A long road to tour for 40-year-old Englishman
Question of the Day
For work, Christian answered a classified ad offering $11.88 an hour to sell knives, but he wasn’t very good at that.
“I found it hard to see someone parting with $800 for steak knives,” he said.
Eventually, he moved on to Inverness and slowly worked his way to where he wanted to be all along.
The turning point came last summer, when he took his wife and two sons home to England.
Playing golf at his old club with friends, who had seen his action over the years, they told him he was ready. And as he says, the English don’t just toss around praise. Within a few months, he won a Nationwide Tour event that helped him lock up his card.
On Thursday, he will be introduced on the 10th tee at Waialae as a full-fledged PGA Tour member.
“The nerves haven’t hit me yet,” he said. “I’ll have to work 100 percent on relaxing and breathing, my tempo and rhythm, and trust the hard work I’ve done.”
