Will Zalatoris

25-Year-Old Golfer
2021–22 Fantasy Outlook
Zalatoris earned Special Temporary Membership on the PGA Tour rather quickly after winning the Korn Ferry Tour's TPC Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes in July of 2020, though he remained ineligible for the FedExCup Playoffs without having also notched a victory at the PGA level. In addition to eight top-10s and 14 total top-25s through 25 starts on the PGA Tour in 2020-21, Zalatoris' exceptional rookie campaign will be remembered for his runner-up effort at the 2021 Masters during his Augusta National debut. Zalatoris ultimately ranked seventh on tour in SG: approach, ninth in SG: tee-to-green and 11th in par-5 scoring. The sky is the limit for the 25-year-old Wake Forest product if the putter begins to cooperate on a more consistent basis. Read Past Outlooks
Misses cut in Mexico
November 8, 2021
Zalatoris carded a 36-hole total of two-under-par at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba to miss the cut by two shots.
ANALYSIS
Zalatoris recorded three bogeys and a double during Thursday's first round, and a two-under 69 on Friday wasn't good enough to advance to the weekend in Mexico. He'll remain 32nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, but Zalatoris won't tee it up at the upcoming Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The leader on the Korn Ferry Tour's points list has risen to a career-best 143rd in the Official World Golf Ranking thanks in part to nine top-10s in 15 starts on the KFT during the 2020 season, which included a win at the TPC Colorado Championship in early July. Zalatoris, a 24-year-old Wake Forest product, led the KFT in GIR percentage along the way while also ranking seventh in birdie average, fourth in total driving and first in total eagles. This combination indicates quite a bit of future fantasy upside if he's able to translate such quality ball-striking to the big-league venues.
