I’ve seen the hats, I’ve seen the tweets. But it’s tough to find out what “The Buck Club” actually is because, well, it doesn’t exist.
Zac Blair is a second year pro on Tour from Utah, who played collegiately at BYU. I’m not going to lie, that’s all I know about him. But all you have to do to learn a little more is visit his Twitter page: https://twitter.com/z_blair?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
Zac has found a winning formula on Twitter – a balance of life on Tour, his comments on golf architecture, and, oh yeah, his golf course design project in his home state of Utah – “The Buck Club.”
Within minutes of scrolling down his timeline of tweets, Blair became my new favorite “follow” in golf. Actually just in general. The best par is that the dude isn’t classically trained. He’s relatable, posting pictures of his ideas and designs on paper. His dad was a Tour player and has designed and built some nine-holers in Utah, which seems to have given him the bug at a young age (this and other things I learned from a sweet profile piece by The Fried Egg: http://www.friedegg.co/golf-courses/building-the-buck-club-the-idea)
Normally, players that have long since retired from the game are designing courses. This guy is a second year pro! It’s inspiring to see that he is following both of his passions under the same umbrella of golf. Social media can be powerful, and being able to follow his career and passion projects in detail from my phone is really enjoyable.
Looking forward to playing The Buck Club.
