DARLINGTON golfer Callum Tarren has qualified to compete at the US Open next Monday for one of the biggest events in the golfing calendar.

The 31-year-old will head to Brooklyn, Masschusets next Monday on June 13th with the tournament beginning on Thursday 16th for the biggest tournament on the PGA Tour calendar after finishing in the top three of qualifying.

Earlier this week, Tarren came tied in second place in the USGA Qualifier after hitting a first round 68 and a second round 65 to finish nine under par for the tournament. He reached made the cut alongside Japan’s Satoshi Kodaira and Sweden’s Jonas Blixt who finished on ten under in first place.

It’s the second time Tarren will compete at the US Open having made it through qualifying in 2019 to go on to play at Pebble Beach.

He competes in the US PGA Tour and has played 16 events in the calendar so far. His best result so far has been securing a seventh place finish at Eagles Club in Canada. However, competing on this year’s PGA Tour will give him valuable experience heading into the US Open next week.

Before Tarren heads out to Brooklyn on Monday, he will compete in the Canadian Open tomorrow morning in what will be the preamble before heading to compete against some of the biggest golfers in the world.

The Darlington man regularly heads back and forth to Darlington in between tour tournaments but his family, parents, fiancée and young daughter, are all expected to fly out to Massachusetts to see him in action on Monday where they will tee off at The Country Club.

Masters winner Scottie Scheffler, previous winner Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm, who all compete on the PGA Tour, are some of the favourites to win the US Open.
