Michael Block continues to score highlights on the golf course, and his latest pitch was unveiled in front of the sport’s newest ambassadors, music mogul DJ Khaled.
Khaled has fallen in love with golf and has used his global reach to host a highly anticipated celebrity golf tournament on July 20 with his We The Best Foundation.
Khaled told Fox News Digital earlier this month that Block, who wowed golf fans everywhere with his performance at the 2023 PGA Championship in Oak Hill, was among those who traveled to Miami for his tournament. . Looks like they’ll be partners on Thursday when it starts.

During what appeared to be a practice round on Tuesday, Block holed an approach shot onto the green right in front of Khaled, who fumed when the ball went into the hole.

After Block’s pinpoint wedge caused an uproar on the pitch, Khaled jumped into his arms to celebrate the moment.
Block can be heard saying, «Should save that for the tournament, huh?»
But Khaled responded with his trademark positivity, saying: «It’s going to happen again.»
Khaled has been on a golf journey like no other as he plays every day and continues to strive for greatness.
«Golf is a beautiful sport,» he recently told Fox News Digital. «Golf is like life: it’s not easy, but it’s beautiful. Every day, you try to perfect [your game]. You are fighting with yourself to get bigger and bigger every day on the course. It’s a special addiction because just because of the way you hit the ball and you get that sound, you want to keep getting the same love every time you hit the ball.
«I loved it as a kid, but now it’s a full-time thing for me. You have to add golfer next to my name now because I’m a real golfer now.»
He said he wanted to turn pro, but since that’s not likely to happen, he’s making sure the big games get their competitive juices flowing.
That’s what Block has been successful at this year, surprising the world with his T-15 final at Oak Hill, allowing him to be exempt from qualifying for the PGA Championship next year.

In his final round with teammate Rory McIlroy that Sunday, he made a hole-in-one while flashing his soft hands around the green with his wedge that resulted in his storybook finish.
Since then, Block has been invited to tournaments with sponsor exemptions, while only missing out on qualifying for the US Open at Los Angeles Country Club. And while he hasn’t had the same success he did at Oak Hill, he’s a fan favorite that golf lovers like Khaled want to see on the course.
