Michael Block joins star-studded field for International Series England

American star Block & home favourite Lewis confirmed for Foxhills in August

American cult hero Michael Block and local favourite Tom Lewis are the latest names confirmed to join a star-studded field for International Series England at Foxhills Club & Resort from 8-11 August 2024.

Block made the headlines worldwide last year when he hit a hole in one and finished in the top 15 of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club, the second major of the season, as a club professional.

Block said: “I’m really looking forward to teeing it up with the guys and there is no doubt that the strength of the field will be strong, however this is what I live for, to play against some of the best players in the world and compare my game.

“I believe The International Series is now one of the best possible avenues for any golf pro throughout the world and I have no doubt that you are going to see more and more budding American golfers doing their best to qualify and play in The International Series.”

American Michael Block, will play International Series England from 8-11 August at Foxhills Club & Resort.

Lewis, a member at Foxhills, grabbed international headlines by taking a share of the first-round lead in the 2011 Open Championship as a 20-year-old amateur.

He ultimately finished T30 at Royal St George’s, before turning professional and going on to win his maiden European Tour title in only his third professional start at the Portugal Masters later that year.

Home favourtie Tom Lewis, will play International Series England from 8-11 August at Foxhills Club & Resort.

The pair join a range of world-class stars from the LIV Golf League including the English trio of Ian Poulter (Majesticks GC), Richard Bland (Cleeks GC) and Sam Horsfield (Majesticks GC) who are sure to have a vocal home support.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell (Smash GC), the 2010 US Open champion, is also confirmed along with Harold Varner III (4Aces GC) and Hudson Swafford (wildcard) from the US, while India’s Anirban Lahiri (Crushers GC), Branden Grace from South Africa (Stinger GC) and Belgian star Thomas Pieters (RangeGoats GC), make it a truly international affair.

The tournament is the fourth of 10 elevated events on the Asian Tour that form a pathway onto the LIV Golf League.

The cream of the Asian Tour will also be competing, as part of the season-long race for The International Series Rankings title, with the champion securing a place on the LIV Golf League and over 30 places available for the season-ending LIV Golf Promotions event.

American John Catlin, who won back-to-back events at the International Series Macau presented by Wynn and the Saudi Open presented by PIF, is currently second on The International Series Rankings, and he will be looking to close the gap on current leader Carlos Ortiz.

Two-time Hong Kong Open winner Wade Ormsby is also one of the men to watch alongside multiple Asian Tour champions Gaganjeet Bhullar of India and Scott Hend of Australia.
