Blair wins Ellie Mae Classic on the Korn Ferry Tour

HAYWARD, Calif. (ABC4 Sports) – Former Fremont High School and BYU golfer Zac Blair picked up his first win on the Korn Ferry Tour on Sunday.

Blair shot a final round 67 (-3) to end the week at 17 under par, good enough for a one shot win over Brandon Crick at the Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward, CA.

The win elevates Blair to 10th on the Korn Ferry points standings, and guarantees his PGA Tour card for next season.

“I felt like I was in a weird situation where I was playing a lot so I knew I had to either take a break or get my card,” Blair said. “It was nice to get it done and lock up my card,” Blair said. “It’ll be great to get back out there.”

Blair joins the ranks of Billy Casper, Johnny Miller, Mike Reid, Mike Weir, Dan Forsman, Jay Don Blake, Bob Betley, Bruce Summerhays, Keith Clearwater, Tony Finau and Danny Summerhays as golfers with ties to Utah who have won PGA Tour sponsored events.
