Two short years ago, most golf fans never heard the name Will Zalatoris. That has changed drastically as once Zalatoris was able to play in some PGA Tour events, he quickly made himself at home on the leaderboards. He scored a top-10 finish at the 2020 U.S. Open and almost won the 2021 Masters. Justin Thomas just edged him out earlier this year in a playoff at the PGA Championship, and observers knew it was only a matter of time before Zalatoris would win.

That prediction finally came true when he won the first playoff event in 2022, the FedEx St. Jude Championship, defeating Sepp Straka on the third playoff hole. Unfortunately, Zalatoris’ year came to an end when back problems flared up, and he won’t be able to play in this year’s Presidents Cup.

The good news is that much like Scottie Scheffler and David Duval, both of whom won prolifically once they won their first, Zalatoris is likely to lift quite a few more trophies in the next several years.
