LOS ANGELES, CA (September 26, 2023) — Congratulations to Michael Block, PGA, of Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, on securing his second major championship of the season, taking home the trophy for the Southern California Match Play Championship at Wilshire Country Club.
The hot streak continues for Block, as he won both his matches in the semi-final round and final round in extra holes. He beat Kenny Pigman in the semifinals on the 19th hole and secured the championship in a playoff against Vinnie Poncino.
With the win today, Block earns an exemption into the PGA TOUR’S World Wide Technology Championship in Cabo San Lucas on Nov. 2-5.

A big thank you to Rick Rielly, PGA, the Director of Golf at Wilshire Country Club, for hosting this event, and the Wilshire Country Club members for allowing us to conduct the semifinals and final matches on the course today.
