Pro Golf – Forme Tour

22-year-old  Saptak Talwar of New Delhi, who in March became the first Indian to earn playing rights on the PGA Tour Canada,  will make his pro debut in the US$ 115,000 Forme Tour event in Georgia. 

Back in March, Saptak shot solid rounds of  69-74-67-69 (9-under,  279) to finish tied-4th in the PGA Canada Tour Qualifying Tournament in Florida while still completing his 4th and final year of college.

Talking about his pro debut, Saptak said, “I’m excited to get the ball rolling with my professional journey. I feel like I’ve been working really hard on my game lately, trying to peak at the right time. I’ve made some good developments so now it’s just a matter of execution.”

The Forme Tour is a parallel tour created by the US PGA Tour for current PGA TOUR Canada members due to restrictions and other COVID-19-related issues on the U.S.-Canadian border. For 2021, PGA TOUR Canada members will be given access to the Forme Tour, allowing them the ability to compete in a series of U.S.-based events between June and September.

The Forme Tour will continue to provide Official World Golf Ranking points and is planning an eight-tournament schedule played during the summer. The top-five points earners from this series of 8 events, which Talwar will play, will earn Korn Ferry Tour membership which could ultimately lead to the main PGA Tour.
