Jay Don BlakeI’d like to send a special congratulations to fellow Utahn Jay Don Blake.  JDB won the Champions Tour’s Songdo IBD Championship in Korea after surviving a five hole playoff with John Cook, Peter Senior and Mark O’Meara.

Some Jay Don Blake History

Jay Don Blake attended Utah State University in Logan, Utah.  He won the 1980 NCAA Championship and was the NCAA Player of the Year in 1981.  He’s a resident of St. George, learning to play golf on the small Dixie Red Hills nine hole course.

Amazingly Jay Don, who I have yet to meet, hadn’t recorded a victory since his lone PGA Tour win back in 1991 when he won the Shearson Lehman Brothers Open by two shots.

Well Played

Once again, congratulations on the big win.  Hope the next one comes quicker than 20 years!
