PGA Tour star who made misconstrued Rory McIlroy comment is making career switchSee details below ⬇️

Michael Block made a name for himself when playing alongside Rory McIlroy at last year’s PGA Championship, and the American has now set his sights on a career changePGA Championship fan favourite Michael Block has set his sights on turning to senior golf, and earning a spot on the PGA Tour Champions.Block rose to fame at last year’s PGA Championship, when the club professional finished in a tie for 15th at Oak Hill Country Club. He infamously made an incredible slam-dunk hole-in-one at the par-three 15th during his final round where he was paired with four-time major champion Rory McIlroy.

Since then the teaching professional has competed in a whole host of PGA Tour events – including his return to the PGA Championship in May. At 48 however, the American is now keen to make the step into senior golf.Speaking with Bunkered, Block admitted he was finding it difficult to keep up with the current crop of stars, and was instead keen on turning the Champions Tour.

“I’d consider the Champions Tour in about a year-and-a-half,” he commented. “The kids now are so good and the scores they’re shooting out there are unbelievable.”

These young kids are unreal, and I want nothing to do with them. I’m more than happy to play the occasional events and the majors, I love what I do, but I have my eyes set on the Champions Tour. At age 49 I can start to qualify and then the day I turn 50 I can play.“My wife pretty much has an ultimatum that I have to do it.

Eventually, I see myself retiring at 55 because I’d love to give the Champions Tour a go for five years.” It has not been all simple during his time in the limelight, after Block raised eyebrows with his comments on McIlroy.
