OT a David and Goliath story of sorts, Golf

Block is a club pro in Southern CA.


When Block looked ahead toward the weekend, he admitted that being paired with someone like Rory McIlroy or Jon Rahm would “be kind of huge for me.” Then a reporter pointed out that he was six strokes ahead of Rahm at the time, and tears began to well up in Block’s eyes.

“Pretty cool, to say the least,” Block said. “I don’t know why that makes me emotional, but it does. Sorry, Jon.”
