Snoqualmie, WA (Sports Network) - Jay Don Blake birdied the second playoff
hole Sunday to defeat Mark O'Meara and win the Boeing Classic.
Blake and O'Meara both shot 4-under 68s in the final round and finished
regulation tied at 10-under 206. They had to wait to see if last week's winner
of the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, Willie Wood, could eagle the last. Wood
made birdie and the two were off to the par-5 18th at the TPC Snoqualmie
They parred the 18th the first time around, and Blake birdied it the second
time for the win.
The victory was Blake's third on the Champions Tour. He captured last year's

Wood had a 2-under 70 on Sunday and took third at minus-9.
Last year's winner Mark Calcavecchia (70) and Michael Allen (67) shared fourth
at 8-under par.
It was a tough day for second-round leader Tom Jenkins in his bid for
Champions Tour history. At 64, Jenkins could've become the oldest winner in
tour history, but he struggled to a 6-over 78 and tied for 21st at 3-under
