Podcast: Zac Blair on Course Design, Baltusrol, Oakmont

August 17, 2016

Zac Blair leads the PGA Tour in events played this year, but even during his off weeks, and especially when he misses the cut, you still can find him playing golf.

Blair is a bonafide golf nut. After missing the cut at the PGA Championship at Baltusrol last month, he played Essex County Country Club, in West Orange, N.J., and the Course at Yale, in New Haven, Conn. This week (an off week in his schedule) he’s tackling the Long Island classics: Shinnecock Hills, Maidstone, Friar’s Head and National Golf Links.

The Tour sophomore from Utah joined the Podcast this week to talk about his love for course design, which started with his father’s involvement in the game. His passion for architecture has led him on a perpetual scouting mission to the best courses in the world, picking up bits and pieces of inspiration for The Buck Club, a course he’s designing alongside his dad.
