Blake was nominated by his Operation 36 Coach Sara Griffin. She said, "Blake is an incredible golfer who has progressed quickly through the Operation 36 curriculum with awesome success. Blake persevered through the 4th level for almost 20 attempts to pass at 150 and then during his attempt to pass at 200 he made a hole in one!"
"Blake has participated in many matches with us and has now had 2 holes in one during an OP36 match and a PGA Junior League match. Blake is always cheering for his playing partners and supporting what they are doing. Blake wants to get better every time he tees it up and we love his passion for the sport."
She continued, “He lives, eats, breathes golf. He is very grateful for the knowledge he has learned through Operation 36. He is a fantastic golfer and so deserving of the one in a million.”
Congratulations Blake! You have a great future in golf ahead of you! We look forward to seeing your continued success on the golf course!
