Michael Block expressed unshakable confidence despite finishing last at Charles Schwab


Michael Block had a rollercoaster during the week.

From enjoying the moment of the year with his aces at Oak Hill to getting messages from Michael Jordan, Block feels like he’s living a dream.

However, his dream week was cut short by his performance at the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas.

Block, paired with Pierceson Coody and Min Woo Lee for the first two rounds, opened with an 11-over par 81 on Thursday, which put him in last place after the first day of play.

Michael Block, who displayed a very agreeable attitude during his time in the PGA Championship, echoed this sentiment again on Thursday.

But he also made some confident statements in the post-round presser, echoing his statement when he compared his game to that of Rory McIlroy.

“I’m looking forward to getting out [Friday], played a great round, and gave it my all,” added Block. “I have shot 58 and 59 in my life. Because of what I have today, I wouldn’t be surprised if I did, so.”

Despite having a tough round, he still took high-level shots from the bridge, showing his creativity.

Unfortunately for the Southern California club pros, he barely shot sub-60 in the second half. He sits at 3-over for the day and 14-over for the tournament with three holes remaining. That’s five hits worse than anyone on the court. But that’s where his relatable self appears before Friday’s round.

“That’s what it is,” added Block. “I sat there and thought about it; I said, I will see my boy [Friday] Evening. I’ll be cheering for my kids and wife tomorrow night in Orange County, California, so all good.
