SNOQUALMIE, Wash. - Jay Don Blake won the Boeing Classic on Sunday for his third Champions Tour title, beating Mark O'Meara with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff.
Playing the par-5 18th hole for the third time in less than an hour, Blake tapped in for birdie after O'Meara's 15-foot birdie attempt missed on the low side of the hole. Blake and O'Meara also birdied the hole in regulation for matching 4-under 68s that left them tied at 10-under 206. They missed short birdie putts on the first extra hole.
O'Meara pulled his second shot on the 498-yard, uphill hole, into the rough left of the green and his pitch checked up short. Blake went into the rough behind the green with his second shot, but his pitch nearly went in.
Blake won twice last year on the 50-and-over tour.
The playoff marked the fourth time in eight years that the event has gone to extra holes.
Willie Wood, coming off his first tour victory last week in New York in the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, had a 70 finish a stroke back.
