Blair O’Neal Biography
Blair O'Neal was born May 14, 1981 in Macomb, Illinois and moved to Arizona at the age of two. At an early age Blair enjoyed ballet, jazz and cheer but she discovered at age 11 that golf is her passion and has been enamored with the game since.
At the age of 12, Blair's enjoyment of golf became a passion and her skill for the game was only matched by the focus and determination with which she practiced, all the while hoping to one day don the maroon and gold for Arizona State University and move on to realize her dream of being a professional golfer. With the goals she had set for herself, Blair practiced everyday with her father on the driving range long after sunset. The support from her family was what would catapult her golf career. At 13, she began playing on the American Junior Golf Association during the summer and enjoyed success after success in her junior golf career: a selection on the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup Team in Valderrama, Spain; a selection to AJGA Cannon Cup Team; runner-up in the Woman's Western Tournament; a medalist at the AJGA Ping Phoenix Jr. Championship.
In high school, Blair was a double threat earning high marks in school and adding to her trophy collection on the golf course. She attended Corona del Sol High School, in Tempe, AZ, graduating in 1999. While earning a 3.8 GPA, she was a three-time medalist at the 5A Regional Golf Championship, four-time Golf MVP and the Arizona State Golf Champion in 1998-99. At the age of 17, her long time dream became a reality when she caught the attention of Arizona State University golf coach, Linda Vollstedt, who actively recruited Blair. As a Sun Devil, Blair competed in every golf event held during her four-year college career. She won 2 out of 3 NCAA Long Drive contests, making her one of the longest hitters in college golf.
After graduating as Captain of the golf team and with a degree in Communications (minor in Sociology), she began playing professional golf all over the United States, Japan, Thailand, Korea and China. Golf gave Blair the opportunity to travel the world and encounter many diverse cultures.
Blair became a Professional Golfer in January 2004 and has since she has competed in the West Coast Ladies Golf Tour, the Futures Tour and two events with the Orient Masters in China. In the summer of 2007, she was selected by Nike to teach with the Nike Golf School in San Diego, CA. In addition to being a professional golfer, the 5'10 blonde is represented by FORD Models and Sports Unlimited Talent who have presented her the opportunity to model on runways, print ads, catalogs, magazine covers, websites and commercial advertisements all over the U.S. and Asia.
In 2008 Blair was named by SPORTS ILLUSTRATED One of the Hottest 50 Athletes of All-Time. Shortly after she gained votes from millions of web users, InGameNow.com, and Sports Illustrated in the World's Hottest Athlete contest in which she was voted into the Final Four among some of the greatest female athletes of our time.
Her most recent venture will be airing on GOLF CHANNEL May, 2009. She is one of the newest selected cast members to compete on BIG BREAK: PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND!
Blair is a dedicated athlete with the looks and the personality that will brighten anyone's day. Her competitiveness and drive to be the best at what she loves is what makes her a truly unique individual equally gifted on the golf course and the runway.
