Michael Block dunks a hole-in-one at the 2023 PGA Championship

2023 PGA Championship

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Michael Block’s fairytale week keeps getting better.

The 46-year-old club pro aced the 151-yard par-3 15th hole at Oak Hill on Sunday. Block, who was playing alongside Rory McIlroy, sent his tee shot into the air at “Plateau,” the shortest hole on the course and dunked it.

“No, no way,” he said as the crowd erupted. “Are you kidding me? I’ll cause that delay anytime.”

Block, who teaches at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo, California, was the only club pro to make the 36-hole cut this week.

McIlroy smiled widely and slapped Block’s hand and gave him a congratulatory bear hug and tap to the belly.

It is the 29th ace in the PGA Championship since 1983.

The hole-in-one lifted Block back to even par for the day and the tournament.

Block’s home club had dozens of eyes glued to the CBS telecast and the remote celebration went crazy after the ace.
