Blum won the Georgia Amateur Championship five times and qualified for and played in the United States Amateur Championship 16 times. He also was a member of the victorious 1957 United States Walker Cup Team and on five occasions competed in the Masters Tournament.

A.J. "Duck" Swan, Jr.
Memorial Par 3 Course

This par 3 golf course is dedicated to the memory of Albert Jernigan (A.J. "Duck") Swann, Jr. His love for the game of golf and his selfless devotion to the junior golf program at Idle Hour Club were exceeded only by his reputation as a world class golfer. "Duck" was a true gentleman and one of the finest ambassadors the game of golf has ever known. Idle Hour Club was indeed fortunate and honored to have had him as a member and friend.
