During his adolescence, he played golf in Bellerive at the Bellerive Country Club 2 miles (3.2 km) from his home, before graduating from Parkway Central High School in Chesterfield, Missouri, in 1994.

He attended Mississippi State University and the University of Missouri–St. Louis, playing college golf at both, before receiving a degree in golf course management from the San Diego Golf Academy.

Block was the assistant club professional at The Lakes Country Club in Palm Desert, California, from 1998 until 2004, before becoming head club professional at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo, California, where he charged $150/hour for lessons.

Michael Block, 46, slam dunked his shot off the 15th tee alongside Rory McIlroy, who hugged him and had to assure him it really went right in the hole.

“That’s a brutal hole because you can’t miss it right or left. Rory had just gone right before me and got a horrible kick, was in a really tough position,” Block told “Good Morning America,” reflecting on the tee shot less than 24 hours later. “I knew I had to hit a pretty good shot there.”

He continued, “I didn’t see it go in and all of a sudden Rory turns around and he starts walking back at me with his arms open to give me a hug. I’m like, ‘Why in the world is Rory McIlroy giving me a hug right now — did it go in?’ He goes, ‘Yeah, Block, it went in!’ I couldn’t believe it. To have it happen under those circumstances, coming down the stretch on the back nine on a Sunday in the PGA Championship with Rory McIlroy was an experience I’ll never have again in my life and I’m gonna enjoy it.”

Michael Block’s wife was overcome with emotion when her husband sunk a hole-in-one at the PGA Championship on Sunday.

“It was amazing. It was so incredible,” our source shares, “It was like holy s–t.”

Exclusive photos obtained by The Post show Val in front of the Cadillac Chalet hugging and shaking an unknown woman the moment her husband made the unbelievable shot.

“She was literally crying,” the source adds.

Video footage also seen by The Post shows Val collapsing to the ground as she became overwhelmed with excitement and tears.

The PGA Championship made plenty of headlines, with club pro Michael Block pulling off one of the best stories in recent memory.

Block proceeded to have a busy week full of interviews and the like, all the while as he prepared for the Charles Schwab Challenge. Block even admitted he received a text message from Michael Jordan, so it’s safe to say his week went well.

Block, 46, received an invite into this week’s PGA Tour event off the back of his T15 at the US PGA Championship last week.

That was the best finish of any PGA pro in the championship’s history since 1986. 

But despite being full of confidence heading into the first round at Colonial, Block very much came back down to earth with a disastrous 11-over 81. 

That leaves him in last place of the 120 players in the field. Block opened with three straight bogeys, and despite responding with a birdie at the par-3 4th instantly gave it back with another bogey on the 5th. 

The American made the turn with a birdie on the par-4 9th when nearly holing out for eagle but that was to be his final highlight of the day.

Block bogeyed 11, 12 and 13 and then went double-double on 15 and 16 to fall to 9-over par.

On the 15th, Block chunked a wedge into the bunker and then skulled his next shot over the back of the green. 


Block was born on June 15, 1976, in Reno, Nevada, growing up first in Davenport, Iowa, and then the St. Louis area of Missouri.
