Michael Block’s wife was overcome with emotion when her husband sunk a hole-in-one at the PGA Championship on Sunday.
An eyewitness fan tells The Post exclusively that Val Block “fell to the ground crying” at the 15th hole.
“It was amazing. It was so incredible,” our source shares. “It was like holy s–t.”
Exclusive photos obtained by The Post show Val in front of the Cadillac Chalet hugging and shaking an unknown woman the moment her husband made the unbelievable shot.
“She was literally crying,” the source adds.
Video footage also seen by The Post shows Val collapsing to the ground as she became overwhelmed with excitement and tears.
Block, who is a golf club pro in Mission Viejo, Calif., shocked not only himself but everyone on the green in the Cinderella story moment.
“I didn’t really see it, I knew it was at the pin,” Block said on CBS after his round. “I had no idea it went in. … Then Rory [McIlroy] comes over and gives me a hug. I’m like, ‘Why’s Rory giving me a hug?’
“I really walked down another 20-30 yards and I looked back and him and went, ‘Did that go in the hole?’ because everyone’s going crazy.”
Block became the story of the week in western New York as the only one of 20 PGA professionals in the field to make the cut.
Then Block remained on the fringes of contention throughout the weekend with his ace highlighting the life-changing event for the 46-year-old.
Although Brooks Koepka won the PGA Championship, Block, who placed 15th and earned a $288,333 prize, locked in his place at next year’s tournament after scrambling to make par on the 18th hole.
Next year’s event will take place at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.
He also received invitations to the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club next week and the RBC Canadian Open at Oakdale Golf & Country Club in Toronto.
Following his impressive feat, the golf instructor joked Val is going to demand he “charge more” for his lessons, which are going for $150 a pop.
“I have a feeling my wife is going to make me charge more,” he joked.
Netflix cameras also followed Block throughout the tournament for the next season of “Full Swing,” the PGA Tour docuseries that premiered this year, according to Daniel Rapaport of Barstool Sports,
