IJGT Alumni shine in Hawaii on the PGA Tour

It was a great weekend for IJGT alumni on the PGA Tour. Five IJGT alumni finished in the top 13 at the PGA Tour’s Sony Open on January 14-17, 2016. Leading the pack was Zac Blair of Salt Lake City, Utah, who recorded a third-place finish with a tournament total of 19-under, 261. Blair, who is only in his second full season on the PGA Tour, nearly won the event, but was not able to make his eagle putt on the closing hole to join a playoff with Brandt Snedeker and eventual champion, Fabian Gomez. It was a valiant effort, and helped him record his best finish ever on the PGA Tour.

Webb Simpson of Raleigh, N.C., Morgan Hoffmann of Franklin Lakes, N.J., and Daniel Summerhays of Farmington, Utah, all finished in a tie for 13th place ending the tournament at 12-under-par.
