Michael Block is a man in demand.
Fresh from his breakthrough performance at the PGA Championship, the US club pro has reportedly been offered a six-figure sum to be one of the faces of an adult website.
My.Club, an adult subscription platform, has invited Block to become its “golf professional” for the next 12 months.
As part of his “job”, he would be charged with sending out instructional videos, providing coaching tips, and even swing analysis for users by personally chatting with them.
In return, he would be compensated with up to $300,000 – more than the $288,333 he won at Oak Hill last weekend.
In an open letter to Block, Mike Ford, the vice president of My.Club, said: “Our goal is to bring your expertise and professional insight to the masses and show how My.Club can be utilised to monetise sports lessons and other activities for adult audiences.”
Block has, so far, not responded publicly to the offer.
The 46-year-old stole the show during last week’s PGA, finishing in a tie for 15th to secure his place in next year’s championship at Valhalla.

He has subsequently been given an invite to play in this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial and will also peg it up at the RBC Canadian Open in a fortnight’s time.
Block, who had a hole-in-one on Sunday in the company of Rory McIlroy, stole the show at Oak Hill, which he described as “a surreal experience”.
“I had this weird kind of sensation that life is going to be not quite the same moving forward, but only in a good way, which is cool,” he said.
“I’m just having a good time, and I’m going to take that same vibe to Fort Worth next week and have a good time.”
