Tanner Green had only won more than $4,000 for a single run once in his career prior to 2024 and he quickly changed that at this year’s National Western.

The 25-year-old Texan was paid $4,635 for his 7.3-second run that won him the rodeo. It wasn’t just the second-biggest check for a run in his career, it was also the fastest run of his career.

Green’s Finals run was even more impressive when you consider how hard his calf ducked to the left out of the chutes.

“I ran him last night and I knew what he was going to do, I knew I just had to beat him to the left and he was great on the ground,” Green said. “I’m just happy I got it done on that kind of calf.”

Green also finished fifth in Round 2 and fourth in Round 1 in Denver and his only other check this season came when he was a 7.8 seconds at a qualifier for the National Western.

With the win, Green has now made $7,762 in the tie-down roping on the season and sits No. 20 in the PRCA World Standings. Combine that with the $6,478 he has won in team roping, and Green is the current All-Around World Standings leader.
