For golf influencer Paige Spiranac, it seems one of the biggest takeaways from Michael Block’s phenomenal and inspirational performance at the PGA Championship was a perceived lack of romance between him and his wife.
While the entire golfing world wanted Block to rise to glory all the way through the final round at Oak Hill in Rochester, he rode that wave of support to finish tied for 15th in the tournament.
He had several magic moments – including a special hole-in-one slam-dunk on the par-3 15th hole – leading him to automatically qualify for next year’s PGA Championship at Valhalla.
At the end of it all on the 18th green, Block’s wife Val approached him, her arms outstretched, husband and wife hugging.
But on his podcast, Play a trickSpiranac said she felt Block denied his wife a kiss at the time.

‘I’m just saying, if I’m on camera and I go up to my man, and I’m going to hug, and I look up, I’m going to kiss, and they just refuse me a kiss in front of all those people on camera, I’ll talk about that later,’ she said.
“Not just later today, but every day for the rest of our lives until we die. We’ll be lying next to each other on our deathbed and we’ll be like, “Remember that time you didn’t kiss me on camera?” That would be the last thing I would say.
It’s likely Block didn’t think of it at the time, having won the Low Professional title at the tournament and taking home almost $300,000 for his spectacular finish.
“My life has changed, but my life has only changed for the better,” Block said. ‘I have my family. I have my friends. I have people who really love me and care about me here. It was an epic experience.’
He has the chance to earn even more money as he prepares for the Charles Schwab Challenge in Colonial, Texas. Block obtained a sponsor exemption in order to participate in the tournament.
