TOUGH TO SAY GOODBYE
8:45 a.m. • Saturday, Aug. 10
The second member of this week's trip to the U.S. Amateur Championship is getting ready to leave Houston, although some rain in the area may be slowing that down a bit.

Associate head coach Chris Hill, who will serve as Blair's caddy this week, flew out of Houston this morning and his scheduled to arrive in Boston around 12:30 p.m. (EDT).

As excited as he is to work with Blair at one of the nation's top amateur events, the hard part was saying goodbye to his family, which includes wife Alyssa, son Graham, who was born in late June, and their dog Lucy. You can see more of Lucy on her Facebook page.

FROM ONE END TO THE OTHER
9:40 p.m. • Friday, Aug. 9
Friday was a long day for Blair. He woke up early Friday morning to compete in the final round at the Canadian Amateur Championship, played at Royal Colwood Golf Club in Victoria, B.C., Canada, located northwest of Seattle, Wash.

With a final-round 69, Blair jumped into a tie for 22nd at 287, putting two Cougars among the top 25. Teammate Wesley McClain used a 67 on Friday to move into a tie for 15th at 285. FINAL RESULTS

Following Friday's round, Blair headed to the airport for a flight to Toronto and then a connecting flight to Boston. That's a total trip of more than 3,200 miles and across three time zones, so Blair won't get into Boston until early Saturday morning.

After catching up on some sleep, he will catch up with his caddy, UH Associate Head Coach Chris Hill, and enjoy practice rounds Saturday and Sunday in Brookline, Mass.

WELCOME

The Canadian Amateur Championship is over. Now, sophomore Blair Hamilton is on his way to compete at the U.S. Amateur Championship in Brookline, Mass. Keep up with Blair and Houston Men's Golf Associate Head Coach/Caddy Chris Hill here at Blair's Blog.

It's an exciting time for Houston Men's Golf, and Blair's appearance at the U.S. Amateur is certainly part of that.
