Will Zalatoris

Zalatoris was born in San Francisco and began to play golf at California Golf Club, pounding endless practice balls. His family moved to Dallas when Will was nine and his father, Rick, took over a major mall renovation. There the family joined Bent Tree Country Club, and Will found himself in a world of junior golf talent. He played on the local Legends Junior Tour with the likes of Jordan Spieth, Scottie Scheffler and other eventual Division I players and budding pros. When he was 12, qualified for the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur, playing his first round of stroke play with current PGA Tour player Patrick Cantlay. Zalatoris shot 71-87 and didn't make it out of stroke play. Five years later, he won the U.S. Junior Amateur, and at the time was just one of seven people to play in five U.S. Junior Amateurs. In 2014, he also won the Texas State Amateur and Trans-Mississippi Championship.
Zalatoris attended Wake Forest on the esteemed Arnold Palmer scholarship where as a freshman in the 2014-15 season, he won the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate. In his sophomore season, he was All-ACC, and honorable mention All-American, winning the Rod Myers Invitational. Zalatoris received an exemption into the PGA Tour's AT&T Byron Nelson Classic and was named to the United States Palmer Cup team. As a junior at Wake Forest in 2017, Zalatoris received multiple honors: ACC Player of the Year, All-ACC, first team GCAA All-American, first team Golfweek All-American, Jack Nicklaus Award finalist, and Ben Hogan award semifinalist. He won the General Hackler Championship and finished under par in nine of 12 events. In 2017, he was also a member of the winning U.S. Walker Cup team at Los Angeles Country Club. In early 2018, Zalatoris turned pro before his final semester at Wake Forest, but didn't make it past the first stage of Q School for the Korn Ferry Tour. He made six PGA Tour starts, making one cut T-68th at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
2019 Korn Ferry Tour Summary: Tournaments Entered - 15; Rounds Played - 51; In Money - 11; Top-10 Finishes - 3; Scoring Average - 70.04 (Rank 23rd); Regular Season Money - $101,287 (Rank 59th); Priority Rank - 70th; Best Finish - T-3rd, LECOM Health Challenge. The LECOM Health Challenge finish earned Zalatoris status on the Korn Ferry Tour. In that year on the Korn Ferry Tour his ball-striking was strong. He was 3rd in greens in regulation but was poor in putting, ranking 146th in putting average. He switched to the arm-lock approach used by Bryson DeChambeau and fellow Wake Forest alum Webb Simpson, and finally found a stroke he believed in. Zalatoris also worked with swing coach Troy Denton and short-game coach Josh Gregory, refining his game and using ideas that combine strokes-gained data with course management. With that his game propelled in 2020.
2020 Notes: Played on the Korn Ferry Tour, in his first start of the season was T-4th at the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay, five shots back of winner Tommy Gainey. Coming back from the break his season became nearly flawless. In 11 Korn Ferry Tour starts before the U.S. Open won the TPC Colorado Championship by a shot over Chase Johnson. Was T-2nd at the Evans Scholars Invitational, a shot back of winner Curtis Thompson. Was T-3rd at the King & Bear Classic, three shots back of winner Chris Kirk. Was 4th at the Utah Championship a shot back of the Kyle Jones/Paul Harley/Daniel Summerhays playoff and T-5th at the TPC San Antonio Championship at the Oaks and Nationwide Children's. He was 6th at WinCo Foods Portland Open and Korn Ferry Challenge. While standing first on the Korn Ferry Tour Point list, Zalatoris qualified for the U.S. Open, where he finished T-6th, 11 shots back of winner Bryson DeChambeau at Winged Foot. One of the highlights of his week, Will made a hole-in-one at the seventh hole in the first round, the first ace of his PGA Tour career. With the top-10, earned a spot in the following week's Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. He made the cut on the number at Corales and went on to shoot 65 in the final round which lifted him to T-8th. That got him into the Sanderson Farms Championship, but he missed the cut. He was given a sponsor exemption into the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and finished T-5th, four shots back of the Martin Laird/Austin Cook/Matthew Wolff playoff. That top-10 got him into the Bermuda Championship and when he finished T-16th it earned him special temporary membership on the PGA Tour. With this, he is able to earn non-member FedExCup points and is a shoo-in to earn his PGA Tour card for 2022. To show how dramatic his rise has been, at the start of 2019 Zalatoris was 2,006th in the Official World Golf Ranking. At the start of 2020 Zalatoris was 672nd and with his finish at the U.S. Open climbed to 76th. At the end of the year was 59th and broke into the top-50 with his T-17th finish at the WM Phoenix Open in February. With the Korn Ferry Tour going to a two-year season in 2020-21, Zalatoris is still technically a member of that tour and in March was still number one on the Korn Ferry points list, though he is playing on the PGA Tour.
2021 Notes: He started the PGA Tour season with a T-6th at the U.S. Open, was T-8th at Corales, T-5th at the Shriners Hospitals For Children Open. He was T-7th at the Farmers Insurance Open, finishing six shots back of winner Patrick Reed. He was T-10th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Zalatoris was able to climb enough in the Official World Golf Ranking to play at the WGC-Workday Championship (T-22nd) and also at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and he also earned a spot in the Players Championship (finished 21st). Zalatoris didn't make it out of group play at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play but he ended ranked 45th in the world and got a Masters invitation.
