Jay Don Blake made his two stroke lead hold up in the final round at TPC Harding for his second Champions Tour win.
Soft spoken injury plagued Jay Don Blake is getting healthy on the Champions Tour. His win Sunday in San Francisco was his second in 5 weeks on the Senior circuit following years of frustration on the PGA Tour. The mustached Utah pro had a two shot cushion entering the final round at the Schwab Cup, and maintained that margin for victory over 4 others including Mark Calcavecchia, who needed a two-way tie for second in order to capture the Season money winning title and earn the Schwab Cup. At 6 underpar, Jay Haas, Michael Allen, and Loren Roberts all split the second place purse, and when the final dollars were counted, Tom Lehman barely edged Calcavecchia to earn the Schwab Cup trophy.
