Blair Wins First Tournament of 2012 at Coral Canyon

Zac Blair, three time UGA Player of the Year, had to come from behind to win the first tournament of the 2012 golf season at the Coral Canyon Amateur Sunday. He shot an opening round 70 and a final round 71 and finished a comfortable three shots ahead of Christian Jensen who shot even par 72-72-144.
Blair started the second day one shot behind John Busby and made things more difficult when he double bogeyed the fourth hole. The turning point came on the 12th hole when Busby double bogeyed and Blair birdied to take the air out of Busby’s hopes.
Al Simkins, who shot an opening round 68, easily won the Senior Division with a second round 73 and a 12 shot margin of victory over Jim Kane and Richard Cropper who finished in second at 153.
The final round was a sunny 50 degrees with a slight wind.
