In 2009, Blaum qualified for the U.S. Open and missed the cut by a single stroke, this was his only appearance in a major championship until 2014 when he again played in the U.S. Open and failed to make the cut.
In his early professional career, Blaum mainly played on U.S. mini-tours although he did make occasional appearances on the PGA Tour and Nationwide Tour with a best finish of tied for 15th at the Puerto Rico Open on the PGA Tour in 2008.
