Not making it easy for himself, Callum was second in the OOM going into the final event, the Clearwater Bay Open, where he would have to finish in solo second or better and OOM leader, Charlie Saxon, would need to come in a tie for 24th or worse.
As it happens, that’s exactly how things turned out. With a fantastic final round 62 (-8), giving Callum a finishing total of -11 and solo second place, Charlie Saxon finished the tournament in a tie for 25th.
After entering all 14 tournaments on the tours schedule, Callum ended the 2018 season on ￥1.1M, beating Charlie Saxon by ￥2376 (around £250)!
Callum has obviously had a fantastic season, however, with very little limelight. He is yet to record a victory on the PGA Tour of China, yet in the 2018 season (14 tournaments) he has recorded 3 runner-up finishes and 9 top 10s.
The most remarkable of Callum’s stats in that, including a full season on the PGA Tour of China in 2016, he is 27 for 27 in cuts made for his Tour career, with his worst finish being a tie for 41st. Callum was granted a sponsors invite into the D+D Real Czech Masters at the end of August, along with finishing in a tie for 29th. He also tied the course record 64 on the first day putting him in a tie for 1st with the likes of Thomas Pieters and John Daly.
After the 2018 season, Callum heads to The Bahamas, venue for the first Web.Com tournament of the 2019 season, ranked 319th in the world. He will also travel with former Rockliffe Hall attached golf professional, James Maw (who played for years on both the Europro and Challenge Tours), as his caddie.
From all the staff at Rockliffe Hall, we wish Callum all the best for the 2019 season.
