Michael Block finishes LAST at Charles Schwab Challenge

PGA club pro Michael Block slumped to last place as he bowed out of the Charles Schwab Challenge after two rounds at famed Colonial. 

Block, 46, carded a shocking 11-over 81 in the first round and then followed it up with a somewhat improved 4-over 74 in Friday's second round. 

It all added up to a lacklustre 15-over par total, leaving him bottom of the pile in 120th place.

Block started on the 10th in the second round and opened with three pars.

He then doubled the par-3 13th, his fourth hole of the day, but then bounced back with a birdie on the 18th to go out in 36 shots.

Block made another birdie on the 1st to get it back to level for the round, but then the wheels came off once more with a double at the 2nd followed by a bogey at the 3rd. 

He calmed things down with four straight pars but would make another bogey on the par-3 8th en route to a round of 4-over 74.

Block received an invite into this week's PGA Tour event as a result of his T15 at the US PGA Championship.

He played with Rory McIlroy in the final round at Oak Hill and went on to pick up a cheque for $288,000.

But there is to be no pay cheque for Block this week as he is packing his bags early out of Texas.

Block will next be back in PGA Tour action at the RBC Canadian Open in two weeks' time. 

He received an invite by RBC into that one. 

Block is also qualified for next year's US PGA Championship as a result of his T15 at Oak Hill. 

Elsewhere on day two of the Charles Schwab Challenge, Harris English surged into contention with a stunning hole-in-one on the 8th.
