Blackmar played on mini-tours for a few years before earning his 1985 PGA Tour card by finishing second at the 1984 qualifying school. He won three PGA Tour events, all in playoffs: 1985 Canon Sammy Davis Jr.-Greater Hartford Open, 1988 Provident Classic, and 1997 Shell Houston Open.

After turning 50 in September 2007, Blackmar began playing on the Champions Tour. He won his first Champions Tour event in 2009 at the AT&T Championship by one stroke over three players. He went 36 holes bogey-free over the weekend in San Antonio, Texas.
