Scott Jamieson Secures DP World Tour Card for 2024 Season with Third Place Finish at Qatar Masters
Scott Jamieson opens up about his fears and the pressure he faced before securing his DP World Tour card for the 2024 season. The Scottish golfer, who was ranked 119th in the Race to Dubai, needed to finish in the top 116 at the Qatar Masters to retain his playing privileges. The 39-year-old managed to secure his card with a third-place finish in Doha and discussed the relief he felt during an interview on the Sky Sports Golf Podcast.
“It was a very real possibility that I would lose my DP World Tour card and have to play on the Challenge Tour for a year. I had to ask myself if that’s something I wanted to do,” said Jamieson, reflecting on the pressure he experienced. He also shared the extreme thoughts that crossed his mind, such as the fear of not being able to afford his current home and the impact it would have on his children.
“These thoughts may seem extreme, but they’re the kind of thoughts that keep you up at night. I had to step up and perform,” Jamieson added. On the podcast, he also discussed the source of his excellent performance in Qatar, where he shot a total of 16 under for the tournament.
