FORT WORTH, Texas — A few days removed from one of the most compelling storylines of the golf season, Michael Block was still the talk of the town in Rochester, where he made history with a top-15 finish at the PGA Championship.
But the buzz has followed Block to the Dallas Metroplex, where he’s making a surprise appearance at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Block was a late addition to the field after University of Texas star Parker Coody, the grandson of 1971 Masters champ Charles Coody, withdrew from the event.
As he did at Oak Hill, Block endeared himself to the media with stories of his journey, which has included rubbing elbows with sports royalty.
And other PGA Tour players have enjoyed the ride as much as fans. Despite an impressive field at Colonial Country Club that included the likes of Max Homa, Collin Morikawa and Billy Horschel as well as Texas staples Jordan Spieth and Scottie Scheffler, many of the questions — and lengthy answers — have focused on Block and the optimism he brings to the game.
