Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
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.
