Will Zalatoris Career
Zalatoris began playing professionally back in 2018 but during the initial years, he failed to pass the first tour of the game named Korn Ferry Tour Q School. Having gained no status in professional life, Zalatoris later started appearing for Monday qualifying and sponsor exemption games to play for Korn Ferry Tour Events. Afterward, he secured membership for the remainder of the season back in July and tied for third place at the LECOM Health Challenge, where he finished while being 60th in the place and earned full status back in the 2020 season. Zalatoris had to work hard to achieve his first professional winning and thereby the time came when he could count a game in his winning streak and that was his victory in July 2020.
During that time, Zalatoris won the TPC Colorado Championship by one stroke and went forward to lead the Korn Ferry Tour and qualify for another game called US Open at Winged Foot. While playing for the US Open he aced the par-3 7th hole during the first round, and later replicated it with six holes, tying up for the sixth place and standing alongside the world number one player in the golf professional, Dustin Johnson. The US Open became one of the top-10 finishes among the major championships. Later, he appeared in other games like Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship and the Bermuda Championship. Back in May 2022, Zalatoris finished in second place in the major championship for the second time. Although he lost the game to another champion, Justin Thomas, he played well in the PGA Championship held at Southern Hills in Tulsa Oklahoma.
