The 2014 U.S. Junior Amateur champion has enjoyed a meteoric rise in professional since tying for sixth in last year's U.S. Open at Winged Foot, where he tied for sixth in just his second start in the championship. Zalatoris gained a spot in the all-exempt field by his status on the Korn Ferry Tour. It also helped catapult him inside the top 50 of the Official World Ranking, which earned him a start in the 2021 Masters. In his debut at Augusta National, Zalatoris finished second, two strokes behind winner Hideki Matsuyama. Zalatoris' first professional victory came in the 2020 TPC Colorado Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour. Zalatoris enjoyed a decorated junior and amateur golf career, which culminated in him representing the USA on the victorious 2017 Walker Cup Team. In 2017, he also was a first-team All-American and the Atlantic Coast Conference's Player of the Year. His grandfather was a military pilot for 30 years, and his father and uncle were also pilots. His mom was a track and field athlete at the University of Oregon. Zalatoris defeated Davis Riley in the U.S. Junior Amateur final at The Club at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas.
