In an interview with Golf Monthly, Michael Block revealed why he does not want to play on the PGA Tour. This great golfer is not satisfied with his form and is currently focused on some other things. Probably some performances were frustrating for him.

He believes that he cannot show his top level at the moment. "I didn’t want to have to make six-footers to pay for my bills. I am happier being the head teaching pro at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in California than trying to make it on the PGA Tour."- Block said.

The First Cut podcast was an opportunity for him to talk about his experience on the PGA Tour. Although he gave his maximum during the competition and was at his peak, it was still not enough for more than 15th place.

He put a special emphasis on PGA Tour golfers who are really top-notch in their work. Block seems impressed with the level at which individuals are playing. "I rolled the rock better than I have did in my life. I hit short game shots I never hit in my life, I hit my irons great, I hit driver down the fairway, and I struggled to finish 15th.

That's how good these guys on the tour are. That's 14 guys still beat me, and I brought my A+ game all around. So, that's why I'm not on the PGA Tour. " His ambitions have always been to achieve victories. He does not want to be part of a competition if he has no chance of achieving the success he dreams of.

"I don't want to be that guy, I don't want to have my A+ game and still finish 15th. If I have my A+ game against club professionals, I'm going to win." Source: Golfmonthly
