SEASIDE, California – Straight off a plane from the US Open in Shinnecock, Michael Block has arrived at the PPC ready to reclaim his title. Block, who won the PPC in 2014 is no stranger to victory. Having claimed the 2017 SCPGA Section Championship title at Bermuda Dunes, he has once again put himself in contention for a win on a big stage. Posting a third round 66, Block sits four strokes off the lead and will be in the hunt during the final round tomorrow.
Follow along on social media as Block aims to take down the title for the second time in his career. Block, whos son Dylan is caddying for him this week, played a pivotal role in saving a stroke after his ball was found lodged under a tree.
