A North East golfer has his sights set on further professional golfing success after being awarded the China PGA Tour’s number one merit.

Callum Tarren, from Darlington, is attached to Rockliffe Hall and is sponsored by boutique Stockton-based insurance broker, Erimus Insurance Brokers. This latest achievement sees him receive a full playing card for the Web.com Tour, the developmental competition for the US PGA Tour.

“It’s been a fantastic tour. I’m lucky enough to have made 27 out of 27 cuts in a strong competition and I’m delighted to be taking part in the 2019 Web.com Tour,” he said.

Callum started 2018 ranked at 587 in the world and has progressed through to 319 thanks to his hard work and determination in the China Tour.

Paul Davison, managing director of Erimus, said: “We’re so proud of everything that Callum has achieved this year. He’s worked hard and that’s been evident in the way that he’s played.

“Sponsoring Callum seemed like a natural choice for us. We have always had a corporate membership at Rockliffe Hall and enjoy working to support our local community and causes.

“Callum’s success has also gained our business great exposure, raising our profile and increasing awareness of our brand; we enjoy following his success.”
