It is said that all good things have to end. This statement seems to be a great representation of Michael Block the 46-year old professional who charmed all with his play at PGA Championships. He has not been able to repeat his heroics and on Monday he did not qualify for the US Open Championship.
Block had to finish in the top three places to qualify for the tournament. He finished sixth and did not punch his ticket for Los Angeles. Block’s rounds of 69, and 66 were good enough but not on this occasion. He took part in the qualifying process along with his son Dylan.
Block, who had become a popular fan in recent weeks was trying to get into the prestigious event. After receiving an invitation, Block will still be part of the RBC Canadian Open despite his failure to qualify. He also had a son who made it to final round, but he too was disappointed.
Does the Cinderella tale of Michael Block come to an end?
Cinderella’s story is well-known. It is not uncommon for sports fans to associate the story of Cinderella with a player or a team who achieves something beyond their wildest expectations. Michael Block performed at the Oak Hills County Club, Rochester.
Block, a professional club golfer, stunned the crowd with his impressive display. He made some amazing shots and even managed to make a hole-in one that sent shockwaves through the crowd. On the final day, he was paired up with Rory McIlroy. Block was able to finish in the top 15 and maintain his position.
Most people did not expect him to make it through the first round. Later, his presentation at the PGA Championships received a lot of praise. It is wrong to criticize his failure by pointing at him. Block, who isn’t a full-time pro, may have raised expectations by his play. It will be fascinating to see if he can produce some of his best performances again at the RBC Canadian Open.
