A few yards away from the green, Block pulled out a wedge and flipped a shot out of the rough and landing near the cup before rolling in.

Khaled, elated by his teammate’s success, couldn’t help himself and jumped into Block’s arms.

The PGA Championship’s low professional winner pumped his fist at the result, pleased with his effort on just the first hole of the practice round.

Block’s son, Dylan – an accomplished golfer in his own right, who took place in US Open qualifying, is also taking part in the event.

Further videos on Khaled’s Instagram page showed Block gifting the popular social media star and award winning rap producer merch from the PGA Championship.

Khaled was gifted with a flag from Oak Hill and a hat – both of which were signed by Block.

GolfDigest recently put Khaled on the cover of their June issue – with an in-depth article about his enthusiasm for the sport.

Block captured the hearts and minds of golf fans across the world with a stunning display at the PGA Championship.

The course pro from Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Orange County, California shocked the world – winning Low Professional, finishing tied for 15th, and getting an exemption into next year’s edition of the second major on the calendar.

And DJ Khaled isn’t the only new celebrity fan the professional attracted from his US PGA heroics.  

Speaking to the New York Post, Block has returned to his regular day job – but his success has meant some not-so-normal things have happened. For one, he got a message from one of the greatest sportsmen ever. 

‘Michael Jordan texted me, and I didn’t even see his original text at first,’ Block told the Post at Arroyo Trabuco. 

‘My Nike guy called me at Colonial and said, “Dude, did you see that Jordan texted you yesterday?” I’m like, “What? You gotta be kidding me,” because I had thousands of texts. It took me a half-hour of going through them to find it.’
