HAYWARD, California — Entering the day one stroke off the lead, Zac Blair posted a final-round 3-under 67 to win his first Korn Ferry Tour title at 17-under at the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae. The win catapulted Blair to 10th in the season-long points standings and secures his return to the PGA TOUR for the 2019-20 season.
“I’ve been playing really well these last few weeks, so I felt like I was close,” Blair said. “It was nice to get it done and lock up my card. It’ll be great to get back out there.”
Blair tallied five top-10s and 15 top-25s on the PGA TOUR from 2015-18 before returning to the Korn Ferry Tour for the 2019 season. He entered the week on a hot streak, posting top-10s in three out of his last four events, but was still outside The 25 with two weeks remaining in the Regular Season.
