Michael Block‘s magical run at the PGA Championship came to an close on Sunday afternoon, but the 46-year old PGA Head Professional’s journey is just beginning as he got the call from Colonial Country Club with an invitation to accept the final sponsor’s exemption into the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth.
“I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity,” Block said in a video posted on the PGA of America and PGA Tour social media outlets. “Someone once told me that Colonial sets up pretty good for an old pro like me.”
“I look forward to transferring my tickets to Fort Worth-Dallas tomorrow and coming to you guys rather than Orange County,” Block continued. “If you could talk to my boss and tell him I won’t be at work next week…I look forward to making that exemption a huge value to your tournament.”
Block will join a stellar field at the Charles Schwab Challenge that also includes world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Viktor Hovland, Max Homa, Collin Morikawa, Rickie Fowler, Tony Finau, defending champion Sam Burns and past Colonial champions Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson and Justin Rose.
