponsorship of Callum back in 2018 and since then he has gone from strength to strength.
San Antonio, Texas – 21st to 28th April
The tour kicked off in San Antonio, where Callum made a strong start to his campaign finishing T19th. “What a great week we had in San Antonio, I got a real all American experience” notes Callum. He was situated on a 2000 acre ranch where he was able to fish, hunt, off road and BBQ during his down-time. “When we arrived in San Antonio we were all shattered, we touched down at 3am and made our way to the host house – or at least so we thought! We accidentally walked in to a stranger’s home in the middle of the night, suffice to say I am just glad we managed to make it out without being shot” joked Callum.
Nashville, Tennessee – 29th April to 5th May
Unfortunately Callum missed the cut by 2 shots so didn’t play the weekend. The golfer didn’t let this stop him enjoying the history and music of Nashville, even catching up with some College friends.
Kansas City, Missouri – 6th to 12th May
Callum is used to the volatile North Eastern climate but Kansas City saw 12 inches of rain at the weekend. The golfer praised the course “They did incredibly well to host the event with that amount of rain”. Thankfully he made the cut but finished T38th.
Knoxville, Tennessee – 13th to 19th May
Determined to make the cut in Tennessee, Callum played the weekend. Although a little disappointed at finishing T69th he didn’t let this dampen his spirits. The golfer expressed his gratitude for being able to play these courses “Knoxville was another amazing week, to be honest there hasn’t been may bad ones! We stayed with another really cool host family on Loundon Lake where we were able to jet ski, wake board and go out on the boat”.
Glenview, Chicago – 20th to 26th May
The golfer’s first time in the windy city did not disappoint, he finished the week on -7 and 42nd overall. Taking a break from golf, Callum managed to catch a game of baseball seeing the famous Chicago Cubs in their home stadium.
Callum is hopeful for the future “My game has felt solid all year and I am just trying to stay patient. I am waiting for the week it all seems to click and my game comes together, hopefully that will be sooner rather than later”.
