Block Cashes In at Morongo

Block Cashes In at Morongo

 The Southern California PGA returned to the Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon for the second TPS of the season on May 18, 2015.  The Champions course was in fantastic shape, and proved to be a challenge to many of the competitors.  After the morning round Gary Sowinski, PGA, carded a spectacular score of 67 to hold a two shot lead going into the afternoon round.  Only a few shots back was Michael Block, PGA, and he used the afternoon round to prove to his fellow PGA members why he is one of the (if not the) best player in the Southern California section.  The scorecard for Block’s afternoon round was impressive, which included an eagle (on a par 4) and six birdies, for a total of 67.  His afternoon round propelled him into first place, and the overall champion of the event.  Congratulations, and great playing Michael!
