Kyle Blaser has made history guiding the Oklahoma City University men’s golf team. This past year Blaser led the Stars to their ninth NAIA championship, prevailing by 28 strokes over Texas Wesleyan at Creekside Golf Club in Salem, Ore. Blaser has won more NAIA men’s golf championships than any coach (nine). He has been the NAIA national coach of the year eight times, also the most ever by anyone. OCU has also won 11 regional titles and 16 Sooner Athletic Conference championships in 16 seasons under Blaser.
In his time at OCU, Blaser has coached five NAIA individual champions and national players of the year, one NAIA individual runner-up, 62 all-Americans, and three Phil Mickelson award winners as NAIA freshman of the year.
Since arriving at Oklahoma City in December 1997, Blaser has guided the Stars to 14 top-10 finishes in the NAIA Championships.
OCU started its women’s program in 2000-01, and the Stars immediately became a powerhouse under Blaser’s guidance. OCU finished as NAIA runner-up and captured nine tournament titles, including the NAIA Region VI and SAC championships. Two women’s golfers became all-Americans.
In 2006, Blaser led the nation’s top junior golfers in the World Junior Golf Cup in Japan.
Blaser coached at Jenks High School (Okla.) in 1996. In his tenure there, Jenks won the conference title, regional title and Class 5A state championship. In 1996, Blaser was named Oklahoma Golf Coaches Association Regional Representative.
Blaser and his wife Krista have sons named Blake (12), Carson (9) and Chase (4).
