Video: Jay Don Blake Drops An Incredible Downhill Chip-In Birdie

Jay Don Blake is playing in the Mitsubishi Electric Classic down in Georgia at TPC Sugarloaf. The 58-year-old from Utah was even for the day, and in danger of dropping a stroke on the par-4 12th when his approach shot landed left of the green on a slippery down-slope.

An up and down would have been terrific for Blake. A chip-in birdie would be even more amazing. And that’s just what Blake did.

As Lanny Wadkins said in the broadcast, “Thank you flag stick!”

Blake finished his second round with a 2-under 70 and is tied for 10th at 5-under-par.
