The best story in golf this weekend finishes it off in fine fashion. PGA teaching pro Michael Block landed a hole-in-one on the fly in the final round of the PGA Championship on Hole 15.

What a shot and what a story. https://t.co/UCBP6w5Q0J pic.twitter.com/bssxAc1AyO
Block, who was paired with Rory McIlroy on Sunday, nailed the 155-yard par-3 in one of the most historic aces in PGA Championship history. The PGA Championship includes 20 PGA teaching pros in the field each year, and while they will occasionally make the cut, Block’s current T14 placement is unprecedented for golfers at this level.
On weekends that he isn’t playing at the PGA Championship, the 46-year-old offers golf lessons at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo, California. The crowd went wild at the sight of the hole-in-one, which pulled him to even for the weekend with three holes left to play.
Block is currently beating Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, and Jordan Spieth, among others.
