Blair O’Neal’s birth, age, childhood, and education
Blair O’Neal was born in Macomb, Illinois on 14 May 1981; her current age is 36 years. After her birth, her family relocated to Arizona and she spent the rest of her childhood in Arizona. When she was 11 years old, Blair’s dad put her and her brother on the local junior golf clinic.
Blair was so fascinated by this sport and game that she did not put down her clubs down after that. Many of her early mornings and most of her childhood afternoons were spent practicing at Dobson Ranch Golf Club in Mesa in Arizona.
In two years time, Blair started playing for the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA). She was quite successful here and was selected for the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup Team in Valderrama, Spain.

Blair’s professional life
Blair after college took to professional golf. She also set her foot into modeling. She played golf in Asia and then did the LPGA Symetra Tour (then known as the LPGA Futures Tour). She suffered some financial crunch and a broken foot and kept her golf at bay for some time.
She walked the ramps, did television hosting, print ads, catalogs, magazine covers, websites, and commercial advertisements. Her height of 5 feet and 9 inches came to her advantage and helped her get a lot of modeling assignments. Her other body measurements are 35-26-35.
After 5 years in 2009, she was invited by the Golf Channel to compete on their reality show called Big Break. With little preparation, she jumped at the chance and was runner-up. In 2010, she again competed and came out as the champion.
