PGA Championship: Michael Block makes quadruple bogey on second hole

Highlights: PGA Championship, Round 1
Relive the biggest moments and best shots from first-round action at the 2024 PGA Championship, taking place at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.

Michael Block surprised the golf world with his 2023 run at Oak Hill, tying for 15th to earn a return trip to the PGA Championship.

In August, the California club professional got a sneak peek at this year’s site, Valhalla Golf Club, and tied the course record with a 63.

His play Thursday in Louisville, Kentucky, wasn’t as pleasant — at least, not from the start. Block bogeyed the first hole and then made a quadruple-bogey 8 at the par-4 second.


As you can see from the graphic above, it was quite the struggle around the green for Block at No. 2. To his credit, he made birdie on the par-4 fourth and played his final 16 holes in even par.

Five over through two holes, Block shot 5-over 76 and is well outside the projected cut line.
