Congratulations Blair!

By: Tenna Merchent on August 9th, 2012

Earlier this week Blair Shadday, assistant golf professional here at Purgatory Golf Club won the Indiana PGA Assistant Championship with a three-round total 216 at Meridian Hills Country Club. Blair has also won 3 out of the last four Assistant Championships. When we were talking about it, he said that he was surprised how nervous he was, being the leader and the player that was expected to win. That is a lot of pressure, but Blair loves the game of golf.

I remember one day I was attending a social event at Purgatory Golf Club, and I went back to my office to get my camera and tripod to take some sunset pictures. Blair and I were talking and I said “I’m just more comfortable with a camera in my hands,” and he replied, “I understand, I’m definitely more comfortable with a golf club in my hands!” Blair has the golf bug as deeply as anyone I know, and I obviously know a lot of golfers.

I’ve taken a few pieces of some video we shot for another project and stitched them together so you can get an opportunity to have a little insight into Blair’s personality. He’s very special, and we are lucky to have him here at Purgatory Golf Club. We hope you enjoy the video!
