Michael Block gets a HUGE money offer for his “hole-in-one” 7-iron



On Sunday at the 2023 PGA Championship, Michael Block made a historic hole-in-one on the 15th hole, alongside playing partner Rory McIlroy, using a TaylorMade Tour Preferred MC 7-iron.

Thanks to his T15 finish, stellar play, charismatic performance, and Cinderella storyline, he was also invited to play in the Charles Schwab Challenge this week at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas (he also got invited to the RBC Canadian Open, and the Omega European Masters).

I caught up with Block on Tuesday in Texas following his dream PGA Championship week to find out more about his equipment setup, and he revealed he currently has a $50,000 offer for the 7-iron that he hit the hole-in-one with. He has many money offers, actually, but $50,000 is the highest so far. He also said the PGA of America wants the iron to display, but he said he’s not yet sure what he’ll do with it.

For now, it’s still in the bag at this week’s 2023 Charles Schwab Challenge, and it has a dimed-out face from 10 years of use.

Here’s what else he had to say on Tuesday when speaking with GolfWRX:

“I know what they’re gonna do. Period. It’s not because they go further. It has nothing to do with anything. I’ve played a whole bunch of other TaylorMade irons. The new MC’s. They feel great and everything else, but these, as you can see with most of my irons and my wedges – my putter’s over 20 years old – once I have something that I know what it’s gonna do, especially under these circumstances under pressure. When there’s pressure, you need to know exactly what’s gonna happen, and every time I’ve ever tried to put new things in under pressure, it’s failed. 

“I did (put the lead tape on my irons myself). It was about maybe 4 or 5 years ago. They were just starting to feel a little light, and maybe all the grooves were worn off, I don’t know. But they started to feel light in my hands. And I do it so randomly. If you look at my putter, if you look inside my putter, I mean it is random how I put lead tape on my clubs. But I’m a feel guy. You can see my swing. I’m super feel. They’ve been good. (I’ve had them in the bag) since about 2013. No (I haven’t changed irons since). 

On what he likes to see and feel in his irons and wedges:

“Greg Cesario from TaylorMade works with me on the MG and all the wedges. He’s always ground down all my irons (and wedges) because I like the topline to look thin and then I like the sole to be on the thinner side rather than having too much bounce.”

He said the welcome has been amazing upon arrival at Colonial, too.

“This is my first time on property, and I get one practice round because I’m not in the pro-am tomorrow. So one practice round and rock-and-roll, which honestly for me is kind of perfect. I’m still living the dream. Annika Sorenstam just wanted to come up and meet me, all the pros are coming up and congratulating me. I mean, the guy making my omelette gave me a high five. The guys at the entrance started yelling ‘Block party’ as I’m driving away. I get the chills even talking about it.”

    Life changing week for Block. Seems like a pretty down to earth dude who definitely had the week of his life, one to remember at least. The hole-in-one then up-and-down on 18 was just icing on the cake. Incredible finish!

SPOTTED: New Titleist 2023 T-Series irons at the Memorial Tournament (T-100, T-150, T-200, T-350 and U-505)



On Monday at the 2023 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village, we spotted five new Titleist iron models, including new T-100, T-150, T-200, T-350 and U-505 irons for 2023.

Since the irons are just now becoming available for PGA Tour players to test, Titleist is not yet providing information on design, technological improvements, or retail details.

However, is on site this week to get a first look at the irons, and observe initial testing sessions. We’ll update you with PGA Tour player feedback and first reactions later in the week.

For now, we have photos of each new Titleist iron model below – each model appears to have both a chrome version and a black version available for the launch. More photos of the entire lineup can be found in our GolfWRX Forums here.
