Self-taught Golfer Jane Blalock’s Accidental Journey Through the Amateur, Professional Ranks

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Without the game of golf, Jane Blalock doesn’t know where she would have ended up.

She was a natural athlete, and probably would have played softball or basketball if the opportunities existed at the time. But the fact that she didn’t have choices in other sports is ultimately why she ended up choosing golf. To this day, she still considers her journey through the amateur and professional ranks as accidental.

Jane Blalock knew she was good at golf, but never really saw it as a long-term career. She began a job in education—until one conversation with her mom changed her mind. At that point it was decided she never wanted to go through life not trying something; she was going to give professional golf a try. She packed up for Florida to start golf lessons and the rest is history.

After receiving Rookie of the Year in her inaugural LPGA season, Jane Blalock’s career continued to soar. She still holds the record for most consecutive cuts made on a professional golf tour at 299.

Today, Jane Blalock continues to make an impact through various philanthropic initiatives and the KPMG Women’s PGA Golf Clinics, a nationwide series of one-day golf clinics held in a dozen major U.S. markets to provide best in class fundamentals and on-course instruction to female executives.
