Michael Block makes incredible bridge escape at Charles Schwab Challenge, but finishes first round in last place

The Michael Block spell hasn’t completely ended since the end of the PGA Championship, but he didn’t have much of it on Thursday.

Four days after finishing a T15 performance at Oak Hill – which included a hole-in-one – the 46-year-old teaching pro competed in the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas on a sponsor exemption. He did not perform again in the first round, although he did have at least a few moments.

Block started with three straight bogeys, then came from about a yard away by hitting another hole-in-one on the fourth hole at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.

Six holes later, Block was in a tight spot when a 277-yard drive settled over a bridge on the far right side of the fairway. Block somehow made the save, starting with an incredible getaway from the bridge that landed just short of the green.

that was nice.

The bad came the rest of the back nine, in which Block finished bogey, bogey, bogey, par, double bogey, double bogey, par, double bogey to finish the round +11 and finish last by four strokes. Rory Sabbatini was in last place at +7.

Speaking to reporters after the round, Block’s approach was balanced:

“It’s one of those golf days. If you play golf, you know exactly what happened. So I really don’t need to explain it too much, because if you’re a golfer, you pass is the day that i did. you understand the facts where lies are no good and trees are in your way every time. even your good shots are bad, your bad shots are bad , etcetera.

“It is what it is. I’m going to live with it. I thought it was going to be the third or fourth round last week at Oak Hill, and it never happened. It happened now, and I’m not surprised.” , To tell you the truth.”

In terms of total numbers, it was not an impressive performance from the block, which has already received a lot of recognition. He probably won’t spend the final round playing with a major champion like Rory McIlroy. But for a guy who qualified for last week’s tournament through qualifiers for club professionals and made his first major cut 16 years after his first appearance, any more moments in the sun are a fine sight to see in such a game. who loves every man.
