Paige Spiranac on Michael Block dodging wife's kiss: "That'd be a fight later"

Paige Spiranac says she would not have been happy had she been Michael Block's wife after footage showed the legendary PGA club pro deny his partner's kiss when walking off the 18th green at the US PGA Championship at Oak Hill last Sunday. 

Golf social media sensation Spiranac, 30, admits "there would be a fight later" if Block was her man. 

Block, 46, rose to fame last week after making a spectacular hole-in-one in front of Rory McIlroy en route to finishing T15 at the US PGA. 

It was the best finish by a club pro in the championship since 1986.

He's also received an invite for the RBC Canadian Open next month, and he's booked his place in the field at the 2024 US PGA.

But back to Spiranac's take about Block and his wife Val on her latest episode of the 'Playing-A-Round' podcast. 

Paige admits she would never be able to forgive him for denying a kiss on camera in front of millions of people. 

Spiranac said: 

"I’m just sayin’, if I’m on camera and I’m going up to my man and I’m like going in for a hug and I’m putting my head up going for a kiss and he just denies me a kiss in front of all these people on camera, I would be bringing that up later.
"Not only just later that day. Every single day for the rest of our lives until we die. We’ll, like, be laying next to each other on our deathbeds and I’d be like, ‘remember when you didn’t kiss me on camera?’ That would be the last thing I’d ever say. That would be a fight later."


Who is Michael Block's wife? 

Michael first met his wife Val at a party in Laguna Beach, California. They are said to have immediately hit things off that night, and quickly began dating.

Val moved back to Argentina, where she was born and raised, but then little more than three weeks later she came back to see Michael and that was that. 

Michael and Val are said to have been married for more than 18 years.

They have two children together, Dylan, 18, and Ethan, 16.

Dylan is ready to follow in his father's footsteps as he will be teeing it up in US Open Final Qualifying at Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles on June 5.

His dad Michael will be too as he bids to qualify for the US Open for a third time having previously missed the cut in 2007 and 2018. 

The 2023 US Open takes place at Los Angeles Country Club from June 15-18. 

Michael and Val now live in Mission Viejo, California, and Michael is the head PGA club professional at the nearby Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club.

Val is said to enjoy watching her husband play golf, but she does not play herself. 

"He doesn't have the patience for me," said Val when pressed on whether Michael has given her any golf lessons.
