There will be no weekend party at the Colonial for Michael Block, the club professional who left an indelible mark on the PGA Championship last week.
‘Block’ party over for sensational PGA Champs club pro
Michael Block walked out after signing his scorecard at Colonial with his cap turned backward, his shirt untucked and still with a smile on his face after a gruelling 36 holes and being at the bottom of the 120-player field.
A week after the club pro from California became a sensation for everyday golfers by finishing tied for 15th in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, Block was looking forward to finally getting home and playing with his black Labrador in the backyard.
Only then, he said, would he be able to fully exhale and reflect on how much his life has changed in the past week.
“I’m not trying to do anything, period. I’m just playing golf,” the 46-year-old Block said. “That’s what I know to do.”
