Even with several days to let this accomplishment sink in, to plan his trip to the 2018 U.S. Senior Open, Calgary’s Steve Blake chokes up as he details the moment he realized he had qualified for his first major championship.
“Sorry, just getting emotional a bit ... That tells you how I felt,” Blake said, no apology necessary. “It was just one of those things that I’ve been waiting for so long, you know?
“I was almost in disbelief. When the last numbers went up on the board there, my wife (Kelly) just sort of lost it. It was just ... It was awesome.”
