Arroyo Trabuco’s own PGA Head Professional, Michael Block, won the 2022 PGA Professional Player of the Year award presented by Rolex.
“This was one of my last bucket list dreams. That’s why I made it a priority to make it to Florida to seal it up. Once I did have the lead, I didn’t want to lose it again as I had in the past by not playing in the Tournament Series events. I have a very supportive management at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club. There’s no way I could have done this and been gone as much as I am from home if I didn’t have my wife and kids’ support as well.” Michael Block said.
Earlier in 2022 Block also won Southern California PGA Player of the Year and his third Southern California PGA Professional Championship. He played in the 30th PGA Cup in Surrey, England and helped the U.S. Team win the Cup for the first time since 2009. And in December, he won Event No. 3 in the PGA Tournament Series.
Since 1984, this award has been presented to the player with the most point earned from January 1 through December 31 of that year.
