Michael Block took the golf world by storm at the 2023 PGA Championship after a T-15 finish at Oak Hill.
The club pro at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, in Mission Viejo, California, had a week to remember in Rochester, New York. Between playing with Rory McIlroy in the final round of a major, a hole-in-one and one of the best up-and-downs we’ve seen in recent history, Block is one of the biggest names in the game at the moment.
After his performance at Oak Hill, the sponsor invites came flooding in and resulted in Block changing his flight back home to California to Fort Worth, Texas, to play at Colonial.
The golf world should know that Block is no flash in the pan. He’s played in over 25 PGA Tour events including two U.S. Opens and five PGA Championships. Block also won Southern California PGA Player of the Year honors nine times between 2012 and 2022.
His T-15 at Oak Hill not only netted him a couple of sponsor invites, but it also gave him an exemption into the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. Until then, let’s all enjoy the Block party.
