Golf fans have been discussing whether Jim Nantz may have spoiled Michael Block's incredible hole-in-one from Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship

Block is a PGA professional who currently works in California. He stunned the golf world with an inspiring performance at Oak Hill.

Not only did the 46-year-old shoot back-to-back rounds of even-par 70 to make the cut, he followed that up with a weekend ace en-route to the biggest pay day of his life. 

His fairytale story continued when it was confirmed he was playing his final round alongside Rory McIlroy

This, again, resulted in another emotional reaction:

And on Sunday, in a too-good-to-be-true moment, Block slam-dunked a hole-in-one on the par-3 15th. 

And now, fans are speculating whether Nantz spoiled this moment by alluding to it in the call. 

As Barstool Sports' Dan Rapaport points out, Nantz said "from seconds ago" and "fairytale continues" ahead of the ace. 

Fans on Twitter discussed this further in the replies to Rapaport's tweet. 

Here are some of the replies:

"Completely agree. He should've let the moment speak for itself and let it breathe. Far from the worst call I've ever heard though."
"Exactly what I was thinking when I watched it."
"Same thing I was thinking, just let it happen, then after it happens say this was from moments ago…"
"Disagree. In my opinion, it was perfectly delivered."
"Jim Nantz needs to be replaced. He's always going for the big moment to narrate and cares more about himself in that moment rather than the fan. It's been very apparent for some time now."
"Imagine thinking that you know more about how to deliver sports commentary than Jim Nantz."
"Agreed, but also gave me goose bumps watching it the first time. It sort of made the first watch all the more exciting."

Block's fairytale is still going as he's since been invited to both next week's Charles Schwab Challenge and the RBC Canadian Open in June.
