WATCH: Golfer’s Unbelievable Hole in One Shot

If you are a golf fan, you must have seen the incredible shot that pro golfer Michael Block pulled off at the PGA Championship on Sunday. Block, who works as a head PGA professional and golf instructor at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo, California, made a hole-in-one on the 15th hole, a par-3 that measures 181 yards. His ball flew straight into the cup, without bouncing or hitting the pin, and caused so much damage that the hole had to be repaired by the officials.

Block’s ace was the first by a PGA club pro at the PGA Championship since 1996, and it earned him a hug from his playing partner Rory McIlroy, who was equally stunned by the feat. Block finished the tournament tied for 15th place with a score of 1-over 281, which was the best result by a club pro in the event’s history. He also secured invitations to two more PGA events next year, and a potentially life-changing payout of $288,000.

Block’s story is an inspiration for all golfers who dream of competing with the best in the world. He entered the tournament as a mostly unknown player, but he quickly became a crowd favorite with his confident shot-making and humble attitude. He said that making a cut at a major tournament was one of his bucket list dreams, and he achieved it with flying colors.

“Block made his way to the hole and the crowd never let up. The cheers were deafening, and he couldn’t shake the smile off his face,” according to Fox News. “Block has been a fan favorite all week as he became the only Tour pro who qualified for the major to make the cut, while many struggled at the difficult course.”

“Entering Sunday, Block was in a position to win $500,000, which he gets to cash being a certified pro. The most he said he ever made golfing was $75,000,” added the outlet. “With the hole-in-one, Block is tied 14th as his final round – one of the most memorable and feel-good stories at a major championship – is coming to an end.”
