The 2014 U.S. Junior Amateur champion will make his second U.S. Open appearance by virtue of leading the points list on the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour. Zalatoris, who missed the cut in the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, registered his first professional victory early this year at the TPC Colorado Championship. 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. Riley finished second on the Korn Ferry Tour points list.
