Sirene Blair announced as UGA Women’s Player of the Year!
Sirene Blair, already one of Utah’s most decorated woman’s golfers, has added another laurel to her trophy case, the 2014 UGA Women’s Player of the Year.
The Blair name is very prominent on the men’s side of the UGA awards cabinet with Jimmy and Zac, and now it takes a deserving place in the women’s section. Sirene is not related to Jimmy and Zac, except in winning golf trophies. She is the daughter of Robert and Missee Blair.
Sirene is a sophomore at San Diego State and so played sparingly in Utah, but won the Player of the Year Award on the strength of winning her first Utah Women’s State Am title and reaching the quarterfinals of the USGA Women’s Public Links Championship.
Her State Am victory came with match play wins over Xena Motes, 5 and 4; Tara Green, 1-up; long time rival Lea Garner, 3 and 1; and in the championship match edged Allie Cluff, 1-up.
In the USGA Women’s Public Links she earned the 18th seed and won three matches before losing in the quarterfinals.
Her success in both of those tournaments made her the year end leader on the UGA Women’s Player Performance Rankings.
During her high school career Sirene led her Bingham High School girls golf team to four straight 5A team while also earning medalist honors all four years.
Blair is now a two time winner of this award which was created in 2012.
