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.
"I don't know why that makes me emotional but it does."— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) May 19, 2023
Michael Block was brought to tears when he was told he is out in front of Masters champion Jon Rahm.

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.
Can't believe Nantz gave the "from seconds ago" AND "fairytale continues" before ball landed. You hear that and immediately think ace. What is the utility in this? It's entertainment. Let people be surprised!!! Small thing but it bugs the crap out of me. https://t.co/2HS0IUi4be— Dan Rapaport (@Daniel_Rapaport) May 22, 2023
Fans on Twitter discussed this further in the replies to Rapaport's tweet.
Here are some of the replies:
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.
