TWO Darlington golfers are celebrating after making it on to the Tour scene for 2020.

Callum Tarren and Andrew Wilson, both attached to Rockliffe Hall, will be hitting the stages on either side of the Atlantic in a bid to join the elite.

The duo have made massive progress in the last couple of years and have earned the right to compete on the newly-named Korn Ferry Tour and the Challenge Tour, respectively speaking.

Tarren will be playing on the USA-based Tour for the second year in a row having successfully came through Final Stage of the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament on Sunday at the Orange Counnty National Golf Center.

Tarren is guaranteed eight starts on the Tour after making the cut, even though he would have preferred one of the top two places that would have earned full exemption. Due to his ranking on the overall Order of Merit he would hope to play in more too.

He said: “Last season was very up and down. I’ve played a lot of solid golf in 2019 I just haven’t been able to put two rounds together. There has been a lot of learning and I will be ready to rock come 2020.”

Tarren fulfilled a dream of playing in the US Open at Pebble Beach in June, a month before Wilson did the same by playing at The Open Championship at Royal Portrush. Both qualified.

That was part of Wilson’s season which earned him the Motocaddy Masters title at Linden Hall on the EuroPro Tour. He ended up finishing sixth on the Order of Merit, two places outside the guaranteed spots for a place on the Challenge Tour.

But Wilson, hoping to start his year in February, said: “Well I finished sixth but because two of the guys ahead of me had an awesome year on Challenge Tour they kept their cards. Basically when I finished I knew I was effectively fourth on the order of merit and that meant I could start to plan for the Challenge Tour.”
