MONTREAL, Quebec — It wasn’t easy, but after a one-hole playoff with Corey Pereira, Blake Olson captured his first career Mackenzie Tour victory after firing a 67 at the Mackenzie Investments Open presented by Jaguar Laval at Elm Ridge Country Club, his second-best number of the week.
With the win, Olson moves all the way up from spot No. 42 on the Order of Merit to eighth, giving him an opportunity to move into The Five next week at the Freedom 55 Financial Championship.
“I said earlier in the week when asked about my goals that I was trying to get into the top 10,” said the Pensacola, FL native. “This win does that, but by no means am I secure, so I need to go have a good week next week and see where things stack up.”
